Abstract
HYPRES proposes to develop an expert system to automate operation of its advanced digital-RF receivers (ADRs). In Phase I, the focus will be on two classes of mature superconductor chips that are present in all ADRs built to date: ADCs with digital decimation filters (DDFs) and ADCs with deserializers. An algorithm for automatic set-up and periodic calibration of ADRs will be developed by a team of experts in superconductor circuits and ADR systems working closely with a team experienced in automation of superconductor integrated circuit (IC) testing. In addition, automation of more advanced versions with complex multi-input ADC chips and MCMs will be investigated to facilitate development of products in the next spiral. In Phase II, the goal is to develop and demonstrate an ADR unit, first at HYPRES and then in a Government laboratory selected by ONR, which does not require human interaction. In Phase III, a set of such units will undergo operational testing in the field.
