No matter your development tool preferences, you can be confident in USRP hardware, which is compatible with the broadest range of software workflows on the market. You can choose LabVIEW for a unified, dataflow programming style or use the open-source driver with support for C, C++, MathWorks MATLAB®, GNU Radio, and more.
Modern wireless systems require a new generation of SDR for prototyping and deployment. Systems need wider bandwidth, higher frequencies, and more advanced digital signal processing architectures. Explore how the latest USRP options offer enhanced performance to build your next advanced wireless prototype.
Prototyping algorithms for applications such as radar research requires the need for wider bandwidths and more channels. At up to 1.6 GHz of bandwidth and eight transmit and receive channels, the Ettus USRP X440 allows for higher accuracy for direction finding while maintaining phase coherency.
Spectral monitoring across multiple bands requires broad frequency coverage. With up to 7.2 GHz of frequency coverage, USRP SDRs allow users to monitor RF bands for locating and analyzing signals in communications and signals intelligence applications.
The LabVIEW FPGA Module helps you develop and debug custom hardware logic that you can compile and deploy to NI FPGA hardware.
Need More Real-Time Processing?
PXI FlexRIO Coprocessor Modules feature high-performance FPGAs that add signal processing capability to PXI systems. These modules leverage the latest FPGAs from Xilinx, streaming technologies such as PCI Express, and NI Peer-to-Peer Streaming for high-bandwidth data communication with other modules over the backplane. When paired with an SDR, PXI FlexRIO Coprocessor Modules provide the additional FPGA resources required to run complex algorithms in real time.
FlexRIO Feature Highlights:
Implement custom signal processing on large, UltraScale FPGAs
Multi-FPGA systems can easily be built in PXI to meet any digital signal-processing need
FlexRIOs have been combined with SDRs to create cutting edge testbeds
