Abstract: Third generation Synchrotron Light Sources with vertical beam sizes down to few microns require beam resolutions on the submicron level. Study of different Beam Position Monitors (BPM) geometries has been done to reach such tight requirements. The used Matlab Graphical User Interface (GUI) is based on the simulation of a charged particle inside a selectable vacuum chamber type, computing the induced signal that it produces on the button feedthroughs. Needed parameters for the computation are the button electrode dimensions, vacuum chamber profile, electron beam current and measurement bandwidth. Output results from the GUI are the induced power on the feedthroughs, BPM sensitivity and intrinsic resolution of the analyzed geometry. As sensitivity and resolution are BPM geometry dependent terms, the Matlab GUI turned out to be an easy and fast way for first step geometry analysis.
