An efficient Software-Defined Radio solution comes when all the aspects of system design are collectively addressed under application specifications and constraints. It includes all—the efforts to design wideband antennas, powerful software to process huge bandwidth of information, optimizations at hardware to maximize performance and nevertheless to mention compilers and operating systems. It is important that every engineer or a scientist working on a particular block of SDR should have a bare-minimum understanding of the entire design stack. There is a need to have clear vision about the targets to be achieved, trade-offs to be made, and a unified approach so that all the objectives are measurable to enable a qualitative and quantitative analysis.
