WorldFIP is a deterministic rad-tol fieldbus used at CERN's
LHC for a variety of control systems.
Cryogenics, Power Converters, Beam Instrumentation and other critical
systems are using WorldFIP for the exchange of data between their sensors and actuators and the control and supervision level.
With Alstom phasing out WorldFIP support in
2009, it was decided to insource this technology at CERN. The insourcing project includes different hardware designs as an FPGA agent, FMC mezzanine cards for use as master or agent, while for the master a full gateware and software stack has been written with Linux driver support.
