WSRD Workshop IX: "Radio Receiver Systems: R&D Innovation Needs, and Impacts on Technology and Policy"

May 5, 2017

Principles of co-existence and interference tolerance are often overlooked and under-exploited in today’s radio receiver systems. For example, a receiver’s ability to accept wanted signals or reject unwanted signals impacts the quality of the information transmitted. The Wireless Spectrum R&D Interagency Working Group (WSRD) held a workshop, “Radio Receiver Systems: R&D Innovation Needs, and Impacts on Technology and Policy”, on May 5, 2017 at the National Science Foundation, Arlington, Virginia. The workshop addressed various signal reception topics including technology advances for receivers, transmitters, filters, antenna design, signal processing techniques, and policy issues...
