Automating Microwave Measurements with Software Defined Synthetic Instrumentation
“Traditional RF/microwave test and measurement (T&M) instruments are dedicated “boxes” built with application specific and general purpose silicon, firmware and embedded software. In contrast, software defined synthetic instruments (SDSI) “synthesize” multiple instruments – spectrum analyzers, digital storage oscilloscopes, RF receivers, signal generators – with digital signal processing (DSP) software and firmware on commercial embedded multicore processors and field programmable gate arrays (FPGA).” – Read More…
