A soItware deIined radio is a communications device whose Iunctionality is deIined in soItware.
SoItware-DeIined Radio (SDR) is a rapidly evolving technology that is receiving enormous
recognition and generating widespread interest in the telecommunication industry. Over the last
Iew years, analog radio systems are being replaced by digital radio systems Ior various radio
applications in military, civilian and commercial spaces. In addition to this, programmable
hardware modules are increasingly being used in digital radio systems at diIIerent Iunctional
levels. SDR technology aims to take advantage oI these programmable hardware modules to
build an open-architecture based radio system soItware.SDR technology Iacilitates
implementation oI some oI the Iunctional modules in a radio system such as
modulation/demodulation, signal generation, coding and link-layer protocols in soItware. This
helps in building reconIigurable soItware radio systems where dynamic selection oI parameters
Ior each oI the above-mentioned Iunctional modules is possible. A complete hardware based
radio system has limited utility since parameters Ior each oI the Iunctional modules are Iixed. A
radio system built using SDR technology extends the utility oI the system Ior a wide range oI
applications that use diIIerent link-layer protocols and modulation/demodulation techniques.
SDR technology promises to solve these problems by implementing the radio Iunctionality as
soItware modules running on a generic hardware platIorm. Further, multiple soItware modules
implementing diIIerent standards can be present in the radio system. The system can take up
diIIerent personalities depending on the soItware module being used. Also, the soItware modules
that implement new services/Ieatures can be downloaded over-the-air onto the handsets. This
kind oI Ilexibility oIIered by SDR systems helps in dealing with problems due to diIIering
standards and issues related to deployment oI new services/Ieatures.
The need to identiIy the digital modulation type oI an incoming radio signal is important in order
to design an intelligent system that can be used Ior diIIerent applications. This paper describes an

comparison approach to identiIy various digital modulated signals by using either wavelet
transIorm to extract the transient characteristics oI the digital modulated signal, or Iast Fourier
transIorm (FFT) to measure the power level at diIIerent Irequencies, allowing a simple
identiIication process. The detail methods to identiIy the modulation scheme oI signals by the
wavelet transIorm and FFT is described. The perIormance oI the identiIication is investigated
through simulation Ior diIIerent signal to noise ratio (SNR) values. Result showed that the system
identiIication perIormance is improved more than 95°when SNR is more than 9dB Ior the entire
proposed schemes using both wavelet transIorm technique and FFT.
Keywords. SDR, wavelet transform and Fast Fourier transform.
