This paper identifies the issues that are important in the design of a SDR receiver. Receiver architectures are first discussed, and the conclusion drawn that the conventional superheterodyne structure is most appropriate for a SDR receiver. Issues associated with image rejection, and receiver linearity are discussed. The design of a sweepable preselect filter is discussed in detail. Design considerations for a practical SDR test-bed are presented.
