Software Radio Programming Model

Participants : Tanguy Risset, Kevin Marquet, Lionel Morel, Guillaume Salagnac, Florent de Dinechin.

Finally the third research axis is concerned with software aspect of the software radio terminal (left of Fig 3). We have currently two actions in this axis, the first one concerns the programming issues in software defined radio devices, the second one focusses on low power devices: how can they be adapted to integrate some reconfigurability.

The expected contributions of Socrate in this research axis are :

  • The design and implementation of a “middleware for sdr ”, probably based on a Virtual Machine.

  • Prototype implementations of novel software radio systems, using chips from Leti and/or Lyrtech software radio boards.

  • Development of a smart node: a low-power Software-Defined Radio node adapted to wsn applications.

  • Methodology clues and programming tools to program all these prototypes.
