USRP Software Defined Radio Stand-Alone Device

10 MHz to 6 GHz, x86 Processor, GPS-Disciplined OCXO, USRP Software Defined Radio Stand-Alone Device—The USRP-2974 is built on the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture with an onboard Intel Core i7 processor running the NI Linux Real-Time OS. The USRP-2974 is a USRP Software Defined Radio Stand-Alone Device, meaning that you can target the onboard processor with LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite to deterministically perform processing. The USRP-2974 is also equipped with a GPS-disciplined 10 MHz oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) Reference Clock. You can prototype a range of advanced research applications that include stand-alone LTE or 802.11 device emulation; Medium Access Control (MAC) algorithm development; multiple input, multiple output (MIMO); heterogeneous networks; LTE relaying; RF compressive sampling; spectrum sensing; cognitive radio; beamforming; and direction finding.
