  abstract     = {{CEA Saclay Irfu is in charge of an important part of the control system of the SARAF LINAC accelerator based at Soreq (Israel). This includes, among other, the control of the timing system (synchronization and timestamping). CEA has already installed and uses successfully the timing distribution with MRF on test benches for ESS or IPHI, so it has been decided to use the same technologies. The reference frequency will be distributed along the accelerator by a master oscillator Wenzel and the UTC time will be based on a Meridian II GPS, these 2 devices will be connected to the Event Master (EVM) card which is the main element of the timing system architecture. Through an optical fiber network, the MRF timing system allows to distribute downstream and upstream events with a µs propagation time. Currently, we are working on development in order to also use it for the machine protection system of the accelerator. In this paper, hardware, timing architecture, software developments and tests will be presented.}},
