  The Institute for Applied Physics (IAP) of Goethe University Frankfurt has a long history in developing DTL-cavities and further essential components of particle accelerators from design and simulation up to tuning and final testing. In recent times, the development of beam diagnostic components for the hadron accelerator projects has become increasingly important. Bevatech is designing and setting up linear accelerators, RF and vacuum technology for research laboratories and enterprises worldwide. In a joint effort a simple, efficient and mobile beam position monitor (BPM) test bench has been developed and will be further improved for future tests and the calibration of beam position monitors. It is fully automated using single-board computers and microcontrollers to obtain the essential calibration data like electrical offset, button sensitivity and the 2D response map. In addition, initial tests with the implementation and evaluation of the Libera signal processing units Single Pass H and Spark were promising.
