NI at National Conference on Communications 2016


NCC is a flagship conference of India in the broad areas of communications, organized every year by the Joint Telematics Group (JTG) of the IITs and the IISc. It is a forum for researchers, students and practicing engineers to present and exchange ideas in latest technological advancements and innovations. Over the last twenty one years, it has witnessed progressively larger participation of researchers both from Academia and Industry.

National Instruments is a Platinum Sponsor at NCC and is collaborating with top researchers focused on wireless research, specifically 5G wireless communications. During this occasion, NI will convey information on SDR platforms that enable you to stay up to speed with the latest 5G technologies and trends. Do not miss visiting the NI booth at NCC!

Tutorial: Build Your Own Communication System using Software Defined Radio

Software Defined Radios are increasingly being used for research on next generation wireless systems, as well as for teaching wireless communication concepts. With demonstrations, this tutorial explains SDR basics, architecture of SDR, and implications of SDR architecture in implementing various communication schemes.


Introduction to Software Defined Radio & Applications

Architecture of SDR – Role of IQ Modulator, FPGA, Processor & Synchronization signals

How to use an SDR to synthesize any RF signal / communication scheme?

o Examples - Channel sounding, Full duplex, Protocol implementationo Implementing Digital Communication system using SDR

LTE & WLAN Application Frameworks

The attendees for hands on workshop will get to work on an SDR unit to implement wireless communication with over-the-air signals! You can also interact with live Wi-Fi signals, FM transmitter, slide changer etc.


Exercises Covered:

  • Basics of Programming SDR with LabVIEW & Mathscript
  • Tx & Rx of single tone RF signal
  • Implementation of PSK Transmitter & Receiver
  • Implementing CFO Correction, Frame Sync, Packet Recovery
  • Fun activity with RF signal record & playback!
  • ‘Ready-to-run’ & ‘Explore-yourself’ demo applications (on 3 demo stations only)
    • LTE Application Framework – Video Streaming
    • SISO TDD OFDM – Video Streaming
    • Cognitive Radio
