This paper presents the development of Virtex5, Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) FPGA based data acquisition and analysis system. The system consists of data sampling and acquisition followed by Fast Fourier Transform Processor. The output Transformed data is read on host PC via RS232 for plotting and analysis. 'C' and MATLAB codes are developed for testing and verification and the FPGA subsystems are developed in VHDL. Data acquisition and analysis is a very common practice in the field of communication. Frequency analysis plays an important role in communication system design. Fourier transform is the most commonly used technique to convert time domain signal to frequency domain.
