Help Getting usrp.tune to work


#1

I’ve been struggling with a particular USRP to get usrp.tune () to
work with a Flex400 daughtercard. It seems to work on the rest of
the USRP’s, and their various cards (including a Flex400), but not 1
in particular. Here is what I can provide; please ask for more info
if needed! - MLD

  • “print-db” returns:

RX d’board A: Flex 400 Rx MIMO B
RX d’board B: TV Rx
TX d’board A: Flex 400 Tx MIMO B
TX d’board B: Basic Tx

  • The daughtercard says “FLEX400” “10-11-05”.

  • I’ve tried using burn-db-eeprom with “rfx400”, “rfx400_mimo_b”, and
    “rfx400_mimo_a”, but the result is the same - usrp.tune () still
    doesn’t seem to work.

First let’s identify what hardware you have.

What rev is your USRP? If it is rev 4.0 or higher it is capable of
driving an RFX400, an RFX400_MIMO_A, or an RFX400_MIMO_B. If it is a
lower rev, it can only drive an RFX400 or an RFX400_MIMO_A.

Does your RFX400 have X1 and X101 populated or empty?
Which of the following resistors on the RFX400 are populated – R34?
R35? R36?
What was the eeprom originally programmed with?

Does this RFX400 work with other USRPs?
Does this USRP work with other RFX400s?
