Modern industrial process instrumentation systems like radar based flow meters demand for scalable modular hardware platforms to meet the requirements for integration in heterogeneous Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Recent advances in System on Chip (SoC) technology allow integration of multichannel frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar sensors with real-time signal processing capabilities and flexible reconfigurable communication interfaces in low-cost embedded systems. In this contribution a hardware platform for a three channel 80GHz FMCW correlation radar sensor for volume fraction and flow velocity measurements in industrial environments is presented. The system is based on a Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC running Linux with a scalable modular radar frontend interface and a reconfigurable signal processing integrated in the programmable logic (PL).
