  The planned Proton LINAC at the FAIR facility will provide a beam current from 35 to 70 mA accelerated to 70 MeV by novel CH-type DTLs. Four-fold button Beam Position Monitor (BPM) will be installed at 14 locations along the LINAC and some of these BPMs are mounted only about 40 mm upstream of the CH cavities. The coupling of the RF accelerating field to the BPMs installed close to the CH cavities was numerically investigated. For the digital signal processing using I/Q demodulation a 'Libera Single Pass H' is foreseen. The properties of this digitization and processing scheme were characterized by detailed lab-based tests. Moreover, the performance was investigated by a 80 μA Ne4+ beam at 1.4 MeV / u and compared to a time-domain approach and successive FFT calculation. In particular, concerning the phase determination significant deviations between the methods were observed and further investigations to understand the reason are ongoing.
