Understand the RF and Digital Signal Processing Principles Driving Software-defined Radios!
Software-defined radio (SDR) technology is a configurable, low cost, and power efficient solution for multimode and multistandard wireless designs. This book describes software-defined radio concepts and design principles from the perspective of RF and digital signal processing as performed within this system. After an introductory overview of essential SDR concepts, this book examines signal modulation techniques, RF and digital system analysis and requirements, Nyquist and oversampled data conversion techniques, and multirate digital signal processing..

Software-defined radio (SDR) is the hottest area of RF/wireless design, and this title describes SDR concepts, theory, and design principles from the perspective of the signal processing (both on transmission and reception) performed by a SDR system. After an introductory overview of essential SDR concepts, this book examines waveform creation, analog signal processing, digital signal processing, data conversion, phase-locked loops, SDR algorithms, and SDR hardware design. The various trade-offs at each of these design stages are discussed in detail.
*Offers readers a powerful set of analytical and design tools
*Details real world designs
*Comprehensive coverage makes this a must have in the RF/Wireless industry
