AbstractThis contribution describes the status and technical details of the SIRENA package, the software currently in development to perform the on board event energy reconstruction for the Athena calorimeter X-IFU. This on board processing will be done in the X-IFU DRE unit and it will consist in an initial triggering of event pulses followed by an analysis (with the SIRENA package) to determine the energy content of such events.The current algorithm used by SIRENA is the optimal filtering technique (also used by ASTRO-H processor) although some other algorithms are also being tested.Here we present these studies and some preliminary results about the energy resolution of the instrument based on simulations done with the SIXTE simulator (http://www.sternwarte.uni-erlangen.de/research/sixte/) in which SIRENA is integrated.
