Agenda

General Updates

  • BOF Files
    • Arindam has left for a new job at Google, so Jason and Randy will take over BOF file builds
    • Breakthrough Listen needs to use the c1500x4096 mode, so this is now highest priority
      • Randy expects this to be a challenging build
  • Manager/software
    • Breakthrough Listen will be streaming data to their own machines, and will be using all 8 VEGAS roach boards in coherent mode
      • This may require a new Manager mode
      • GUPPI uses a single manager and process on beef to communicate with GPUs, but VPM should emulate DIBAS
      • Will need two daq servers running on an HPC * Ray working on HBW spectral line modes for Matrix and will build out pulsar modes from there * Ryan will begin writing MR for config tool changes, with the goal of beginning modifications in Sept. * Focus on VPM alone, then add support for dual backend operation with GUPPI
