CML – Bringing the Flexibility of Software Defined Radio to Narrowband and Industrial Wireless Applications

Introduction A Software-Defined Radio (SDR) is one that implements some traditional hardware radio functions in software. For example, in the extreme case one can use a high performance Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) to digitize a wide swath of RF spectrum, then implement functions in software to provide the down-conversion mixer, filtering, and baseband recovery. Such a […]
