Software Defined Radio (SDR) – EMC Applications
December 3, 2021 @ 12:00 am - 1:00 am UTC
Software Defined Radios (SDRs) have been around for decades but with computer advances their price has dropped dramatically over the last 10 years. SDR hardware can now be purchased easily for under $30, and SDR software packages are available for free for any platform you like. Long beloved of Ham radio enthusiasts, Low Cost SDRs can also be a useful troubleshooting tool for the practicing EMC engineer. In this talk Karen Burnham will demonstrate some of the handy capabilities of a Low Cost SDR system, from determining relative signal strengths to characterizing noise or interfering signals. Come learn how to use this handy and cheap tool set to learn about the electromagnetic and radio frequency environment around us.
