A universal data acquisition system supporting toroids, DCCTs, Faraday cups, srapers and other types of instru-mentation has been developed for reporting beam inten-sity measurements to the Fermilab Accelerator Controls System (ACNet). Instances of this front end, supporting dozens of intensity monitor devices have been deployed throughout the Fermilab accelerator complex in the Main Injector, Recycler, Fermilab Accelerator Science and Technology (FAST) facility and the PIP-II Injector Exper-iment (PXIE). Each front end consists of a VME chassis containing a single board computer (SBC), timing and clock module and one or more 8 to 12-channel digitizer modules. The digitizer modules are based on a Cyclone III FPGA with firmware developed in-house allowing a wide range of flexibility and digital signal processing capability. The front end data acquisition software adds a list of new features to the previous generation allowing users to: take beam intensity measurements at custom points in the acceleration cycle, access waveform data, control machine protection system (MPS) parameters and calculate beam energy loss.
