Software Defined Radio (SDR) is a wireless communication system in which components of transmitters and receivers are mostly implemented in software. GNU Radio is an open source software package designed for SDR application development. It provides a graphical user interface framework to create an interactive environment for the user, and is well supported by SDR platforms such as USRP, HackRF, and BladeRF. GNU Radio uses a combination of Python and C++, where Python handles the high level interface and C++ is used to implement drivers and low level interfaces with hardware. In order to accelerate the baseband processing of the SDR, the main goal of this internship project is to identify opportunities for compute acceleration and move some processing blocks (FFT, FIR, frame detection...) from CPU to GPGPU accelerators. This can be achieved using the NVIDIA CUDA toolkit.
The objectives of this internship project are:
