In this paper, the authors demonstrate Software Defined Radio (SDR) based prototyping using Visual C++ Express and Code Composer Studio. More specifically an IEEE802.11a Phy compliant baseband processor was written in C++ and a radio link demonstrated \"Live\" using a standard PC and the DSK6713 kit from spectrum digital for baseband processing at the receiver and transmitter side respectively. To reduce costs without loss of educational value (the algorithms remains the same), the bandwidth was scaled down from 20MHz to 6 kHz to be able to utilize cheap narrowband COTS RF frontends operating at an intermediate frequency of only 12 kHz at the transmitter and receiver sides.
