A prototype of a stripline Beam Position Monitor (BPM) with its associated readout electronics has been developed at CERN in collaboration with SLAC, LAPP and IFIC. In this paper, the design and simulations of the BPM with the analog readout chain and the BPM test bench are described, and the results of the first characterization tests are presented. The position resolution and accuracy parameters are expected to be below 2μm and 20μm respectively for a beam with a bunching frequency of 12GHz, an average current of 101A and a machine repetition rate of 50Hz.
