  Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL) has been building the X-Ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL), a fourth-generation accelerator, and the construction will be complete in 2015. To successfully construct the XFEL, PAL built an injection test facility (ITF) in 2012, and the facility is in operation. The ITF examines the efficiency of various diagnostic units through extended tests. A BPM is a diagnostic unit that measures the position of an electron bunch. There are various kinds of BPM, and they have different merits and demerits. A user can select any kind of BPM that is appropriate for their purpose, and install it after going through various design and production processes. In order to measure the position of an electron bunch, a cavity BPM is installed at an undulator of PAL-XFEL and a stripline BPM is installed at an accelerator. The efficiency of the stripline BPM was tested at the ITF. The X-band cavity BPM was produced and is being tested at the ITF. This paper aims to introduce the specification and properties of the cavity BPM and stripline BPM to be installed at PAL-XFEL, and explain the physical concept and the way of measuring necessary for designing a stripline pickup.
