With the adoption of phased array feeds on telescopes such as the Australian Square Array Pathfinder comes problems in processing data coming from the array. One such problem is the calculation of beam weights for beam formers. A need has been identified for a fast matrix inversion algorithm capable of supporting these data rates. A hardware implementable algorithm addressing the matrix inversion problem will be presented along with its limitations and advantages. Several other algorithms were also tested for suitability with the results presented.
