1 Embedded Solutions for EPICS Based Control Systems Miroslaw Dach Goran Marinkovic Paul Scherrer Institut Switzerland

2 Embedded systems with FPGA circuits are becoming very popular for new developments including physics facilities like accelerators. Background

3 Work Objectives Integration of Xilinx based boards with the SLS control system Integration of Xilinx based boards with the SLS control system in order to control and to monitor the FPGAs by means of EPICS.

4 Main concept FPGA Xilinx chip PPC405 RAM I/O Dev LAN Proposal: to run EPICS on top of Linux OS

5 Avnet Xilinx Virtex-4 evaluation board Virtex-4 with PPC405 JTAG Serial interface Network interface EEPROM 8 MB FLASH 4 MB SDRAM32 MB LCD display LEDs, Dip-switches User I/O

6 Cross development tool-chain –gcc glibc Das u-Boot (Universal boot loader) Linux kernel Busy box (core of the root file system) –ssh, ntpd, screen, web server Epics server –GPMM drviver (with interrupt handling) –PCMON –SYNAPS, STREAM driver Software components

11 Board could be easily setup through web pages. Board Setup WAN LAN PLCOscillosco pe EPICS Server Motion Controller

12 EPICS and GPMM GPMM (General Purpose Memory Mapped) driver provides an easy and flexible way to interface most of the new generation cards and borads to the EPICS based control system.

13 EPICS and GPMM GPMM could be used under VxWorks or Linux operating systems.

14 EPICS and GPMM GPMM in brief

18 The performance of embedded systems has increased significantly over last years. Therefore they could be easily integrated to the control system with EPICS server running locally. In order to speedup the development process the GPMM driver was introduced. Conclusions
