Embedded SDR system design case study: An implementation perspective

NCJ Number
Date Published
7 pages

This paper presents a developmental workflow used successfully by the authors for “software-defined radios” (SDRs) and “cognitive radios” (CRs) in running applications on a platform combining digital signal processors (DSPs) and general-purpose based processors (GPPs).


This paper discusses tools used to set up the platform, create compilation environment, develop code for GPP/DSP communication, integrate the DSP into GNU Radio, and use the environment to develop SDR/CR applications. It presents a case study showing how computing heterogeneity can be used to address diverse application needs. (Published abstract provided)
