USRP Software Defined Radio Stand-Alone Device

Provides deterministic control of transceivers using an onboard FPGA and processor for rapidly prototyping high-performance wireless communications systems.

The USRP Software Defined Radio Stand-Alone Device is built on the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture with an onboard processor running the NI Linux Real-Time OS. You can target the onboard processor with LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite to deterministically control your application. 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.The registered trademark Linux® is used pursuant to a sublicense from LMI, the exclusive licensee of Linus Torvalds, owner of the mark on a worldwide basis.
