EDGE Evolution Protocol Analyzer.jpg

Short Description

GSM/2G is the most ubiquitous mobile communication standard worldwide. Millions of people use is every day. An FPGA testbed with digital signal processing blocks from the RazorEDGE project on an ML605 board [1] and analog processing on the evalEDGE FMC module is available. The testbed supports only physical layer operations. A separate board with a CPU is required for baseband firmware. The Baseband Meets CPU project implements the PULP CPU next to the digital signal processing blocks on the FPGA board. However, there is no complete and open source baseband firmware available for 2G operation.

In this project the source code from Open Source GSM Phone Call and the hardware from Baseband Meets CPU shall be taken to roll-out an open source baseband software project with support beyond voice calls. The firmware shall be based on OsmocomBB [2]. A protocol tester [3] or OpenBTS [4] can be used as test environment.
