SYNOPSIS

Software Defined Radio (SDR) refers to wireless communication in which the transmitter modulation is generated or defined by a computer. The receiver then also uses a computer to recover the signal intelligence. The behaviour of a communication system can be modified by simply changing its software. In this model, one moves to the software the task to set radio behaviour, leaving to hardware only the implementation of RF front-end. Thus, the radio is no longer static, defined by their circuits and becomes a dynamic element, which may change their operating characteristics, such as bandwidth, modulation, coding rate, even modified during runtime according to software configuration.

SDR is useful in a wide range of areas within wireless systems. The primary goal of SDR is to replace as many analog components and hardwired digital VLSI devices of the transceiver as possible with programmable devices. These include the air interface, modulation and coding schemes, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and digital-to-analog converter (DAC).

Traditional hardware-based radio devices limit cross-functionality and can only be modified through physical intervention. This results in higher production costs and minimal flexibility in supporting multiple waveform standards. By contrast, software defined radio technology provides an efficient and comparatively inexpensive solution to this problem, allowing multi-mode, multi-band and/or multi-functional wireless devices that can be enhanced using software upgrades.

This Talk will share with audience definition of Software-defined radio (SDR), concepts, advantages, design and architecture of Software Defined Radio (SDR).
