SDR is fast becoming a crucial element of wireless technology the use of SDR technology is predicted to replace many of the traditional methods of implementing transmitters and receivers while providing many advantages including reconfigurability, adaptability, and multi-functionality encompassing modes of operation, radio frequency bands, air interfaces, and waveforms. Research in this field is mainly focused towards improving the computational efficiency of SDR systems. Software-Defined Radio (SDR) is a wireless communication in which the transmitter modulation and the receiver demodulation are both generated through software. The main advantage of this approach is flexibility, as the software execute on one common hardware platform for any type of receiver configuration.
