Oral Low Level RF Workshop 2022 Open Hw-Fw-Sw


Javier Serrano (CERN)


In this short introduction, I will describe our 15-year experience in CERN's control group sharing hardware, gateware, firmware and software under an open-source paradigm. This includes collaboration with commercial companies and other institutes. I will also mention the interaction with Knowledge and Technology Transfer paradigms based on "maximising impact", which may sometimes result in the choice of a proprietary dissemination strategy. I will conclude with some thoughts on how these two practices can be made to work together and reinforce each other, hoping to trigger comments and questions so we can have an interesting discussion session.
