AB  - We developed a timing synchronization system for beam injections from the linac of the X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL), SACLA, to the current SPring-8 storage ring. This injection scheme is beneficial for the next upgraded ring, SPring-8-II, where low emittance injection beams is required. The developed timing system aims at synchronizing the timing between the RF frequencies of the two accelerators which do not have a common subharmonic frequency. An important point is to keep the high performance of the current timing system which provides stable XFEL operation at SACLA. For this purpose, we designed and constructed a MicroTCA.4 system comprised of a high-speed ADC and an RF front-end for the synchronization. The RF signal of SACLA is digitized by the ADC whose clock is synchronized to SPring-8. A digital down-converter in the FPGA on the ADC module gives the phase difference instantaneously and a feedback logic applies a frequency modulation (FM) to the master oscillator of SACLA so as to synchronize SACLA with SPring-8. A bench test result showed that the timing jitter between the two frequency at injection timing was 1.2 ps rms, which was sufficient for the required value of 3 ps rms for the beam injection to the ring. In this presentation, we report an overview of the synchronization system, details of the developed electronics and the system performance obtained by a beam injection experiment from SACLA to SPring-8.
