J. Andy Harriman retains the copyright of his master's thesis from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of New Brunswick (UNB). However, to assist others in typesetting their theses, he has made available all the files that he used. Use these files at your own risk. Neither J. Andy Harriman nor Brent R. Petersen are responsible for any problems that arise. However, if you have any comments, we would be glad to try to incorporate your suggestions.

We propose a novel software-defined radio implementation of a four-channel transceiver testbed with signalling-wavelength-spaced antennas. The radio frequency side of the system is implemented using commercial off-the-shelf products, whereas the baseband processing portion of the system is implemented on a pair of Altera® Stratix® II EP2S180 development boards with high-speed Analog Devices analog-to-digital converter daughter boards. The Altera® field programmable gate array is used to implement digital signal processing algorithms and to affect centralized control over the entire system. A goal was to create a testbed for algorithms and radio channel measurements.
