DBSRX Lo Frequency


#1

Is there a missing class for the DBSRX daughterboard not include in the
CVS repository? There seems to be no way to command the LO frequency
tuning word of the MAX2118 downcoverter chip.

Use the ‘tune’ method:

r = usrp.tune(self.u, 0, self.subdev, target_freq)

This is from my code in
gr_radio_astronomy/src/python/usrp_ra_receiver.py


#3

I guess this implies there is no C++ native DBSRX support at this time?
Does there exist an ICD to the DBSRX daughterboard that I could write a
C++ driver to?

This is correct. It’s on the list of things to do, ticket:127.

Look at the python code in gr-usrp/src/db_dbs_rx.py and the schematics.
