Putting FPGAs to Work in Software Radio Systems, 6th Edition

November 09, 2011 // By Rodger Hosking, Pentek
FPGAs have become an increasingly important resource for software radio systems. Programmable logic technology now offers significant advantages for implementing software radio functions such as DDCs (digital down-converters). Over the past few years, the functions associated with DDCs have seen a shift from being delivered in ASICs to operating as IP in FPGAs. Recently updated to its 6th edition, this handbook introduces the basics of FPGA technology and its relationship to SDR (Software Defined Radio) systems. A review of Pentek's GateFlow FPGA Design Resources is followed by a discussion of features and benefits of FPGA-based DDCs
