SDR pioneer dies

| November 24, 2017

Sad news now.

One of the pioneers of software-defined radio, Dr Vanu Bose, died suddenly at the age of just 52 on 11 November 2017.

He gained his PhD at MIT, founded, and was CEO of Vanu, Inc.

His company made much early progress in SDR, including developing the first SDR GSM mobile phone base station.

Later developments included solar-powered mobile phone base stations.

Dr Bose donated many of these to Puerto Rico this year to replace infrastructure destroyed by the hurricanes.
