This paper presents the design of WARP, a custom platform for research in advanced wireless algorithms and applications. The platform consists of both custom hardware and FPGA implementations of key communications blocks. The hardware consists of FPGA-based processing boards coupled to wideband radios and other I/O interfaces; the algorithm implementations already include a flexible OFDM physical layer. Both the hardware specifications and algorithm implementations will be freely available to academic researchers to enable the development of a widely disseminated, highly capable platform for wireless research.
