Understand the RF and Digital Signal Processing Principles Driving Software-defined Radios!Software-defined radio (SDR) techlogy is a configurable, low cost, and power efficient solution for multimode and multistandard wireless designs. This book describes software-defined radio concepts and design principles from the perspective of RF and digital signal processing as performed within this system. After an introductory overview of essential SDR concepts, this book examines signal modulation techniques, RF and digital system analysis and requirements, Nyquist and oversampled data conversion techniques, and multirate digital signal processing.. KEY TOPICS*Modulation techniquesMaster analog and digital modulation schemes*RF system-design parametersExamine ise and link budget analysis and Non-linear signal analysis and design methodology*Essentials of baseband and bandpass sampling and gain controlIF sampling architecture compared to traditional quadrature sampling, Nyquist zones, automatic gain control, and filtering*Nyquist sampling converter architecturesAnalysis and design of various Nyquist data converters*Oversampled data converter architecturesAnalysis and design of continuous-time and discrete-time Delta-Sigma converters*Multirate signal processing Gain kwledge of interpolation, decimation, and fractional data rate conversion
Tony J. Rouphael has worked on all aspects of wireless communications ranging from antenna and RF to digital signal processing. At Philips, Siemens, Northrop Grumman, RF Micro Devices, and others, he has developed products in TDMA IS-136, CDMA2000, GSM, WCDMA, UWB, 802.11, and software defined radio for JTRS applications. He holds 48 US patents, published over 20 journal articles in signal processing and communications, and published a book entitled RF and Signal Processing for Software Defined Radio with Elsevier-Newness.
