Raspberry Pi's Pico W microcontroller board comes with a Broadcom / Infineon Wi-Fi SoC (CYW43439). The combination of the two offers a possibility to create a low-budget, but powerful, software-defined radio receiver. This work involves low-level programming, debugging and reverse engineering. You should be familiar with or ready to deep dive into microcontroller programming, the programming language C, firmware reverse engineering and patching. An understanding of radio frequency receiver architecture and signal processing is helpful.
