Abstract: The Black Board SelfCal (BBS) system is designed as the final processing system to carry out the calibration of LOFAR in an efficient way1. In this paper we give a brief description of its architectural and software design including its distributed computing approach. A confusion limited deep all sky image (from 38-62 MHz) by calibrating LOFAR test data with the BBS suite is shown as a sample result. The present status and future directions of development of BBS suite are also touched upon.
