  A BPM system has been developed for the new low emmitance 3 GeV Brazilian synchrotron light source, Sirius. The Sirius BPM electronics is a modular system based on a PICMG(R) MicroTCA.4 platform using ADC mezzanine cards in ANSI/VITA 57.1 FMC form factor and standalone RF front-end boards. It has been designed under the CERN Open Hardware License (OHL) in a collaboration between Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) and Warsaw University of Technology (WUT). This paper presents: i) overall architecture of the BPM system; ii) performance evaluation of the first prototype of the BPM electronics comprehending beam current, filling pattern and temperature dependencies as well as resolution vs. beam current; and iii) preliminary results with beam at LNLS's UVX storage ring.

  Tight stability requirements for new low emittance light sources, such as SIRIUS being built in Brazil, strongly depend on the BPM RF Front-End performance. Small nonlinearities, uneven temperature drifts and excess noise can spoil the performance of the whole digital BPM system and orbit correction. Calibration and temperature control schemes have been tested in order to suppress position measurement drifts during user beam delivery down to a fraction of micrometer. A method for measuring electronic component nonlinearities at mdB scale is also presented.
