Software Defined Radio Handbook (11th Edition)

SDR () has revolutionized electronic systems for a variety of applications including communications, data acquisition and . This handbook shows how DDCs () and DUCs (), the fundamental building blocks of SDR, can replace legacy designs while offering significant benefits in performance, density and cost.

In order to fully appreciate the benefits of SDR, conventional receiver and transmitter systems will be compared to their digital counterparts, highlighting similarities and differences.

The inner workings of the SDR will be explored with an in-depth description of the internal structure and the devices used. Finally, some actual board- and system-level implementations and available off-the-shelf SDR products and applications based on such products will be presented.
