  1. mTCA use in Linac to replace CAMAC Tom Himel June 4, 2012

  2. Outline • General plan for replacing the linac CAMAC. • Can it be done without disrupting the accelerator run schedule? • Budget and schedule

  3. General plan (1 of 3) • As mentioned in my introductory talk: • Had planned to replace CAMAC in sectors 10-20 during four 7 month long annual downtimes of FACET. • This would save cost of doing the phase I upgrade for LCLS-II • Would allow LCLS-II to start with new hardware. • Very unlikely to happen on this time-scale as all available resources are needed for upgrades more essential for LCLS-II

  4. General plan (2 of 3) • Full CAMAC replacement is now far enough in the future, have not made new detailed plans. • Do want intermediate improvements to be compatible with future plans • E.g. LCLS-II linac needs BPMs with better resolution and lower charge sensitivity than present CAMAC readout. • Best if done with final architecture so infrastructure can be shared with other systems and have best most modern hardware

  5. General plan (3 of 3) • If lab decides to use sectors 1-10 for FACET-II followed by LCLS-III, will propose to do those 10 sectors first during the long downtimes of FACET, then spread to rest of linac after we have all procedures down pat. • Otherwise will start in LCLS I or II sectors during down days and the 2 month annual downtimes. • Systems where we are happy with LCLS-I solution will mostly be duplicated. Systems with no or problematic LCLS-I solutions will be redone, typically in mTCA • High channel count systems are the most important to develop early.

  6. Plans by system • LLRF: • LCLS-I still depends on CAMAC. PADs and PACs supplement the CAMAC on a few stations. All interlocks, timing and some analog readings are done with PIOP and MKSU • Replace with mTCA and MKSU-II (interlock and diagnostic network attached device (NAD) developed as part of the LLRF AIP project) • BPM: • Upgraded linac LCLS-I has VME + NAD which works well. Cannot do 2 bunch, very kludgey. • Replace CAMAC with mTCA. • Present CAMAC system inadequate for low current running.

  7. Plans by system • Quads/Bends: • Upgraded linac LCLS uses NAD which works well • Duplicate • Present CAMAC + rack mounted controller solution has regulation problems at low current. • Correctors • Upgraded linac LCLS uses VME ADC and DAC and PLC to control 2 bulk supplies and 16 corrector channels. Works fine but expensive • AIP developing new controller that goes in the crate with the 16 channels and replaces the VME and PLC functionality. Makes the power supply crate a NAD similar to that for the Quad power supply controller • Will use the AIP solution

  8. Plans by system • Machine Protection • Upgraded linac LCLS uses home-brew “link node” chassis that has plug in cards some of which are COTS, others are home-brew. Works well. • Will probably duplicate as requirements are odd enough that COTS solution is unlikely • Vacuum: • LCLS non-linac uses signal conditioning chassis + COTS PLC’s • duplicate

  9. Plans by system • Temperatures and other slow ADCs • LCLS non-linac uses Beckoff I/O. Cheap, works well. • Duplicate • Digital I/O • LCLS non-linac uses IP cards on VME carrier board • Will use same IP cards on mTCA carrier.

  10. Plans by system • Small channel count diagnostics like toroids, Faraday cups, profile monitors, wire scanners • LCLS solutions have various problems • Will improve for LCLS-II as allowed. • For toroid would build a new RTM for same ADC used for LLRF • Linac upgrade will either duplicate the improved versions or, if needed, develop improved versions probably in mTCA.

  11. Installation without disruption • We have considerable experience at this. • Process: • Test in lab • Test in part of linac not in use • Where possible (not too many cables), develop quick switch over from old to new and back • Install and test on down days • Phase I was done this way with virtually no disruption of accelerator program. See “Changing horses mid-stream” at

  12. Installation without disruption • Most RF stations can be taken offline, worked on and put back online while the linac is running. Main exceptions are injector klystrons. • The mTCA LLRF testing was done this way using cable adaptors to make the switching of cables quick. • Some systems like vacuum and MPS will have to have their final connections made during the two month downtimes.

  13. Cost comparision • The two biggest (and hence most expensive) systems are LLRF and BPMs. • They are also the only systems for which we have seriously looked at more than one solution. • Dan and Qiao showed that the costs for the considered solutions were quite similar • Expect the same to be true for other locations of the same types of hardware

  14. Linac upgrade cost and schedule • As I mentioned before, we have not updated the cost and schedule for upgrading the linac as the start date is distant and uncertain. • I’ll show some of what we presented at the last review. • Mention a few possible changes

  15. Budget Cost Analysis • Resource Cost Estimates • All tasks detailed • Resources identified • Discussed details w/ resources for estimates • Summed resources vs. draft schedule • Performed similar exercise for RF (already approved AIP) • Totaled all manpower costs vs. time (24 mo.)

  16. Hardware Cost Estimates • MTCA Infrastructure • COTS based on actual quotes or vendor budgetary quotes • Includes crate, power modules, Hub Controller, Processor IOC, Timing Module • Timing module not yet a commercial item but base cost on similar commercial products

  17. Hardware Costs 2 • Applications Modules • AMCs: ADC-DAC, 3-IP, PMC adapter • ADC-DAC: Vendor quotes, DESY target (Strück); Vadatech quote pending • 3-IP: quote in hand (TEWS) • PMC: Quotes pending (Vadatech,TEWS) • US 2nd sources: • Buying first articles to specification, compatible RTM • Timing • Source is Stockholm U., working to develop vendors

  18. Estimated 10-Sector CostT. Himel 1440 1440 • Assume LI11-20 Column costs • Solid state sub-booster required • Modulator PLC not required • BCS & Power Supplies Included • RF Station Unit Cost = $28K 13110

  19. Summary • The R&D for the major systems is well advanced. • We still have a few implementation decisions to make on the minor systems • We have a rough and somewhat out of date cost estimate • We have experience doing upgrades during short downtimes and while this one involves more cables, it is still doable
