The new LCLS-II facility at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is a significant addition to the LCLS-I FEL, designed to dramatically decrease data acquisition time by providing high repetition rate over a broad energy range. The new design consists of a CW superconducting linac with bunch repetition rates of up to one MHz and beam power of several hundred kilowatts. LCLS-II will retain a system architecture based on EPICS, and leverage existing LCLS-I designs where appropriate, while also implementing new technologies to meet the performance requirements of the new machine. A common platform based on ATCA has been designed to support the control and data acquisition systems that operate at 1 MHz. The LCLS-II timing system, beam position monitors, machine protection system, bunch length monitors (and others) are all built on this common platform. This talk will present an overview of LCLS-II, the common platform and the high performance subsystems it supports, as well as the mature controls subsystems based on LCLS-I designs.
