Abstract:

Mobile Software Defined Radios (SDRs) of the future will require wideband capability, complete radio reprogramability, and the ability to function in the mobile, low power environment. To meet these sometimes conflicting requirements innovative components will need to be integrated into innovative architectures. Systems offering these capabilities today are large form factors that typically do not contain true "reprogrammable radios". Aeronix proposes to take an existing design for a small low power software reprogrammable radio and modify it's "fixed radio" areas to enable a true "SDR" design for mobile handhelds. Aeronix has a current radio that is designed for low power, high performance, and software reprogramability. The radio consists of a SOC processor and DSP, an FPGA, and a fixed frequency radio. Aeronix will replace the fixed radio block with a broadband RF SOC (Aeronix has formed relationship with a large OEM and has approval to use SOC in designs) and MEMS front end filters. This new design will be modeled based on SCA and GLOMO API definitions that will also serve as a waveform development environment.
