From Wireless Standard to Software Defined Radio: An FPGA implementation of an LTE design


Modeling wireless communications:

  • Hardware implementation of OFDM
  • Overview of LTE standard (training sequences, LTE resource grid)
  • Using real-world recordings to test your design
  • Receiver techniques, such as synchronization, carrier recovery, and equalization

Implementing an LTE application on a software-defined radio:

  • Hardware/software co-design
  • Targeting Xilinx Zynq devices
