"Communication System design using NI USRP and LabVIEW"
Introduction: The workshop shall focus on developing the basic skillset for working with National Instruments' Software Defined Radio Platform, NI USRP and LabVIEW. The workshop shall encompass the necessary topics required for an end to end communication system design. The participants will be exposed to the SDR and LabVIEW platform through a hands-on exercises.
Outcome of the Workshop: Here are the expected outcome of the workshop:
1. Basic understanding of graphical system design software LabVIEW for design & prototyping
2. Basic understanding of the NI USRP Hardware Architecture
3. Introduction to Modulation / communication system design suite in LabVIEW
4. Design methodology for an end to end communication system design
