AB  - The Heidelberg Ion Therapy Center HIT is in clinical operation since 2009. The accelerator complex consists of a linear accelerator and a synchrotron to provide carbon ions and protons for clinical use as well as helium and oxygen ions. The analog LLRF system for the linac should be replaced after more than 10 years of continuous operation. In its life-time the LLRF caused no interruption of the clinical operation with a downtime of more than 15 minutes. In order to keep the reliability in the next 10 years at least as high, a new digital LLRF system is planned. Further difficulties for the installation of a new system are due to the clinical full time usage of the accelerator and the short maintenance slots of only two days in series.
