This paper presents an overview of a Cognitive Radio Kit, an open software defined radio framework developed specifically to enable experimental research in cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum techniques. Currently available open software defined platforms are limited by performance and bandwidth constraints, and inadequate frequency tuning range at the RF front-end. The proposed platform addressed those limitations by providing the ability to dynamically add hardware based acceleration for
