  • Discusses practical aspects of SDR implementation
  • Covers software and hardware development paradigms suitable for development
  • Presents real-live examples of prototype and field radios as well as examples from commercial, military, and the aerospace industry

Software Defined Radio makes wireless communications easier, more efficient, and more reliable. This book bridges the gap between academic research and practical implementation. When beginning a project, practicing engineers, technical managers, and graduate students can save countless hours by considering the concepts presented in these pages. The author covers the myriad options and trade-offs available when selecting an appropriate hardware architecture. As demonstrated here, the choice between hardware- and software-centric architecture can mean the difference between meeting an aggressive schedule and bogging down in endless design iterations. Because of the author’s experience overseeing dozens of failed and successful developments, he is able to present many real-life examples. Some of the key concepts covered are:

  • Choosing the right architecture for the market – laboratory, military, or commercial
  • Hardware platforms – FPGAs, GPPs, specialized and hybrid devices
  • Standardization efforts to ensure interoperability and portability
  • State-of-the-art components for radio frequency, mixed-signal, and baseband processing

The text requires only minimal knowledge of wireless communications; whenever possible, qualitative arguments are used instead of equations. An appendix provides a quick overview of wireless communications and introduces most of the concepts the readers will need to take advantage of  the material. An essential introduction to SDR, this book is sure to be an invaluable addition to any technical bookshelf.
