Introduction to LabVIEW FPGA for RF, Radar, and Electronic Warfare Applications

Terry Stratoudakis

LabVIEW™ is a graphical programming environment used widely by engineers to design, simulate and test new products. While most programming languages look like so many lines of code, LabVIEW uses color blocks and images to stand for functions and operations. This way, engineers can design and test intuitively by arranging blocks and lines within a graphical interface. LabVIEW FPGA helps engineers design, simulate and test reconfigurable, high performance circuits called field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). FPGAs are used widely, and the military uses FPGAs in radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems. This book provides guidance and best practices for designing FPGA-based RF systems for radar and EW applications.

Real-time testing and simulation of open- and closed-loop RF systems for signal generation, signal analysis and digital signal processing require deterministic, low-latency, high-throughput capabilities afforded by user reconfigurable FPGAs. This comprehensive book introduces LabVIEW FPGA, provides the best practices for multi-FPGA solutions and guidance for developing high-throughput, low-latency FPGA-based RF systems. Written by a recognized expert with a wealth of real-world experience in the field, this is the first book written on the subject of FPGAs for radar and other RF applications.
