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.

Software Defined Radio makes wireless communications easier, more efficient, and more reliable. This book bridges the gap between academic research and practical implementation. When beginning a project, practicing engineers, technical managers, and graduate students can save countless hours by considering the concepts presented in these pages. The author covers the myriad options and trade-offs available when selecting an appropriate hardware architecture. As demonstrated here, the choice between hardware- and software-centric architecture can mean the difference between meeting an aggressive schedule and bogging down in endless design iterations. Because of the author’s experience overseeing dozens of failed and successful developments, he is able to present many real-life examples. Some of the key concepts covered are: Choosing the right architecture for the market – laboratory, military, or commercial, Hardware platforms – FPGAs, GPPs, specialized and hybrid devices, Standardization efforts to ensure interoperability and portabilitym State-of-the-art components for radio frequency, mixed-signal, and baseband processing. The text requires only minimal knowledge of wireless communications; whenever possible, qualitative arguments are used instead of equations. An appendix provides a quick overview of wireless communications and introduces most of the concepts the readers will need to take advantage of the material. An essential introduction to SDR, this book is sure to be an invaluable addition to any technical bookshelf.

Simulating Wireless Communication Systems: Practical Models in C++ C. Britton Rorabaugh The practical, inclusive reference for engineers simulating wireless systems In order to keep prices within reach of the average consumer, cellular phone and wireless data transceiver manufacturers resort to mass producing millions of units from a single design. Considering the design complexity and fabrication expense involved, typical prototyping is not practical–designs must first be tested and honed using simulation. Author C. Britton Rorabaugh brings to the table more than 20 years of experience simulating large, state-of-the-art communications systems. In Simulating Wireless Communication Systems, Rorabaugh explores, using C++, practical and authoritative techniques for simulating even the most complex wireless communication systems. Along the way he shows you how to create custom simulations that fit your project's intended design, so that you and your engineering team aren't forced to resort to inadequate commercial simulation packages. This book includes nearly two hundred models of practical devices for implementing wireless communication systems and major subsystems. Mathematical and statistical appendices are also included to provide useful information for those seeking to understand, set up, and use any of Rorabaugh's detailed device models. Contents include: A background and overview of simulation Discussion of a variety of model types, including Random Process, Filter, and Channel models Practical modulation and demodulation Synchronization, signal shifting, and recovery Detailed instructions for working with Galois fields A comprehensive companion Web site featuring dozens of ready-to-run software modules If you're an engineer or wireless communication project manager, then Simulating Wireless Communication Systems: Practical Models in C++ will prove to be both a convenient reference and an ideal instructional manual for the creation of specialized wireless communication simulations that will enable you to bring your product to market in a cost-effective and efficient manner. C. BRITTON RORABAUGH has a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University and currently holds the position of Chief Scientist for a company that develops and manufactures specialized military communications equipment. He is the author of several publications on topics such as DSP, Digital Filters, and Error Coding and has experience in object-oriented design, realtime software, numerical methods, computer graphics, C++, C, SPW, MATLAB®, Visio®, TEX/LATEX, Microsoft® Office, and assembly languages for various microprocessors and DSP devices.

The Accessible Guide to Modern Wireless Communication for Undergraduates, Graduates, and Practicing Electrical Engineers Wireless communication is a critical discipline of electrical engineering and computer science, yet the concepts have remained elusive for students who are not specialists in the area. This text makes digital communication and receiver algorithms for wireless communication broadly accessible to undergraduates, graduates, and practicing electrical engineers. Notably, the book builds on a signal processing foundation and does not require prior courses on analog or digital communication. Introduction to Wireless Digital Communication establishes the principles of communication, from a digital signal processing perspective, including key mathematical background, transmitter and receiver signal processing algorithms, channel models, and generalizations to multiple antennas. Robert Heath’s “less is more” approach focuses on typical solutions to common problems in wireless engineering. Heath presents digital communication fundamentals from a signal processing perspective, focusing on the complex pulse amplitude modulation approach used in most commercial wireless systems. He describes specific receiver algorithms for implementing wireless communication links, including synchronization, carrier frequency offset estimation, channel estimation, and equalization. While most concepts are presented for systems with single transmit and receive antennas, Heath concludes by extending those concepts to contemporary MIMO systems. To promote learning, each chapter includes previews, bullet-point summaries, examples, and numerous homework problems to help readers test their knowledge. Basics of wireless communication: applications, history, and the central role of signal processing Digital communication essentials: components, channels, distortion, coding/decoding, encryption, and modulation/demodulation Signal processing: linear time invariant systems, probability/random processes, Fourier transforms, derivation of complex baseband signal representation and equivalent channels, and multi-rate signal processing Least-squared estimation techniques that build on the linear algebra typically taught to electrical engineering undergraduates Complex pulse amplitude modulation: symbol mapping, constellations, signal bandwidth, and noise Synchronization, including symbol, frame, and carrier frequency offset Frequency selective channel estimation and equalization MIMO techniques using multiple transmit and/or receive antennas, including SIMO, MISO, and MIMO-OFDM Register your product at informit.com/register for convenient access to downloads, updates, and corrections as they become available.
