Paper Abstract

The development status of a prototype readout module for Hyper Suprime-Cam, a next-generation prime-focus camera for the 8.2 m Subaru Telescope, is presented. The camera has a field of view 1.5° in diameter, and produces 2.1 Gbyte of data per exposure. The module transfers the data to computers of a data acquisition system using TCP/IP and Gigabit Ethernet. We have measured the performance of data processing and data transfer of the developed module. The results indicated sufficient performance to read data from all CCDs within the required readout time.
