Paper Abstract

The Linac-4 linear accelerator will be part of a new, upgraded injection chain for the Large Hardon Collider. Its construction must meet very high requirements for the beam parameters. One of critical ones is a beam profile. This will be measured using among the others, Secondary Emission Grids. Such a device consists of several thin wires, equipped with the amplifier and dedicated readout electronics. The presented VME Card simultaneously samples 36 differential channels allowing precision beam profile measurements. The other applications of the card include LHC DC current transformers readout and general fast and precision data acquisition.
