Paper Abstract

A digital frequency multiplexing electronics building block has been developed for the NIKA (New IRAM KID Arrays) experience. It allows the real time monitoring of microwave kinetic inductance detectors (MKIDs) arrays used for mm-wave astronomy. This electronics can monitor simultaneously 400 pixels over a 500MHz bandwidth and requires only two coaxial cables for instrumenting such a large array. The chosen solution and the performance achieved are presented in this paper.
