Fringe technique is preferred to edge technique of wind measurement in troposphere for a direct-detect Doppler wind lidar. However, most fringe-technique based Doppler lidar systems have been developed to date are based on conventional Fabry-perot interferometer. The purpose of this paper is to introduce our development of fringe-technique lidar based on Fizeau interferometer in which the signal can be detected more conveniently using commercial linear detector. The pre-development of the lidar system is described including interferometer's optimum design, the frequency stabilization of Fizeau interferometer and the choice of multi-anode detector. In additional, the wind error of the system is simulated with taking account of Rayleigh noise. Results shows that the wind error can be less than 0.56m/s under 5 km with 30s integral time.
