SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory MicroTCA.4 Collaboration
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has two microTCA collaborations with other laboratories. These collaborations are to developed BPM systems with European Spallation Source (ESS) and Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL). The ESS collaboration is designing a new Rear Transition Module (RTM) that can be used as a BPM interface and as a LLRF interface for a development system. The PAL collaboration is designing a stripline BPM system for the LINAC for the XFEL project. This consists of 145 ADC and RTMs all packaged into 17 microTCA crates that consists of power modules.
Work Funded though CRADA 13-219C and WFO 13-197.A4
