AMD on Board the World’s Largest Radio Telescope

CSIRO Powered by Xilinx Alveo U55C Cards Case Study

Unlocking the Mysteries of the Universe

When Australia’s CSIRO, the world’s largest radio astronomy antenna array, needed a way to perform end-to-end signal packet processing in real-time, they turned to AMD.

Powered by Alveo U55C accelerator cards to perform end-to-end signal packet processing on incoming data, the telescope’s correlator and beamforming system manages a 15Tbps continuous, real-time data flow.

Download this case study to learn how CSIRO is utilizing the U55C to help researchers to build a complete picture of the universe, and hopefully lead to new discoveries, while providing a significant increase in performance, while reducing both cost, area, and power.
