Speaker Jeffrey Hodgson (Radio Science Group, KASI)
Abstract In this informal presentation, I will summarise my recent trip to the 7th International VLBI Technology Workshop in Krabi, Thailand. The main topics of discussion were radio backend development, correlator development and how GPUs can be used for this. In particular, there was much discussion about the concept of a universal backend, which would have common core components across all radio telescopes, including VLBI dishes, and upcoming instruments such as MeerKAT and ASKAP. The ultimate aim will be to develop a core specification for which all radio development groups can contribute.
Remarks This talk will be given in English.
