Enabling Technologies for Future Particle Accelerators

Abstract: There is currently a significant need for better engineering of technologies for use with particle accelerators. Compact accelerators provide one of the few paths to significant electronics miniaturization, as well as benefits for medical treatment. I will present current development techniques and technologies available for low-level RF controls and hardware and provide an path for future development.
