Paper Abstract

We present the development status of the Pulse Shape Processor (PSP), which is the on-board digital electronics responsible for the signal processing of the X-ray microcalorimeter spectrometer instrument (the Soft X-ray Spectrometer; SXS) for the ASTRO-H satellite planned to be launched in 2014. We finished the design and fabrication for the engineering model, and are currently undertaking a series of performance verification and environmental tests. In this report, we summarize the results obtained in a part of the tests completed in the first half of this year.
