Abstract: The Diamond Light Source (DLS) accelerator complex can be divided into three major components; a 3 GeV 561 m circumference storage ring, a 158.4 m circumference full-energy booster synchrotron and a 100 MeV pre-injector linac. This paper describes the design and presents commissioning results of the RF system for the booster synchrotron. Booster RF commissioning took place in late 2005 and early 2006 and involved the setting-into-operation of a 60 kW IOT amplifier, supplied by Thales Broadcast and Multimedia, a 5-cell copper cavity, manufactured by Accel Instruments, and a low-level RF system designed and built by Sincrotrone Trieste.
