19-20 September 2010

Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie
Bonn / Germany



This meeting was sponsored by the MPIfR & RadioNet-FP7.

The meeting was aimed at bringing together scientists and receiver engineers who are working in the field of receiver developments of more than a handful feeds. We will review the scientific case for large spectroscopic MMIC arrays on large telescopes. The hardware requirements for effective use of such arrays, including telescope optics, array receivers, and digital back-ends will also be reviewed.

The workshop should set the stage for sharing the diverse and high-level expertise within the Radio Astronomy Institutes. It should help isolate common technical challenges and pre-existing solutions, encourage collaboration and collaborative projects.
