Software Defined Radio: Architectures, Systems and Functions
Key features include:
- Presents new research in wireless communications
- Summarises the results of an extensive research program on software defined radios in Europe
- Provides a comprehensive view on reconfigurability in three very active research projects as CAST (Configurable radio with Advanced Sodftware Technology), MOBIVAS (Downloadable MOBIle Value Added Services through Software Radio and Switching Integrated Platforms), TRUST (Transparently Re-configurable Ubiquitous Terminal) and SCOUT (Smart User-Centric Communciation Environment).
