SDR (Software-Defined Radio) has revolutionized electronic systems for a variety of applications including communications, data acquisition and signal processing.
In order to fully appreciate the benefits of Software Defined Radio, conventional analog receiver and transmitter systems will be compared to their digital counterparts, highlighting similarities and differences.
The inner workings of the Software Defined Radio will be explored with an in-depth description of the internal structure and the devices used. Finally, some actual board- and system-level implementations and available off-the-shelf SDR products and applications based on such products will be presented.
