to summarise (P837)
- The HI Parkes Swinburne Recorder (HIPSR) has been developed by a collaboration of: the Pulsar
Group of the Swinburne University, Melbourne; ICRAR University of Western
Australia, Perth; University of Oxford; and CASS. HIPSR is a new
reconfigurable digital backend for the Parkes multibeam receiver with a
maximum of 13 IFs, dual polarisation. HIPSR is capable of running many
different firmware modes, so can be used for both high resolution, wide
bandwidth spectral-line observations, and high time resolution pulsar
observations. As of writing, there is only one mode of operations
supported: this is BPSR high time resolution pulsar modes, used in the
HTRU survey. HISPEC is a 8192 channel, 400 MHz bandwidth
spectrometer for HI observations and is currently not supported. -
Please contact Ettore Carretti for more information.
