The baseline concept of LISA had been developed within an industrial investigation by Astrium/EADS and is being reviewed since 2005 in an ongoing formulation phase. One of the most important key technology development issues remains the demonstration of the interferometric readout of the main science measurement. This includes the hardware development of an appropriate Phase Measurement System (PMS). We present the status of our work concerning the design and implementation of a LISA-like PMS with particular emphasis on the hardware development based on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA's) as main technology platform and we report on our first results demonstrating the performance of the PMS with synthetic signals.
