Software-defined radio (SDR) has become a common approach to rapid prototyping and deployment of communications equipment. It allows engineers to quickly move from algorithm development to functional prototype, using small form-factor commercial hardware. This course will explore modern SDR technology and implementation techniques. Students will design and implement common radio functions using field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and software frameworks. During the semester, we progress from hardware considerations and basic signal processing techniques to synchronization, digital modulation, and cognitive radio. We finish with a final semester project combining multiple cognitive radio concepts.

Course Prerequisite(s)

EN.525.638 Introduction to Wireless Technology or EN.525.616 Communication Systems Engineering; EN.525.627 Digital Signal Processing; and working knowledge of MATLAB and Simulink.
