Software Defined Radio: Theory and Practice is a comprehensive resource covering software defined radio (SDR) from theory to practical applications. The book provides foundational knowledge for communication engineers and SDR enthusiasts. It covers digital modulation techniques, from basic to advanced techniques such as SC-OFDM and GMSK. The book then discusses RF channel impairments and strategies for eliminating them along with the use of channel equalization and modern frequency domain equalizers utilized in cellular telephony. Source and channel coding are introduced, and receiver analog design is thoroughly researched, comparing traditional and modern designs. The book includes important review topics such as complex numbers, fixed-point numeric formats, decision theory, Doppler, and more. Software Defined Radio: Theory and Practice offers a well-rounded approach to understanding and applying SDR, combining theoretical knowledge with practical exercises and simulations for a comprehensive learning experience.
