This paper discusses a design methodology suitable for the development of software defined radio platforms. A flexible digital receiver was designed and implemented using a multi-port direct converter and an FPGA-based platform. The design starts with a hardware-oriented top-level system model. The model is built based on basic signal processing blocks connected together in a graphical tool. Carrier symbol timing recovery is implemented in the discrete-time (digital) domain with an interpolator-based synchronizer. Carrier phase and frequency are recovered using a feedback synchronization algorithm (a second-order type-II digital PLL). Experimental results of the platform and its simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed design methodology.
