This workshop will cover aspects of using Embedded SDRs, including benefits and limitations. The workshop will begin with an overview of differences between Embedded SDR’s vs. Radio front-ends that are designed for use with a larger computer. The workshop will then focus on applications that demonstrate GNU Radio use of embedded SDR. Intermixed with the applications will be discussions of skills, jargon, and information needed to maximum the use of an embedded SDR. Topics covered will include basic Yocto/Openembedded, low-level Linux control of hardware, definitions of common Embedded terms, descriptions of buses, device-trees, and low level Linux kernel control among others. There will be a few radios available to use during the workshop, most likely around 5. A laptop with Linux as the main operating system will be required to use the radio. A laptop with preinstalled GNU Radio 3.10.x would allow the attendee to work with a few more examples.
