An Introduction to the Software Defined Radio (SDR) Technology . Taewoon KIM. Future Wireless Communication. The increasing number of services and applications introduced various radio protocols. One device for many standards. The needs for SDR technology.
- Radio communication system where components that have typically been implemented in hardware (e.g. mixers, filters, amplifiers, modulators/demodulators, detectors. etc.) are instead implemented using software (Wikipedia)
- Radio in which some or all of the physical layer functions are software defined (SDR forum)
Multi-mode and multi-standards communication platform!!
Software Defined Radio
prototyping – Time to market
