Abstract
The PS Booster delivers particles for most of the CERN experiments. The PS complex will become particle source for LHC in 2007. For this reason PS complex electronics is continuously upgraded to meet new requirements in performance and remote management. A new acquisition system has been developed to allow the measurement of the individual intensity of each bunch in a 1Hz bunch train. Such a system will be used for the measurement of beams at the injection, ejection and acceleration lines . The method is based on integrating of the analogue signal supplied by a Beam Current Transformer. The signal is sampled by two 12 bits ADCs with 20x oversampling. The output of ADC is then processed in FPGA, where the rest of the signal processing is performed. The measurement system was build as a standard VME module. Apart from that, on same board there were implemented current and charge calibrators.
