Existing radio receivers have a very low noise temperature. To further increase the observation speed, the new generation of radio receivers use a multi-beam focal plane array (FPA) together with wide bandwidth. In this article, we present the front-end and cryogenic design of the 7-beam FPA double linear polarization receiver for the 64-m primary focus of the Sardinia Radio Telescope. At the end of this article, we show the simulated performances of the front-end receiver and the measurements of the down-conversion section.
