Today's wireless communications engineers working with the latest radio terminals are faced with a challenging new problem in communication terminal design, as those terminals have the ability to process a wide variety of communcations standards. This text explains how sample rate conversion (SRC) can be used to solve this increasingly important issue and offers sound advice on selecting the appropriate types of SRC for specific applications. The book explores the design limitations of software radio and examines the trade-offs required to implement such systems commercially.
