Abstract
Heterodyne Multibeam receivers will boost the mapping performances of millimeter and submillimeter telescopes. The IRAM 30 m telescope will be equipped with an 18 channel SIS receiver for frequencies between 210 to 270 GHz. In this paper we discus the receiver system design and give arguments for the specific technological choices and their impacts on various observing modes. The electrical and cryogenic design of the receiver is presented and we discuss the theoretical and experimental performance of the receiver optics.
