Abstract: The Diamond Transverse Multibunch Feedback System (TMBF) comprises an in-house designed and built analogue frontend to select and condition the position signals for each bunch. This is combined with the Libera Bunch- by-Bunch system to digitise the signal and perform the relevant calculations before driving the output stripline kickers. As the electronics are based on an FPGA this has allowed us to implement several features in addition to the basic feedback calculations. We report on improvements to both the analogue and digital parts of the TMBF system, along with recent achievements in using the system for instability mode stabilisation and for tune measurement. Also we discuss the potential of the system and additional functionality we plan on introducing in the near future.
