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.
