The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) is developing a 644 MHz superconducting (SC) cavity for a future upgrade project. The current low level radio frequency (LLRF) controller at FRIB is not able to operate at 644 MHz. The Ultrafast Electron Microscope (UEM) laboratory within the Department of Physics at Michigan State University designed an LLRF controller based on analog RF components to operate a 1.013 GHz room temperature (RT) cavity. With requirements for improved stability, performance and user controls there was a need to upgrade the analog LLRF controller. The FRIB radio frequency (RF) group designed, developed and fabricated a new digital LLRF controller, with high-speed serial interface between system on chip field programmable gate array and fast data converters and capable of high frequency direct sampling, to meet the requirements of 644 MHz SC cavity and 1.013 GHz UEM RT cavity. This paper gives an overview of the upgraded digital LLRF controller, its features, improvements and preliminary test results.

  The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) control system includes many data channels that are timed and flavored, i.e., users can specify the species of beam and time within the beam pulse at which data are reported. The legacy LANSCE control system accom-plished this task by queuing up application software-initiated requests and scheduling Analog to Digital Con-verter (ADC) readout with custom programmable time-delay gated and multiplexed Remote Information and Control Equipment (RICE). This year we upgraded this system to a new Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) system that includes signal ded-icated waveform digitizer. An appropriate subset of the data is then returned as specified by each client. This is made possible by improvements to EPICS software, a Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Mezzanine Card (FMC) based ADC and a COTS VPX FPGA card with EPICS embedded on a soft-core processor. This year we upgraded over 1200 waveform channels from RICE to the new TDAQ (Timed/flavored Data Acquisition) system.
