Transcript

  • 1. SDR User Interface - a proof of concept PowerSDR-UI Tobias Wellnitz, DH1TW Friedrichshafen [email_address] June 2011
  • 2. Signal Processing User Interface RF Three fundamental building blocks Mixer, Filter, Amplifier, Oscillators... Modulation, Demodulation, NF Filtering... Buttons, Knobs, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor...
  • 3. Signal Processing User Interface RF Classic Transceiver concept Operator
  • 4. Signal Processing User Interface RF Operator -> Physical Independent -> Logical Independent SDR concept
  • 5. User Interface The idea...
  • 6. User Interface PowerSDR + DJ Console = PowerSDR-UI
  • 7. User Interface PowerSDR-UI – some facts
    • Basis:
    • PowerSDR (Open Source – GPL)
    • Sanford MIDI Library (Open Source)
    • Language:

      • 20+ functions any potentiometer
      • 5+ functions on any rotary pulse encoders
  • 8. Take aways
    • Do not only focus on RF or Signal Processing:
    • SDR allows us to design our own User Interfaces
    • Only basic knowledge needed:
    • Soldering
    • Microcontrollers (ASM / C)
    • What also helps: C# / Java / C++ / Objective C
    It’s was never easier to build your own User Interface!
