Overview of Current and Future Platforms for Big Experiments/Different Types of Machines  
  • R. Beauregard
    CLS, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
  Many facilities are in the process of or considering moving towards MTCA platforms for future diagnostics systems. Talk could highlight what progress has been made for various diagnostics systems such as multibunch feedback, BPMs and orbit feedback etc., as well as future plans. Development of firmware to support diagnostics applications. Could consider benefits and constraints in the perspective of operation of diagnostics on accelerators. Should be applicable to all types of machine; linear, circular, hadron, electron.

WE2C02 Software Defined Radio Based Feedback System for Transverse Beam Excitation 306

Controlling stored beams in particle accelerators requires specially designed RF signals, such as needed for spill control via transverse excitation. The software-defined radio (SDR) technology is adopted as a low cost, yet highly flexible setup to generate such signals in the kHz to MHz regime. A feedback system is build using a combination of digital signal processing with GNU Radio and RF Network-on-Chip (RFNoC) on a Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP). The system enables digitization of signals from particle detectors and direct tuning of the produced RF waveforms via a feedback controller – implemented on a single device. To allow for triggered operation and to reduce the loop delay to a few ms, custom OOT and RFNoC blocks have been implemented. This contribution reports on the implementation and first test results with beam of the developed spill control system.

Many beam instrumentation systems at Brookhaven National Laboratory¿s Collider-Accelerator complex are over 20 years old and in need of upgrading due to obsolete components, old technology and the desire to provide improved performance and enhanced capabilities. In addition, many new beam instrumentation systems will be developed for the future Electron Ion Collider (EIC) that will be housed in the existing Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) tunnel. A new BNL designed custom hardware architecture is planned for both upgrades in the existing facility and new systems for the EIC. A general-purpose carrier board based on the Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ System-on-Chip (SoC) will interface with a family of application specific daughter cards to satisfy the requirements for each system. This paper will present the general architecture that is planned, as well as details for some of the application specific daughter cards that will be developed.
