• Acronym: openwifi
  • Short description: Open source full stack real-time SDR Wi-Fi on FPGA with embedded ARM and Linux.
  • Main features:
    • Wi-Fi SDR coupled with native Linux driver framework: operating SDR Wi-Fi is the same as commercial Wi-Fi boards with their Linux drivers.
    • Support of time slicing: assign packet with different target MAC address to different time slice.
    • Digital Down Converter bank, that can be used for frequency slicing,  is part of the design.
  • Conceptual figure:
