Software Defined Radio - Past, Present, and Future
This whitepaper reflects on the journey Software Defined Radios (SDRs) have taken over the last 30 years and evaluates the domination to become industry standard. SDRs today are evolving into frequency-agile intelligent communication systems and this whitepaper finally looks ahead to evaluate the future and next generation of SDRs.
What’s next for SDR? As the ubiquity of 4G handsets has propelled SDRs, the prospects of emerging technologies such as 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT), and sensor networks promise to again increase the volume of SDRs by another order of magnitude. What will be the technology driver lifting SDR to these lofty heights? As with previous leaps in SDR adoption, it will likely be a combination of both hardware and software technologies.Software Defined Radio: Past, Present, and Future.
