TECH BRIEFING: The Software Defined Radio Revolution

Software Radio has come a long way in the last 15 years. This talk will cover where we’ve come from, where we are, and where we’re going, from the personal perspective of the speaker. We’ll discuss what has and has not worked, what challenges remain ahead.

Specific topics will include:
- Challenges in hardware for Software Radio, and a discussion of the state of the art in RF frontends and data converters
- The evolution of the various processing paradigms used in software radio (GPP, GPU, DSP, and FPGA)
- What problems we thought would be solved by now
- The basic economics of software radios in volume production
