GNU Radio Based BIST for SDR Performance Measurement

In this paper, the authors investigate on methods to develop Built-In Self-Test (BIST) method for performance measurement of a wideband (20MHz) Software Defined Radio (SDR) with frequency coverage from 50MHz to 2.4GHz. The overall quality of transmission and reception is dictated by various RF system and baseband specifications in wireless systems. Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) is a measure of the digital modulation quality of the wireless system under test which is very sensitive to much impairment in the transceiver.
