The term, Software Defined Radio (SDR) often gets conflated by the idea of Software Controlled Radios (SCR), which in essence are part of the control layer for an SDR but are by no means SDRs themselves.

In contrast, SDRs are radios in which all or part of the physical layers (hardware) are manipulated/configured through the use of software.
