Hardware, Embedded Systems Anyone who has turned on a shortwave radio in the past decade knows it's a wasteland out there, to the chagrin of nostalgic old geeks like me. But this technology sector is also one poised to explode with innovation thanks to software-defined radio. From H-Online: "Software-defined radio promises to [make] the complexity in radio systems a software problem. The principle is simple and, in the ideal setup, an antenna is connected directly to analogue-to-digital converters for receiving signals and digital-to-analogue converters for transmitting them, with software running on an attached processor taking care of everything else." Your computer is about to become more useful than ever.

>>This getting way out of the normal coverage of OSNews?

Not really, probably is very insightful. In the forthcoming versions of near field communication SDR shall have a major role in the market. A new patent era rises though not many have realized that. Yet. And of course the various implementations of the same algorithms for various OSes etc etc...
