uTCA / Stand-alone LLRF
Digital RF stabilization system
Our digital RF stabilization system is available on the uTCA or stand-alone form-factors for best in-class LLRF solutions. They are our new fully digital RF systems designed to offer an accurate control of electromagnetic field inside the any accelerating cavities and playing a key role in the overall performance of any particle accelerator. Our solution is tailored on customer needs and take full advantage of our previous expertise on PCIe-S LLRF equipment now working with the most advance crate technologies.
Main performance highlights
• Amplitude stability: 0.02%
• Phase stability: 0.3 degree
• Amplitude precision: 0.03% Vpp
• Phase precision: 0.03 degree
• PI delay (input to output delay): below 1us
• RMS jitter: 182 fs (LLRF output jitter working in closed-loop with amplitude and phase control)
