This paper describes the electronics subsystem of a transportable demonstration closed loop fiber optic gyroscope. A detailed description is given of the in-house-built circuits such as the photodetector amplifier, phase sensitive detector, dither generator, high speed 32-bit counter and the single board computer interface for data acquisition and control. A sample gyro drift run is presented.
