Abstract

The stripline BPMs of AWAKE (The Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment at CERN) are required to measure the position of the single electron bunch with a resolution of 10 um rms, for the bunch charge of 100 pC to 1 nC. This paper presents a AFE-Digital processing system developed at TRIUMF (Canada) which achieved such performance. The design of the electronics readout system is reviewed. The beam test results at CALIFES of CERN are also described.
