Tevatron is a proton anti-proton accelerator collider operating at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
The machine is currently delivering beam for the CDF and D0 experiments, which expect increasing luminosity
until the conclusion of Run II, planned for 2009. The Laboratory defined a plan for achieving higher luminosi
ty, and one of the tasks is the upgrade of the accelerator's beam position monitor (BPM). The Tevatron was bu
ilt during the early eighties and some of its control systems, including the BPMs, are still the original one
s. This paper describes the front-end software, from the requirements to the implementation, and the underlyi
ng hardware setup. The front-end software designed is presented, e emphasizing its modularity and reusability
, allowing it to be applied to other Fermilab machines.
