Our group, the Center for Astronomy Signal Processing and Electronics Research (CASPER), seeks to speed the development of radio astronomy signal processing instrumentation by designing and demonstrating a scalable, upgradeable, FPGA-based computing platform and software design methodology that targets a range of realtime radio telescope signal processing applications. This project relies on a small number of modular, connectible hardware components and open-source signal processing libraries… CONTINUE READING
