An introduction to the Software Defined Radio (SDR) and its differences with
program controlled radios are presented in this thesis.
Functional principles of the SDR-14 and its software tool, SpectraVue, are
This thesis includes two different experiments
The first one studies the used of SDR-14 like an AM and FM detector arriving
to the conclusion that is not possible with the tools that we have.
The second one is the use of SDR-14 to measure oscillator stability. These
measures will be studied over long, short and very short time (drift, Allan variance
and phase noise). Also is presented how to obtain FM Random walk (Allan Variance)
from phase noise measurements.
Conclusion and future works are also presented.
