Abstract: We describe the development of firmware to support Longitudinal Bunch by Bunch Feedback at Diamond Light source. As well as feedback, the system supports complex experiments and the capture of detailed electron beam diagnostics. In this paper we describe the firmware development and some details of the processing chain. We focus on some of the challenges of FPGA development from the perspective of a software engineer.
