OpenWiFi is an FPGA1 and SDR2 implementation of the IEEE 802.11 a/g/n standard (WiFi, for us common folk). Essentially, it’s a WiFi chip, like you’d find in your phone or a router, but open source and written in Verilog. For more introductory reading, see the paper3 or the talk on FOSDEM. This series of blog posts will document my experiences learning and researching.
