  Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility is a third-generation light source with 150MeV LINAC, 3.5Gev booster, and storage ring. The SSRF control system is a hierarchical standard accelerator control system based on EPICS. The VME 64X system and PLCs are used for various low-level device controls and interlock systems. Serial device servers connect serial devices and instrumentation to the Ethernet. All control subsystems are under construction. The hardware and software system development environment has been set up. Most of the subsystem models, such as the digital power supply control and event timing systems, have been set up and are being tested with devices on schedule. The high-level physical application environment has been set up and undergone online testing of device control using MatLab with Accelerator Toolbox and a middle layer. A set of tools (e.g., configuration tools and an alarm handler) has been set up for the center's database. An enhanced distributed archive engine has been created to store data using native XML data type with XML schema for data storage. Various testing results of the control systems for SSRF equipment will be described in this paper.  
WPPA06 An Embedded EPICS Controller Based on Ethernet/Serial Box 328

  The control system of SSRF takes the Ethernet as backbone. All kinds of serial devices such as vacuum pumps are connected to Linux IOCs via a kind of Ethernet/serial box made by Moxa company. In the preresearch stage of SSRF, the old model of this Ethernet/serial box was only a simple Ethernet/serial protocol converter which was functioned by firmware. Aim to this, we have developed several kinds of EPICS device drivers based on NetDev for our serial devices. Recently, Moxa company has upgraded the converter by replacing old arm9 CPU with a more powerful Intel Xscale CPU. It supports Monta Vista Linux as its embedded OS, also cross-compiler is provided to make further development available. Since we have decided to use the new model of converter in our facility finally, we manage to port EPICS IOC core on Monta Vista Linux and implement the same function on the new converter as old one's to avoid modifying existent EPICS device driver. By these, the dedicated Linux IOC can be omitted and the whole system can be more efficient and expandable. Details of the necessary integration work and initial operation experience will be discussed in this paper.
