Designing RF Communication Systems Using SDRs with GNU Radio
What you'll learn
- Developing SDR Applications
- Real-time Wireless Communication with SDR
- GNU Radio for Wireless Signal Processing
- Solutions to Wireless Channel Impairements
- Basic Introduction to signal processing and communication
SDR is a reality around us. It is present in a lot of systems everywhere and is a versatile technology which can be used for many things, not only academics and industrial, but also ethical hacking etc.
This course will comprehensively cover developing software defined radio (SDR) communications systems using the GNU Radio signal processing and development environment. The course is structured so that concepts and theory can be instantly translated to practice with hands-on implementations. We use two hardware SDR platforms: Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) as transmitter and RTL-SDR as a receiver. However, the course is designed in such a way that even if you do not have USRP, you can use any other cheap SDR as transmitter easily with slight changes in gnuradio. As far as RTL-SDR is concerned, you can easily acquire this device for $19 only.
At the end of this course you will be able to make a data-communication link using SDRs.
This comprehensive course is comprised of following sections to cover all the important aspects of 'Software Defined Radio' environment:
Section 1: Introduction
Section 2: Communication fundamentals related to SDR
Section 3: Block Diagram of SDR Hardware Explained
Section 4: GNU Radio for Wireless Communication
Section 5: Combating the Impairments of The Wireless Channel
Section 6: Packet Transmission using GNU Radio
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to develop real time Software Defined Radio (SDR) applications
- Radio Communication enthusiasts
- GNU radio companion learners
