24 September 2012 Hyper Suprime-Cam: the control system
Author Affiliations +
We introduce the detail of the control system of Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) and its performance. Although it has almost 10 times as many CCDs (104) as existing camera (Suprime-Cam), it is controlled by the common user interface, the Subaru Observation Software System (SOSS) with the Gen2 implementation through the HSC local controller (OBCP). If we adopt parallel programming, the read-out time should be within 25 seconds including 18.6 seconds of readout time which is comparable to the current Suprime-Cam.
