  Toward SuperKEKB project, the injector linac upgrade is ongoing for aiming at the stable beam operation with low emittance and high intensity bunch charge. One of the key challenges is a low emittance preservation of electron beam because the vertical emittance of 20 mm.mrad or less should be transported to the main ring without a damping ring. For this purpose, the fine alignment of accelerator components is a crucial issue since the linac alignment was badly damaged by the big earthquake in 2011. From the simulation results of emittance growth, the alignment of the quadrupole magnets and accelerating structures should be conducted at the level of 300 um in rms along the 600-m-long linac. In addition, we are aiming at the level of 100 um alignment in rms within the short range distance of 100 m long. Even after the fine component alignment can be achieved, the fine beam orbit manipulation is necessary for low emittance preservation. For these reasons, a new BPM readout system based on VME64x, was developed. The new system has improved the precision of beam position measurement up to 3 um from 25 um. In this paper the software development of the new BPM readout system is described.

  Toward SuperKEKB project, the injector linac upgrade is ongoing for aiming at the stable electron/positron beam operation with low emittance and high intensity bunch charge. To obtain such high quality beam, we have being commissioning many newly developed subsystems including a low emittance photocathode rf gun since October of 2013. Eventually, we will perform the simultaneous top-up for the four independent storage rings including two light sources. The stable beam operation as long as possible is desired since the prospective physics results strongly depends on the reliability and availability of accelerator operation. Since the middle stage of KEKB project, the injector linac control system has been gradually transferred to the EPICS based one from the in-house system based on RPC. We are expanding the existing control system for the newly installed devices like a network attached power supply, timing jitter monitoring system, and so on. In addition, many commissioning tools are now under development to accelerate the high quality beam development. In this paper, we will describe the present status of injector linac control system and future plan in detail.

  SuperKEKB is the upgrade of KEKB, which is the world's largest luminosity accelerator at KEK. One of key items to realize 40 times larger luminosity than that of KEKB is damping ring (DR) for positron injection. The injector linac (LINAC) once stores the produced positrons into DR and suppress their emittance. Then low emittance positrons are extracted from DR and injected into the main ring. For this complicated injection process, the Event Timing System* for LINAC** was upgraded and its soundness is demonstrated by injecting electrons into two light source rings***. New Event modules were also installed under the Event network for LINAC as the sub timing system for DR. New Event modules were developed which can be operated with the different Event clock from that of upstream modules. It solves the difference in RF frequency between LINAC (2856MHz) and DR (509MHz). This sub timing system can manage the triggers towards totally 84 BPMs at DR although it consists of only 5 Event modules. The timing of those triggers can be independently set in more precise than 100ps. The requirements to DR timing system and the newly developed modules with its configuration at DR are explained.
