Date of Defense 2009-08-07 Availability unrestricted AbstractA large body of work has been produced in the area of productivity enhancers for the design of both Software-Deﬁned Radio and Field Programmable Gate Arrays systems. These tool
are created with the goal of aiding the user in the process of instantiating a design. They do not address, however, a speciﬁc use-case in which the user does not know or care about
what the design of his system is. In this work, analysis-based design is presented and applied to FPGA-based SDRs. The RapidRadio framework abstracts away much of the knowledge
required for analyzing an unknown signal and building an FPGA-based receiver. Resource utilization is traded-oﬀ for reduced implementation time and increased ﬂexibility.
Automatic modulation classiﬁcation is done with blind parameter estimation. Unlike other contemporary work, no a priori knowledge about the signal being classiﬁed is assumed.
This leads to the development of a system that does not depend on perfect synchronization to classify the signal. A new quasi-generic synchronization architecture that allows the
synchronization of multiple modulations schemes is presented. The result of the modulation classiﬁcation is used to automatically create an FPGA-based radio receiver.
