BI/TB on uTCA, LIU wire-scanner results and AWAKE status

866/2-D05 (CERN)



Show room on map

uTCA (Tom)

  • Go/no-go for BE/CO support by the end of 2017 (RF PoC will determine)
  • If Go then operational platform in parallel to VME by 2021
  • BI to identify whether uTCA option for new systems / upgrades
  • mTCA conference at DESY by end of 2017 ( - send people from BI?
  • VME support expected for another 15 years

MEN-A25 (Adam)

  • DMA (zero-copy) access not yet available from MEN (expected in the coming weeks)
  • First test systems to equipment groups by Nov'17
  • First operational systems expected by Q1/2018
  • 2nd Ethernet port can be made with XMC mezzanine (quote pending at BE/CO)

LIU-BWS prototypes (Jose)

  • PSB scanner: issue with glass disk slippage will be resolved next week
  • SPS scanner: use system for HDR detection (bunch by bunch)
  • Calibration bench: compensation of systematic errors into operational installation to be verified (noise/vibration)
  • Milestone for metal disk yet to be decided (Ray et al)

AWAKE (Stefano)

  • Next phase - installation to be finished by end of October (supports for spectrometer line)
  • Simulaneous OTR measurements (p+, e- and laser) being assessed
  • Influence of plasma on downstream BPM (button/stripline) still needs more studies
  • Budget requested for short bunch lenght measurements for 2018 (CLEAR)
There are minutes attached to this event. Show them.
