Paper Abstract

A new acquisition system has been developed to allow the measurement of an individual intensity of each bunch in a bunch train. Such a system will be used for the measurement of beams at the injection, ejection and acceleration lines. The method is based on integrating of the analogue signal supplied by a Beam Current Transformer (BCT). The signal is sampled by two 12 bits ADCs. The output of the ADC is then processed in the FPGA, where the rest of the signal processing is performed. In case of the Proton Synchrotron (PS), special synchronization algorithm has been developed. The measurement system was build as a standard VME module. Apart from that, on the same board there were implemented current and charge calibrators.
