Abstract
A fast digital signal processor has been designed and built for survey and some observations of pulsars. The processor obtains spectral info rmation over a bandwidth of 16 MHz (256 channels) every 256 musecs. We describe the design of this processor and present some test observati ons made with the Ooty Radio Telescope.
