Software-defined radio (SDR) offers an alternative design approach compared to traditional radio frequency (RF) design techniques. Older, conventional systems could only implement fixed functions and encompass a limited feature set. By taking advantage of flexible RF front-ends and high-performance digital hardware, developers can exploit novel techniques to squeeze more capacity out of the wireless spectrum and build highly differentiated systems. Access to an ecosystem of hardware and software, including open-source libraries, means it is easier than ever to gain experience in SDR design today.
The whitepaper you can download below explores how SDR enables engineers to build radios that can react more readily to interference, employ more sophisticated channel-coding schemes to increase data rates, and take advantage of other advanced RF technologies.
