Array Interface Board

The Array interface board is 6U board in VME form factor which has an onboard FPGA. The board is used in interfacing with the antenna array in radar systems. The board is used for implementation of complex signal processing algorithms on FPGA. The board receives input signals and based on the command it decodes and generates signals for each element in the antenna array.

Array Interface Board

The Array interface board is 6U board in VME form factor which has an onboard FPGA. The board is used in interfacing with the antenna array in radar systems. The board is used for implementation of complex signal processing algorithms on FPGA. The board receives input signals and based on the command it decodes and generates signals for each element in the antenna array.

It is an integral part of Beam Steering Unit (BSU), which does the necessary computation and directs the beam in the desired direction.
