Gnuradio on beagleboard?

Am I correct, thinking that gnuradio should work on any platform, as
long as
it’s on ubuntu?

Will I be able to run it on http://beagleboard.org/ Beagleboard with
http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardUbuntu Ubuntu ?

Ubuntu is not a requisite of GNU Radio. Ubuntu is merely a flavor of
linux.

GNU Radio will run on Linux, OSX, and possibly windows etc. As noted,
Ubuntu is just one flavour of Linux

GNU Radio runs on the Beagleboard already. Only the FIR fff filter has
been optimized for NEON SIMD though.

There are some guys at Virginia Tech looking at the using the DSP with
GNU Radio also. They might have some more suggestions.

Hi,
I think Philip B. has done some work getting gnuradio to
run with a beagle board, but that used a modified USRP device.

See some of his technotes:

Also check the following links for some of the presentations that he has
made:

I’ve worked with a variant of the beageboard called the gumstix Overo
for about 2 years now. The development environment is very hard to
learn, with a steep learning curve (you need to learn OpenEmbedded OE),
and navigate all the issues that come with it.

Philip’s project used the beagleboard instead of the host computer to do
the processing, coupled with an FPGA and using the Ettus RF front-end.

best regards,

Elvis

If you’re interested in taking the DSP approach on the Beagleboard my
favorite guide to setting up and installing the proper environment is

http://ossie.wireless.vt.edu/trac/wiki/BeagleBoard

I’ve heard that the steps are a little outdated but if you stick with
the toolset versions indicated on the webpage you should be fine. I’ve
managed to target the DSP from GNU Radio to do filtering mostly. I plan
on making my code available but I’ve been too busy lately trying to meet
some project deadlines so it might take me a while to do so.

But basically you can connect to the DSP from GNU Radio if tell the TI
tools to generate libraries instead of excutable for your application
and then you can follow the “How to write a Custom GNU Radio” tutorials
to add them as custom blocks.
