Development of a MKID Camera for APEX

  • Based on our reconfigurable FPGA spectrometer technology, we have developed a read-out system, operating in the frequency domain, for arrays of Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (MKIDs). The readout consists of a combination of two digital boards: A programmable DAC-/FPGA-board (tone-generator) to stimulate the MKIDs detectors and an ADC-/FPGA-unit to analyze the detectors response. Laboratory measurement show no deterioration of the noise performance compared to low noise analog mixing. Thus, this technique allows capturing several hundreds of detector signals with just one pair of coaxial cables.
