  The linear accelerator REGAE (Relativistic Electron Gun for Atomic Exploration) at DESY delivers electron bunches with a few femtosecond duration for time-resolved experiments of material structure in pump-probe configuration. To achieve the desired 10 fs resolution, the Low Level RF controls for the normal conducting S-band cavities must provide field stability of 0.01% in amplitude and of 0.01deg in phase. To achieve these demanding stability a recently developed LLRF controller based on the Micro-Telecommunications Computing Architecture (MTCA.4) have been installed and commission. In this paper, we report on measurement performance of the LLRF system, the achieved stability and current limitations.

  The European XFEL is comprised of more than 800 TESLA-type super-conducting accelerator cavities which are driven by 25 high-power multi-beam klystrons. For reliable, reproducible and maintainable operation of linac, the LLRF system will process more than 3000 RF channels. Beside the large number of RF channels to be processed, stable FEL operation demands field stability better than 0.010deg in phase and 0.01% in amplitude. To cope with these challenges the LLRF system is developed on MTCA.4 platform. In this paper, we will give an update of the latest electronics developments, advances in the feedback controller algorithm and measurement results at FLASH.
