FPGA and ARM based Ultra-Low Power Solution for Signal Processor and Image Processor for Ground Penetrating Radar


In conventional radar applications, signal processor and image processor are realized as separate individual cards. Handheld Ground Penetrating radar is a compact, ultra-low power battery operated system. This system is operating on a small battery for eight hours of continuous operation. So utmost care is required in developing every sub-system in terms of power consumption. This paper describes the design steps in realizing an ultra-low power signal processor and image processor card for handheld Ground Penetrating Radar on a single PCB.
