SKA CSP Low.CBF dPDR succesfully passed

Submitter: Andre Gunst
Description: At the 23rd and 24th of February 2016 the dPDR was held for the CSP (Central Signal Processor) Low.CBF (Low Correlator and Beam Former) system in SKA (Square Kilometre Array). The following documents were tabled for the dPDR:
  • detailled design document
  • prototyping plan
  • requirements document
    The review panel requested a number of presentations to be given during the review about the system, signal processing, power, cooling and traceability of requirements. Furthermore the major issues from the Observation Action Register (OAR) have been discussed.

    The Low.CBF team (ASTRON, CSIRO and NZA) has put a lot of effort into the delta PDR preparations, working under severe time constraints. However the hard work of the recently formed team (about half a year ago) was rewarded with success. Unfortunately, we cannot enjoy this moment for too long, and take a well-deserved rest, since we have to ramp up our efforts again to achieve our next internal milestone towards the Critical Design Review (CDR).

    The photo shows the panel members and part of the Low.CBF team participating in the review. They include former colleagues Grant Hampson (now at CSIRO) and Andre van Es (now at SKA Office).
