  For the SuperKEKB project, a new LLRF control system was developed to realize high accuracy and flexibility. It is an FPGA-based digital RF feedback control system using 16-bit ADC's, which works on the μTCA platform. The FPGA boards control accelerating cavity fields and cavity tuning, and the EPICS-IOC is embedded in each of them. The CSS-BOY was adopted for a user interface of our system. High power test of the new LLRF control system was performed with the ARES Cavity of KEKB. The obtained feedback control stability with a klystron drive was sufficient as well as the low-level evaluation result. And auto tuner control also worded successfully. The start-up sequencer program for the cavity operation and auto-aging program also worked very well. The temperature characteristics of the system depend largely on band-pass filters (BPF). We tried to tune the BPF to reduce the temperature coefficient. Consequently the temperature dependence was improved to satisfy the required stability.
