Software-defined radio (SDR) represents a break from traditional radio frequency (RF) design techniques. Flexible RF front-ends and high-performance digital hardware let developers exploit novel techniques to eke more capacity out of the wireless spectrum and build highly differentiated systems. Using SDR, engineers can build radios that can react more readily to interference, employ more sophisticated channel-coding schemes to increase data rates and take advantage of other advanced RF technologies. This white paper discusses a couple of techniques with reference to hardware from within its distribution portfolio.
