Analogue filter considerations are critical to the success of the hardware component of a Software Defined Radio. This paper sets out to show that the filtering requirements of a receiver and transmitter are very similar, and goes on to show that linearity issues are also of similar concern with both the transmitter and receiver. The paper then focuses on the image rejection requirements of an SDR receiver, and discusses filter techniques that can provide flexible image suppression. The paper concludes with a discussion of some simulation results for a proposed flexible filter design
