Entrepreneur and Consultant's Network: Tom Kaminski
presented an interesting talk from a quick review of Digital
Signal Processing to the use of inexpensive USB-connected
Software Defined Radio devices running on inexpensive
System-on-a-Chip microprocessors. The USB devices, based
on a DVB-T Digital Broadcast TV receivers used in most of the
world (outside of the US),
cost as little as $12 and implement an RF amplifier,
converter, and In-Phase and Quadrature digitizer that works up
to 2.5 Mega Samples per Second (8-bits for each of I and
Q). Tom demonstrated the use of Open-Sourced SDR, such
as GNUradio Companion, on his laptop and on both the
RaspberryPi and BeagleBone Black SoCs. Tom has provided
link of the slides he presented.
