A digital transceiver unit of VHF active phased array radars T/R module was introduced.Distributed high speed D/A and A/D were invoked to generate RF transmission signal for every antenna high speed,and to sample echo signal of every antenna,thus both transmission waveform and echo signal of antenna units could be processed independently.All digital units were connected to center control computer with embedded Ethernet.This digital unit design has great flexibility in radar signal processing,and it is high performance,high scalability and low cost.

Key words:  VHF radar      Active phased array radar      Digital transceiver unit
