Bureau, C. Marcella Carollo, Roger L. Davies, Eric Emsellem, Harald Kuntschner, Reynier F. Peletier, E.K. Verolme and P. Tim de Zeeuw Accepted 2001 April 23. Received 2001 April 23; in original form 2000 November 13 ABSTRACT A new integral-field spectrograph, SAURON, is described. It is based on the TIGER principle, and uses a lenslet array. SAURON has a large field of view and high throughput, and allows simultaneous sky subtraction. Its design is optimized for studies of the stellar kinematics, gas kinematics, and line-strength distributions of nearby early-type galaxies. The instrument design and specifications are described, as well as the extensive analysis software which was developed to obtain fully calibrated spectra, and the associated kinematic and line-strength measurements. A companion paper will report on the first results obtained with SAURON on the William Herschel Telescope. Keywords: instrumentation: spectrographs - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: individual: NGC 3377 - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics - galaxies: spiral - galaxies: stellar content.
