  The European X-ray free electron laser accelerator consists of 800 superconducting cavities grouped in 25 RF stations. The challenges associated with the size and complexity of this accelerator required a high-precision, modular and scalable low level RF (LLRF) system. TheμTCA technology (uTCA) was chosen to support this system and adapted for RF standards. State-of-the-art hardware development in close collaboration with the industry allowed for the system continuity and maintainability. The complete LLRF system design is now in its final phase and the designed hardware was installed and commissioned at FLASH. The uTCA hardware system, measurement results and system performance validation will be shown. Operational strategy and plans for future automation algorithms for performance optimization will also be presented in this paper.
