  SOLEIL is a third generation synchrotron radiation source located near Paris in France. REVOLUTION (REconsider Various contrOLler for yoUr motion) is the motion controller upgrade project currently in progress at SOLEIL. It was initiated to maintain the facility operations by addressing the risk of hardware obsolescence in motion control but at the same time making room for complex applications requirements to face new high performance challenges. In order to achieve these considerations, SOLEIL's strategy move was to go from a single controller for all applications to two motion controllers. A first Controller GALIL DMC-4183 was chosen to succeed the previous version DMC-2182. Both controllers can be integrated in the existing architecture with little hardware and software adaptation enabling full compatibility with the existing architecture. A second controller, Delta Tau Power Brick, has been selected as a HIGH PERFORMANCE solution providing advanced functionality. The CLASSIC controller upgrade is about to be completed and the integration of Power Brick into the SOLEIL control system is ongoing. The system complexity is abstracted by embedding processing functions into low-level code and giving end-users a simple high-level interface. The work done to structure the interfacing and standardization of the controller are detailed in this paper.

  SOLEIL is continuously optimizing its 29 beamlines in order to provide its users with state of the art synchrotron radiation based experimental techniques. Among the topics addressed by the related transversal projects, the enhancement of the computing tools is identified as a high priority task. In this area, the aim is to optimize the beam time usage providing the users with a fast, simultaneous and multi-technique scanning platform. The concrete implementation of this general concept allows the users to acquire more data in the same amount of beam time. The present paper provides the reader with an overview of so call 'Flyscan' project currently under deployment at SOLEIL. It notably details a solution in which an unbounded number of distributed actuators and sensors share a common trigger clock and deliver their data into temporary files. The latter are immediately merged into common file(s) in order to make the whole experiment data available for on-line processing and visualization. Some application examples are also commented in order to illustrate the advantages of the Flyscan approach.
