probably work well for that.
Since I have some receive only applications I would like to see a box
that took one RX or a RX/TX set of USRP daughterboard(s).
We had also wanted a board that was optimized for wideband signal
reception, processing and analysis. So we designed and built one with
RF front-end and ADC to support 85MHz bandwidth, and an FPGA for
agile radio control and additional on-board processing.
The radio receiver is designed for high P1dB, low noise figure and hence
large operating amplitude range. We’ve currently got two flavors:
2.4GHz and 1.9GHz.
The intended applications for our system are network-based, distributed
spectral & signal analysis. In general it’s useful for wideband test &
measurement applications. The system runs linux and can go fully
standalone, but we’ve also included support for USB2.0 and Ethernet
We’ll have a few beta units available this fall, so if you’re interested
in details, feel free to get in touch.
