Digital Communications and LabVIEW
Let us start by exploring exactly how LabVIEW can be used for receiving digital communication signals. This book will focus on the implementation of two different digital communication structures. The first is a typical digital receiver, discussed in Sec. 1.1. Section 1.2 covers the second type, which is an all-digital receiver. Both receivers are used in practice today and both have their positive and negative qualities. The following sections will outline the advantages and disadvantages of each type of digital receiver and give the reader a better idea of how exactly LabVIEW fits into these structures.
