NI USRP™ (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) is an affordable, PC-hosted platform used with NI LabVIEW software to build powerful wireless communications systems.
USRP software defined radio (SDR) platforms and LabVIEW offer numerous applications spanning from education to research. With ready-to-use teaching solutions, the SDR platform supports RF and communications courses through hands-on laboratory learning with real-world signals. The combination of hardware and software offers flexibility and functionality to deliver a rapid prototyping platform for physical layer design, record and playback, signal intelligence, algorithm validation, and more.
Build a 2X2 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) system on the USRP platform to increase wireless system performance.
