  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.
