Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) is a radio broadcast technology widely used in Europe and asian regions. Despite the popularity, there is no open-source tool that allows the transmission of arbitrary data over DAB.
Most of the currently existing professional Software Defined Radio (SDR) transceivers are capable to encode and pack raw DAB data in hardware like Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
Affordable DAB receivers that do not support hardware decoding produce just complex Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) samples. There exists therefore a large gap for third party applications that want to use DAB to transmit and receive arbitrary data.
The aim of this thesis is to find ways in which third party applications can easily use DAB to communicate. Apart from a review of possible solutions, we provide an open-source tool set that can be used for this purpose. It was especially challenging to obtain the performance necessary for this application.
