Abstract

Microwave kinetic inductance detectors have a variety of potential applications in astronomical observations. We built a data acquisition system for kinetic inductance detectors combining a dedicated analog board and a commercially available digital board to meet the requirements of astronomical measurements, such as observation of the cosmic microwave background. This paper reports the status of the development of the data acquisition system. We have already achieved simultaneous readout through 120 channels using a direct down-conversion method to decode the signal. A variety of software has been developed and tested using the functionalities of the system and actual detectors.
