Putting FPGAs to Work in Software Radio Systems -- Seventh Edition

Programmable logic technology now offers significant advantages for implementing software radio functions such as DDGs (Digital Downconverters). Over the past few years, the functions associated with DDGs have seen a shift from being delivered in (Application-Specific ICs) to operating as (Intellectual Property) in FPGAs.

Recently updated to its 7th Edition, this handbook reviews the application and advantages of FPGAs for implementing software radio functions such as DDC (Digital Downconverter). Some of the advantages include design flexibility, higher precision processing, higher channel density, lower power and cost per channel. Pentek products that utilize technology and their applications are also presented.
