The accelerator control systems at CERN will be renovated and many electronics modules like analog and digital I/O, level converters and repeaters, serial links and timing modules are being redesigned. The new developments are based on VITA and PCI-SIG standards such as FMC, PCI Express and VME64x. The Wishbone specification is used as SoC bus. To attract partners, the projects are developed in an ‘Open’ fashion. Within this Open Hardware project new ways of working with industry are being tested and it will be shown that industry can be involved at all stages, from design to production and support.
