With the exponential growth in the ways and means by which people need to communicate – data communications, voice communications, video communications, broadcast messaging, command and control communications, emergency response communications, etc. – modifying radio devices easily and cost-effectively has become business-critical. Software-defined radio (SDR) technology brings the flexibility, cost efficiency, and power to drive communications forward, with wide-reaching benefits realized by service providers and product developers through to end-users. In the long term, software-defined radios are expected to become the dominant technology in radio communications.
This is a unique and comprehensive course on SDR. In this course you will learn about:
. Basics of a Software-defined Radio and its evolution from the basic radio
. Significant advantages of using SDR
. Various areas of application of SDR
. Core features that make SDR a very robust technology
. Disadvantages of using an SDR
. A wide array of the Signal Processing Devices
. Comparison of various DSP options to aid decisions on implementation
. Details of major signal processing architectures
. Types of receiver architectures including GPP, FPGA, etc
. SDR standardization tenets and SCA
. Various software-centric platforms used for SDRs including GNURadio, OSSIE, etc
. Learn the GR development flow and the front-end for software radio
. Various stages of the development flow
. Firmware development and software development
Whether you are a professional wanting to know more about SDR systems, or an entrepreneur or a technology developer exploring this as an opportunity, this course will equip you with all you need to know about SDR and its related developments.
