The GNU Radio project reports that there are now more than 1000 units of the AEMB processor in the wild. They have already shipped 1000 units of their software-defined radio hardware device that is powered by the AEMB core processor. This is quite an achievement for the AEMB processor core. It will serve as a motivation to spur further development.
GNU Radio is a collection of software that when combined with minimal hardware, allows the construction of radios where the actual waveforms transmitted and received are defined by software. What this means is that it turns the digital modulation schemes used in today’s high performance wireless devices into software problems.
