Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the culmination of advances on several fronts, and is probably the most significant area of development in radio systems today.  The entire worldwide cellular system uses SDR, NASA and the US military communications are now almost exclusively using SDR, and soon new automobile radios will use SDR to accommodate multiple modulation formats.
This talk will make SDR a clear and understandable topic based on analogies to conventional classic radio systems and components. It will introduce the concepts of (1) oversampling and undersampling as it applies to SDR, (2) correctly driving and implementing an A/D converter, and (3) the firmware and software portions of SDR.  A comparison with state-of-the art conventional analog circuitry will be presented, along with a live demonstration of SDR.
