We are upgrading the BPM processors in the SPEAR3 accelerator complex as several of the existing systems have reached end of life. To reduce the resources required for maintenance we have evaluated and installed several commercial BPM processors from the SPARK series of Libera/Instrumentation Technologies. In SPEAR3 we evaluated the SPARK-ERXR turn-by-turn BPM processor as a replacement to the in-house developed/commercially built Echotek processors that are used for a range of accelerator physics studies. We show measurements of the orbit dynamics with another SPARK-ERXR in the booster synchrotron from beam injection up to ejection. We have further evaluated a Spark-EL in the transport lines to replace the in-house built uTCA-based single-pass BPM processors. In this paper we show measurements and discuss our experience with the Libera SPARK series of BPM processors and comment on the software integration.
