    Abstract

    The Second Generation Pulsar Machine (PuMa- II) is under development for the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope. This is a summary of th e system design and architecture. We show that state of the art pulsar research is possible with commercially available hardware components. This approach obviates the need to develop specialized custom hardware, decreasing project cost and time. PuMa-II w ill increase the sensitivity by a factor of 2 to 4, depending on the mode of operation. The project is an interesting combination of technology, computational astrophysics and astronomy. It is expected that the prototype to be tested by end 2004 will deliver excellent results. Once completed PuMa-II offers exciting possibilities in pulsar studies using the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope.
