Software Defined Radio Handbook -- 10th Edition

has revolutionized electronic systems for a variety of applications including communications, and .

This 82-page handbook shows how DDCs and DUCs, the fundamental building blocks of SDR, can replace conventional receiver designs, offering significant benefits in performance, density and cost.

In order to fully appreciate the benefits of SDR, conventional analog receiver and transmitter systems will be compared to their digital counterparts, highlighting similarities and differences.

The inner workings of the SDR will be explored with an in-depth description of the internal structure and the devices used. Finally, some actual board- and system-level implementations and available off-the-shelf SDR products and applications based on such products will be presented.
