Abstract
This paper summarizes the performance of all the 73 ALMA band 10 cartridges in terms of noise performance and/or optical efficiencies compared to the required ALMA specifications. In particular, the measured optical performance is compared with the results of novel statistical Monte Carlo analyses carried out before receiver production. Some of the technical difficulties encountered during production are briefly described. Finally, some of the first light results of the first receivers used in Chile are presented.
