Extending the Life of the VME Infrastructure at BNL
A large installation of VME controllers have been used to control and monitor the RHIC Accelerator complex at BNL. As this equipment ages a number of upgrade options are being pursued. This paper describes an FPGA based VME controller board development being undertaken to provide a upgrade path for control applications that reuses existing racks and power supplies and a catalogue of custom application boards. This board is based on a Xilinx Zynq that includes an ARM-9 and a large FPGA fabric.doi:10.18429/jacow-icalepcs2019-tuapp04 fatcat:3t7ctub65zgbdpwvvvfjwkfula
