  At FAIR the re-assembly of the well known CRYRING accelerator, formerly hosted by Manne Siegbahn Laboratory (MSL) Stockholm, is currently in progress. This compact low energy heavy ion synchrotron and experimental storage ring will be a testing platform for all control system (CS) concepts decided on for FAIR. The CRYRING CS will be based on the system originally developed by CERN which combines the JAVA based application level LSA (LHC Software Architecture) , the data acquisition level FESA (Front-End Software Architecture) and the White Rabbit based timing system. All parts have been enhanced with GSI specific functionality. In preparation for the commissioning of CRYRING later in 2015 all required beam instrumentation (BI) equipment including the software is now under development. The data acquisition (DAQ) concepts for the various instruments is presented, with emphasis on the seamless integration into the overall CS. For standard BI systems, such as digital imaging, profile and intensity measurement, VME and IndustryPC based DAQ systems are used. For beam position monitoring a new hardware strategy which combines the microTCA and FMC (FPGA mezzanine card) form factors is under evaluation.

MOPGF176 Control System Challenges from an Upgrade to the Diamond Light Source Storage Ring controls, vacuum, storage-ring, sextupole 1

  In 2016 Diamond Light Source will replace one double bend achromatic cell of the Storage Ring with two double bend achromatic cells in the same longitudinal space. This will create an additional straight section for an insertion device (ID), thereby converting a bending magnet source point into and ID source point. Installation of the two new cells and recommissioning of the SR will take place in an eight week shutdown. The additional components in the two new cells necessitate a substantial reworking of the interface layer of control system, together with changes to all applications dependent on the physics parameters of the storage ring. This paper will describe how it is planned to manage the control system aspects of the project.

THHB2O02 A Modular Approach to Acquisition Systems for Future CERN Beam Instrumentation Developments radiation, FPGA, timing, interface 1

  This paper will present the new modular architecture adopted as a baseline by the CERN Beam Instrumentation Group for its future acquisition system developments. The main blocks of this architecture are: radiation tolerant digital front-ends; a latency deterministic multi gigabit optical link; a high pin count FMC carrier used as a VME-based back-end for data concentration and processing. Details will be given on the design criteria for each of these modules as well as examples of their use in systems currently being developed at CERN.
