Software Defined Radio for All
Traditionally, we as Human beings have interacted with the Electromagnetic Spectrum utilizing dedicated "Hardware Radios" where Digital Signal Processing Algorithms were embedded within the hardware, (ASICS Chip), determining which radio frequencies / radio waveforms one can interact with. Today General Purpose Processors, Intel/AMD, have embedded within their chipsets DSP functionality that outperforms traditional "Hardware Radio" manufacturers allowing users the ability to ride " Moore's Law " while controlling the flexibility being able to "Define the Radio entirely in Software". MMX, SSE, SSE2, & SIMD extensions within modern General Purpose Processors, though designed for multimedia and graphics applications, can surpass the demands of wireless signal processing due to the fact that the "Hardware Requirements" of the past can be broken down to algorithms which can be computed entirely in Software processed through Intel/AMD chipsets CACHE enabling its users the ability to ride "Moore's Law".
