Ideas for potential future projects
This is a small collection of ideas for developments or research that serves as a reminder, a starting point, and an incentive (e.g. for students). These ideas haven't been discussed yet, but are interesting to keep around.
ODR-DabMod on FPGA
Summary: It is a challenging, and therefore interesting idea in its own respect, to get ODR-DabMod to run on an FPGA platform. Some parts would run on a processor, other parts would be accelerated in custom logic. This would make it possible to use the USRP embedded devices as standalone DAB exciters. The USRP E300 looks promising (Xilinx Zynq).

Remarks: piratfm is doing something in that direction
Summary: Power amplifiers are not entierly linear. The first step is to look into the possibilites and constraints given by the usual PC (dabmod) + USRP scenario for static predistortion. Then, research has to be done about the possibilities to do dynamic predistortion.
Keywords: ODR-DabMod, modulation, signal processing
