NIKEL_AMC: readout electronics for the NIKA2 experiment

Abstract : The New Iram Kid Arrays-2 (NIKA2) instrument, dedicated to mm-wave astronomy, uses microwave kinetic inductance detectors (KID) as sensors. The three arrays installed in the camera feature a total of 3300 KID. To instrument these detectors, a specifically designed electronics, composed of 20 readout boards and hosted in three microTCA crates, has been developed. The implemented solution and the achieved performances are presented in this paper.
