      Waveform Description Language (WDL) was invented to ease the process of porting legacy and/ or new radio waveforms to Programmable / Software Radios. WDL has two primary requirements; 1st it is to provide a rigorous executable behavioural description of waveform signal structures that is unambiguous and yet independent of any particular end item software radio architecture. The 2nd requirement is that the behavioural specification provides a path to automatic code generation for GP’s, DSP’s, and FPFG’s and that the Generated code be tested against the behavioural model.
