Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to present the architecture of a very efficient and reliable Instrument Data Processing Unit (IDPU) for the Spectrometer/Telescope for Imaging X-rays (STIX) scientific instrument made in the frame of ESA Solar Orbiter mission. The IDPU was designed, manufactured and delivered by CBK. Afterward, it was integrated with the STIX instrument and currently is waiting for a launch that is foreseen in February 2020. The paper presents the history, problems and using solutions that were implemented while working on the unit. Finally, the paper discusses the lessons learned as seen from a time perspective.
