Experiences in the co-design of software and hardware elements in a SDR platform.
In: SDR 08 Technical Conference and Product Exposition, 26th -30th October 08, Washington, D.C..
The Center for Telecommunications Value-Chain Research
(CTVR) has developed an integrated software radio platform
that combines a reconfigurable hardware radio platform,
called NUIM SDR transceiver, and a modular software
radio framework, called Implementing Radio in Software
(IRIS). This paper outlines the design challenges in
achieving the integration between these two systems, and
also presents experimental results. The test consists of
transmitting an image file using DQPSK modulation with
IRIS and the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP)
RF front-end at 2.41GHz, and receiving it with IRIS and the
NUIM SDR transceiver. The integrated software radio platform
presented in this paper enables new research opportunities
testing real-world environments and developing cognitive
radios for dynamic spectrum access techniques.
