Students in Professor Wyglinski’s Software-Defined Radio Systems and Analysis Class Test Their Systems

Ten teams of two students each spent seven weeks designing, building, and testing a software-defined digital (SDR) communications system

ECE 4305

Ten teams of two students each spent seven weeks designing, building, and testing a software-defined digital (SDR) communications system capable of performing ad hoc wireless networking without any external assistance by a human end-user. According to Professor Wyglinski, “The prototype SDR digital communication system must be capable of either joining to an existing ad hoc wireless network or establishing an ad hoc wireless network of its own when no such network is present. Each SDR system should be able to perform automatic carrier frequency compensation, frame synchronization, bi-directional communications, spectrum sensing, and carrier-sensed multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) when joining to an existing network, updating the network information of other systems within the same network, and supporting communications between two or more systems across the network.”

Here is a sampling of the work from the students in ECE 4305, C Term 2011:

Travis Collins ’11 ECE and James Silvia ’11 ECE Video I, Video II, Video III

Si Chen, Graduate Student ECE, and Brian Shaw ’11 ECE

Jarrad Fallon ’11 ECE and Saul Garcia ’11 ECE

John Manero '12 ECE and Nathan Olivarez '13 ECE

James Montgomery '11 ECE and Tuan Vu '11 ECE

Amit Parshuram, Graduate Student ECE, and Harika Velamala, Graduate Student ECE Video I, Video II

The generous financial and technical support provided by The MathWorks is gratefully acknowledged, especially with respect to the Simulink USRP2 Interface blocks available in the Communications Blockset which the entire laboratory component of ECE 4305 was based.
