I’m currently planning on buying some SDR Devices in order to implement
and assess some sensing algorithms… Right now, i’m just comparing two
SDR Devices : USRP N210 and RICE WARP.
I found almost all the information about these SDR Devices in the
documentation which is available on the website/repository.
But, still, one question remains.
In a practical way, I think, I’ll have to do some FPGA Modification (I
already know that modifications on host computer/GNURadio GUI should be
easier, it’s not the point.)
I just wanted to know a little bit more about : quoting “the FGPA is
reconfigurable over the Ethernet using the internal Flash” (form the
description of the USRP N210 on Ettus Website-News)
Concretly, how is this working ? (I know, we were able to do this
kind of FPGA modifications, using a SD Card on USRP 2, but…)
Do I need Xilinx Software Tools to do these modifications ?
Any documentation on this subject ? Or even examples which show what
could be done ?
Bonus Question : Why would you recommand USRP N210 instead of WARP ?
