GNU Radio 802.15.4 En- and Decoding [Report]

NESL Technical Report #: 2006-9-6


Abstract: The IEEE wireless standard 802.15.4 gets widespread attention because of its adoption in sensor networks, home automation, and other networked systems. The goal of the project is to implement an en- and decoding block for the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol in GNU Radio, an open source solution for software defined radios. This report will give an insight into the working of GNU Radio and some of its hardware components. Additionally, it gives details about the implementation of the en- and decoding blocks. At the end, we will verify the implementation by sending and receiving messages to and from an actual IEEE 802.15.4 radio chip, the CC2420 from ChipCon, and give a small bandwidth comparison of the two solutions.
