The USRP Software Defined Radio Stand-Alone Device built with an FPGA and an Intel i7 onboard processor which you can provision with NI Linux Real-Time, Linux Fedora, or Linux Ubuntu Real-Time Operating Systems. You can program the onboard processor and FPGA with LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite or use an open-source software workflow to deterministically control your application.
The USRP-2974 is ideal for prototyping 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) systems; heterogeneous networks; LTE relaying; RF compressive sampling; spectrum sensing; cognitive radio; beamforming; and direction finding.
- Stand-alone (embedded) or host-based (network streaming) operation
- LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite support for programming both the FPGA and the host, with NI Linux Real-Time.
- LabVIEW Communications 802.11 Application Framework to provide a modifiable FPGA-based 802.11 MAC and PHY reference design
- LabVIEW Communications LTE Application Framework to provide a modifiable FPGA-based LTE MAC and PHY reference design
