Software Radio Workshop
Radio transmission using digital technologies, towards which much of the world is turning as the de facto platform for broadcast, usually requires complex and costly equipment out of the reach of individuals. However, through the use of open source software, software defined radio technologies, a new field of possibilities opens for experimentation, micro networks and the democratisation of digital radio's future.
In this workshop, you will learn how to use these tools to setup "your own digital transmission chain":
- Gnuradio on Linux
- CRC-MMBTOOLS usage: crc-dabmux, crc-dabmod
- Setup of a live DAB/DAB+ transmission chain
The workshop will be with the presence of the initiators and developers from CRC who created CRC MMBTools, the free software suite that permits to create Digital Radio transmission (DAB/DAB+/T-DMB multiplexing, COFDM modulation). This is also an occasion to meet other developers around the topic.
Target audience: engineers, developers or technicians (Linux knowledge advised)
Equipment needed: Bring a laptop with Linux Ubuntu already installed
In order to produce the radio signal, a Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) is needed. Bring it to the workshop if you have one. If you plan to continue experimentation using sotware defined radio, you can purchase it at http://www.ettus.com a USRP1 (700$)+ WBX daughterboard (450$) is the basic setting to start.
