  The construction of a new 3 GeV Light Source is in progress. The 3 GeV Light Source will be designed a compact and stable Linac based on the C-band accelerator developed by SACLA. Furthermore, we have an upgrade project of SPring-8 that we call SPring-8-II. We adopted EtherCAT technology as a network fieldbus for the next-generation control system. Currently, as the control systems using EtherCAT, a low-level RF system and a new standard in-vacuum undulator system are running at the SPring-8 storage ring. Additionally, it is necessary to upgrade a high-power RF (HPRF) system at SACLA and a magnet power supply system. The current HPRF system consists of a VME and four PLCs. These PLCs are connected by an optical FA-Link that had been discontinued. Therefore, we will construct a new HPRF system that is replaced a VME with MTCA.4 and is used EtherCAT as a fieldbus. A fieldbus of a magnet power supply system will be replaced an old optical link with EtherCAT. The new systems will be verified into a prototype accelerator for the 3 GeV Light Source in SPring-8 site. The control systems using EtherCAT will be installed into the 3 GeV Light Source and SPring-8-II.
