With the increase of SDR applications, the demand for high bandwidth and processing power also increased. Therefore, the SDR system needs a programmable and scalable multi-core high performance hardware architecture. In this workshop, the student will learn and understand basic working of SDR. The student will also program SDR application on scalable multi-core, programmable and parameterizable High Performance Software Defined Radio system architecture and development environment.
Special Features for the Participants:
    Certificates will be awarded.
    PEC Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Credit Points will be awarded to the Engineers.
    Shields will be Presented to Professionals.

Software Defined Radio (SDR) is a radio communication technique which executes and process telecommunication applications in software using programmable processing systems.

SDR is considered as the future for digital communication because it provides software level programmability, efficiently uses resources and gives support of artificial intelligence.
