Book Description :

The availability of the RTL-SDR device for less than $20 brings software defined radio (SDR) to the home and work desktops of EE students, professional engineers and the maker community. The RTL-SDR can be used to acquire and sample RF (radio frequency) signals transmitted in the frequency range 25MHz to 1.75GHz, and the MATLAB and Simulink environment can be used to develop receivers using first principles DSP (digital signal processing) algorithms. Signals that the RTL-SDR hardware can receive include: FM radio, UHF band signals, ISM signals, GSM, 3G and LTE mobile radio, GPS and satellite signals, and any that the reader can (legally) transmit of course! In this book we introduce readers to SDR methods by viewing and analysing downconverted RF signals in the time and frequency domains, and then provide extensive DSP enabled SDR design exercises which the reader can learn from. The hands-on SDR design examples begin with simple AM and FM receivers, and move on to the more challenging aspects of PHY layer DSP, where receive filter chains, real-time channelisers, and advanced concepts such as carrier synchronisers, digital PLL designs and QPSK timing and phase synchronisers are implemented. In the book we will also show how the RTL-SDR can be used with SDR transmitters to develop complete communication systems, capable of transmitting payloads such as simple text strings, images and audio across the lab desktop.

Book Description :

Software defined radio (SDR) is one of the most important topics of research, and indeed development, in the area of mobile and personal communications. SDR is viewed as an enabler of global roaming and as a unique platform for the rapid introduction of new services into existing live networks. It therefore promises mobile communication networks a major increase in flexibility and capability. SDR brings together two key technologies of the last decade - digital radio and downloadable software. It encompasses not only reconfiguration of the air interface parameters of handset and basestation products but also the whole mobile network, to facilitate the dynamic introduction of new functionality and mass-customised applications to the user's terminal, post-purchase. This edited book, contributed by internationally respected researchers and industry practitioners, describes the current technological status of radio frequency design, data conversion, reconfigurable signal processing hardware, and software issues at all levels of the protocol stack and network. The book provides a holistic treatment of SDR addressing the full breadth of relevant technologies - radio frequency design, signal processing and software - at all levels. As such it provides a solid grounding for a new generation of wireless engineers for whom radio design in future will assume dynamic flexibility as a given. In particular it explores * The unique demands of SDR upon the RF subsystem and their implications for front end design methodologies * The recent concepts of the 'digital front end' and 'parametrization' * The role and key influence of data conversion technologies and devices within software radio, essential to robust product design * The evolution of signal processing technologies, describing new architectural approaches * Requirements and options for software download * Advances in 'soft' protocols and 'on-the-fly' software reconfiguration * Management of terminal reconfiguration and its network implications * The concepts of the waveform description language The book also includes coverage of * Potential breakthrough technologies, such as superconducting RSFQ technology and the possible future role of MEMS in RF circuitry * Competing approaches, eg all-software radios implemented on commodity computing vs advanced processing architectures that dynamically optimise their configuration to match the algorithm requirements at a point in time The book opens with an introductory chapter by Stephen Blust, Chair of the ITU-R WP8F Committee and Chair of the SDR Forum presenting a framework for SDR, in terms of definitions, evolutionary perspectives, introductory timescales and regulation. Suitable for today's engineers, technical staff and researchers within the wireless industry, the book will also appeal to marketing and commercial managers who need to understand the basics and potential of the technology for future product development. Its balance of industrial and academic contributors also makes it suitable as a text for graduate and post-graduate courses aiming to prepare the next generation of wireless engineers.

Book Description :

Next-generation mobile communications are likely to employ different techniques and standards. The implementation in software of as many receiver functionalities as possible appears to be the most effective solution for coping with the multiplicity of communications alternatives. The concept of software radio, dating back to 1991, originally attracted commercial interest owing to the possibility that transmission layer functions could be fully software-defined. The same approach can be extended to protocols of the higher layers too, thus conceiving a programmable hardware to implement the functionalities of several layers of protocols by resident software or software downloaded from the network. Consisting of selected technical contributions to the Workshop on "Software Radio", this volume deals with state-of-the-art surveys of the enabling technologies and the prospective services of software radio implementations for future mobile communications. Original and state-of-the-art research and development is presented in fields such as: - Software radio for universal wireless internet access - Software radio for multimedia communications - Software radio architecture - Network architecture, protocols and services - Software radio technology towards pervasive appliance. This volume on software radio is a valuable reference for both researchers and telecommunications professionals.

Book Description :

Indoor Wi-Fi positioning systems (WPS) are useful for location determination and rely upon the use of existing Wi-Fi hotspot. These systems are advantageous to Global Positioning System (GPS), another popular location positioning system, when GPS is inadequate due to various causes including multi-path and signal blockage. WPS systems measure intensity of the received signal and also applying "fingerprinting" techniques to determine location; however, these systems are only as accurate as the number of locations and number of concurrently received signals from access points that have been entered into a database. In addition, fluctuations in signals due to changes in environment can also have a detrimental effect on accuracy. Understanding the causes that lead to poor indoor positioning system performance as well as techniques that can be used to improve it is very important. Software defined radio (SDR) is an emerging, state-of-the-art technology which features modulation/de-modulation and other techniques in digital signal processing (DSP) in software as opposed to hardware. SDR technology is also very useful in areas where evaluation and analysis of radio frequency (RF) signals is needed. Due to its extreme flexibility, SDR can be modified quickly. SDR lends itself well to the use and evaluation of other deterministic classification techniques which, when applied to RF signals, can be useful for location determination. One such classification technique is Support Vector Machine (SVM) technology. This paper exploits signal propagation multipath as fingerprints in environments with only few available access points which typically result in poor WPS performance. Multipath fingerprints are then used in implementation of an indoor positioning system using a SDR architecture and SVM classification. The SDR architecture is comprised of a popular SDR platform - GNU Software Radio with a new Universal Software Radio Peripherals (USRP) device - USRP Network Series N210. Classification is performed using a popular classification technique - Library SVM (LibSVM). The SDR architecture and classification leverage Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexed (OFDM) radio frequency (RF) signals transmitted from another GNU Radio/USRP SDR platform. The study demonstrates the feasibility of using multipath fingerprints for WPS-like positioning that justifies further research on providing better ways to understand the causes that lead to poor indoor positioning system performance as well as techniques that can be used to improve it.
