Abstract
Software defined radios (SDR) are booming. However, for a final breakthrough these systems need to be versatile, inexpensive and easy to program. In this paper a next step is taken to meet all these requirements. Our hardware consists of a computer with an affordable data acquisition (DAQ) card and a cheap self-made single-stage up-converter. The software is written in the slow learning-curve graphical programming environment LabVIEW. To prove the versatility of our SDR transmitter concept, we send packets with the wireless sensor networks (WSN) protocol IEEE 802.15.4, which are received by an existing packet sniffer.
