8th MicroTCA Workshop for Industry and Research at DESY

With more than 190 participants from 17 countries, the 8th MicroTCA Workshop for Industry and Research has again been the highlight of the year for MicroTCA developers, suppliers and users alike.
The now well-known format of the event included seven sessions with 40 short presentations (including several keynotes on topics of general interest), an industry exhibition, a comprehensive pre-workshop program as well as tours of DESY and a conference dinner on the MS Hanseatic.
Noteworthy progress has been reported on the Future of MicroTCA. A working group is now being established under the auspices of PICMG with a view to providing more power and increasing internal system bandwidth.
The workshop also saw several contributions from China, where this year the first major MicroTCA event sparked a lot of interest. All presentations can be downloaded from our archive ( The next workshop will take place on December 1-3, 2020.

International Conference on Accelerator and Large Experimental Physics Control Systems (ICALEPCS)

From 05 - 11 October 2019, this conference takes place in Brooklyn, NY, USA.

The MicroTCA Technology Lab will present latest developments at the industrial exhibition at a joint booth with N.A.T.

A comprehensive pre-workshop program on MicroTCA provided an update on the current devlopment of the standard and its multiple applications at facilities around the world:

  • 25 years of open PICMG standards: benefits for industry and research
  • MicroTCA.4 status and developments
  • MicroTCA management
  • MicroTCA activities in KEK and J-PARC
  • MicroTCA at XFEL / DESY
  • Open Source Universal PCIe Driver for MicroTCA.
  • FPGA developments in MicroTCA
  • MTCA.4 in CERN Accelerators

Photon Science User Meeting - satellite meeting 2019

The MicroTCA Technology Lab organized a Satellite Meeting at the Photon Science Users' Meeting.

This Satellite Meeting informed Photon Science users and beamline scientists about the electronics standard MicroTCA, which has been established as a technology of choice for beam control and beam diagnostics in many facilities around the world.

Since this standard is also applicable to equipment for beam experiments (for example in fast data acquisition systems) the speakers introduced this new community to the general concept and the main advantages of MicroTCA in comparison to other standards.
