Abstract [en]

The Low Frequency Receiver (LFR) is one of the main subsystems of the Radio and Plasma Wave (RPW) experiment that we wish to submit in response to a possible Announcement of Opportunity for the Solar Orbiter payload. It will be connected to two different sensor units: an electric antenna unit and a magnetic search coil unit that will be optimized to perform both quasi-DC and high frequency measurements. The LFR is dedicated to analyse and process onboard the low frequency signals from a fraction of a Hertz up to -10 kHz, covering in situ measurements of the electromagnetic waves of the solar wind and extended corona. Due to the telemetry constraints different strategies for analysing and transmitting the data have to be defined, implying different onboard working modes. The design and the technological characteristics of the LFR are presented.
