A good computer to use with USRP2


#1

Hello Community,

We will buy a new computer to program our USRP2…
I would like to know what are the minimum requisites for USRP2?

I read in FAQ that a Gigabit Ethernet adapter is essencial… How
about the processor?

The more horsepower the better, assuming that you want to process
sample streams at 25MS/s. At a minimum something like a 3.0 GHz Core
2 duo might work. You’d probably be happier with a Core 2 quad. Some
of us are using dual quad-core Xeons… It all depends on what kind
of signal processing you want to attempt.
