Controlling stored beams in particle accelerator requires specially designed RF signals, such as needed for spill control via transverse excitation. The software-defined radio (SDR) technology is adopted as a low cost, yet highly flexible setup to generate such signals in the kHz to MHz regime. A feedback system is build using a combination of digital signal processing with GNU Radio and RF...
