Accelerating 5G Product Development by Using a COTS-Based SDR System for the Development Platform

by Bob Muro, Application Specialist, Pentek

While real-time recording of a gigahertz or more of RF bandwidth is commonly available in 19″ rack-mountable systems, shrinking this capability into a form factor suitable for UAVs, aircraft pods, or other confined spaces has proven challenging for the industry.

This article is designed to familiarize a new user about Software Defined Radio in a multi-purpose COTS platform that can reduce the time-to-market of your 5G products.
