Abstract:The use of mobile telephony has shown a spectacular
growth in the last 10 years. A side effect of this rapid
growth is an excess of mobile system standards. Therefore,
the Software-Defined-Radio (SDR) concept is emerging as
a potential pragmatic solution: it aims to build flexible radio
systems, which are multi-service, multi-standard, multiband,
re-configurable and re-programmable, by software.
First, this paper presents a global overview of SDR.
Furthermore, it discusses several front-end architectures of
SDR. The goal of this project is to generate knowledge about
designing part of the functionality of SDR, implemented by
rapid prototyping strategies. The focus is on the front end
of SDR. The technological roadmap is taken into account to
evaluate several architectures.
