  abstract     = {{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.}},
