Abstract: A new magnet power supply controller is currently being designed for Diamond Light Source. The design uses digital regulation implemented in an FPGA. An embedded ARM processor is used to provide integration with the supervisory control system. Interfaces are also provided for integration with the fast orbit feed back system and for synchronous control of multiple supplies. Details of the architecture and progress in the realization will be presented.
