Status of BEPCII Timing System

Presented by Ge Lei

IMAC 2006


  • Ordered hardware have all arrived and been tested. Besides, we have developed some hardware to fit our special requirements.

  • Prototype of trigging E-Gun, linac modulators, injecting kickers have been set up based on EVG/EVR series 200 modules and TD4V. Software has been developed.

  • Timing system has been installed in BEPCII Linac accelerator, in real operation, working well.

  • Jitters have been measured, in both office and Linac control site.

  • Challenges faced and solved: mis-trigs, missed trigs

  • Challenges facing: bucket selection, work with BCM, etc.

BEPCIItiming sequence

Timing prototype based on E4434B,MVME5100,EVG-200, EVR-RF-200, EVR-200, TTB, FOUT7, GUNTX, GUNRX, TTL-NIM transition board, TD4V

Linac timing works

  • Hardware developed

    • 220volts to 3.8volts transmitter for EVG,

    • 12v output transition board for SolidAmplifier,

    • 18 sets of optical transimitting/receiving boards, for gun power supply, positron source, and 16 modulators

    • Gun-Rx module changed to generate NIM outputs directly,

  • Software developed,

    • Debug register settings for EVG-, EVR-200, TD4v, Gun-Tx

    • IOC database and OPI to test EVG-200,EVR-200,TD4v,Gun-Tx

    • EVG/EVR FPGA upgraded, tune EVRs

    • IOC database and OPI for linac timing operating, including BI

    • Applications to record arriving time of trigs in order to analyze the missed trigs

    • Functions added to drivers to set EVG/EVR registers to work at 499.8MHz/4, /5, /10

Linac timing works

  • The fibre optical cables were installed in linac acce. site in Jan.

  • On Feb.15,2006, we began moving our timing devices from office to linac control site,

    • install modules, connect cables, settle network, test applications, measure jitter

    • on Mar.1, we went to tunnel and installed GUN-RX in the high voltage deck, successfully set the trigs to e-gun.

  • Work whenever linac people need us for the linac commissioning, to adjust timing delay settings of trigs to e-gun, solid amplifier, PSK, gun power supply, positron source, 16 modulators.

Linac timing works

  • Problem suffered: (hope our experience in linac can do some helps to storage ring)

    • Unexpected power down,

    • Unexpected network down

    • EMI

  • Challenge faced (solutions found)

    • Mis-trigs

    • Missed trigs

  • Improving graphical user interface

  • Phase shift due to temperature changing has been measured in March

Jitter Measurement

Use histogram and Jitter3AnalyserEssential seperately, to measure

  • Pk-Pk

  • StdDev: Standard Deviation:

Jitter Measurement results

Signal source: Agilent E4434B

Measure Equipment: Tektronics TDS7254B oscillator

Result: E-Gun trig to 499.8MHz signal source, standard deviation of jitter

  • at office: 36ps

  • at linac control site: 47ps

    The above data include the jitter of power divider, event generator, fanout module, event receiver, gun trig transmitter, gun trig receiver, TTL-NIM transition board and all cables.

Jitter measured using Jitter3AnalyserEssential , output of TTL-NIM transition board to 499.8MHz from signal source, at office

Phase detector designed by Zhenhan Ma, almost done. Resolution is less than 1 degree in scope from -180 degrees to 180 degrees of 1MHz signals
