Executive Summary

Market Overview

Introduction
For the purpose of this research, Frost & Sullivan has adopted the definition of Software-defined Radio (SDR) established by the Wireless Innovation Group (formerly SDR Forum). In a nutshell, SDR is a device that transmits and receives Radio Frequency (RF) signals wirelessly to convey information.

Key components in SDRs include transmitters, receivers, amplifiers, filters, mixers, Analog-to-digital Converters (DAC), and antennas. The implementation of the components in an SDR differs from that of a traditional radio in the sense that some or all of the layer functions are defined by software as opposed to being implemented in hardware.

Today, everything from the physical to the network layer in an SDR is implemented in the software or firmware.

Considering this definition, radios that are being produced across industries are predominantly software-defined. However, while SDRs are used across different industries, some end-user segments such as the military implement the SDR concept more explicitly than others. SDRs are used in various applications from military radio communications to cellular phones and, therefore, feature varying RF capabilities. They can be reprogrammed easily, post manufacturing, to support a wide range of communication standards.

This study focuses on the equipment used to test SDRs, which mainly consist of signal analyzers, signal generators, one-box testers, and application-specific solutions.
