Libera Spark EL
Libera Spark is a compact beam position processor that offers high-precision position measurement of different beam types (electrons, protons, ions, etc.). It is optimized to work with button, stripline and shoe-box pickups. The digital signal processing (DSP) supports detailed adjustment of the processing window and position measurement in various regimes and bandwidths.
Depending on the requirements and the Libera Spark version, the data available to the user ranges from bunch-to-bunch, turn-by-turn to slow data stream.
- Best price/performance ratio
- Compact and robust design
- Power over Ethernet
- Source code available
- No maintenance required
- EPICS & Tango & MATLAB ready
For demonstration purposes, Libera Spark can be fully controlled with a Qt Graphical User Interface. It uses a netcat utility that connects to Libera Spark via SCPI set/read commands. Check example figures and tutorial videos.
