The new MRF event timing system is one of the most important components to maintain the reliable and stable operation of the SuperKEKB project. This system is utilized to distribute high precision level timing signals and accompanying control instructions to synchronize different subsystems and machines. Event generator (EVG) generates signals of different beam modes every 50 Hz pulse which contains several event codes while Event receivers (EVR) receives them and output signals to dedicated devices all over the installation. To certain these events are consistent during the distribution, an event fault diagnosis system is essentially needed. An EVR based event timing diagnostic system is thus developed by modifying the driver support module to provide a log system of persistent event data as well as comparing the received event codes with the beam injector pattern, detecting the event timing interval fault and notifying the results by email every day. Then, we are able to locate the fault, analyze the data, fix bugs or replace hardware and resume accelerator operation quickly.

  About one hundred channels of pulsed magnet power supply control system were installed in 2017 in KEK electron positron LINAC to realize pulse-to-pulse control of output current every 20 ms. The control system of a group of eight channels totally consists of commercially available devices, namely a PC (Windows 8.1), a PXIe crate and several PXIe boards such as ADC, DAC communication and timing. The software is written with LabVIEW. EPICS channel access protocol is used to communicate with OPI over standard Ethernet network. Depending on the destination of the beam, there are ten beam modes. The software is able to keep parameters for each mode independently, which makes it possible for us to operate one LINAC as if it were ten virtual LINACs. Even Software feedback to compensate small drift of output current is available for each mode independently. During two years of operation, there were no significant problem. Although the Windows is not a real-time OS, dropping rate of the trigger coming every 20 ms is less than a ppm. Rebooting of the PC or software is necessary only a few times in a year.
