I’m trying to do some signal reconstruction and in testing and
concept design, I wanted to attenuate a test signal and hook it up
the RX port of my USRP2 through either the Basic RX or LFRX daughter
eventually through my WBX board). My intention was to attenuate the
through either a resistive attenuator or inductively through a
Essentially, I want to temporarily use my USRP2 and boards as an
I’m very aware that I need to be really careful doing this, as it
very easy to break something.
Theoretically though, provided I can guarantee my signal falls within
accepted input voltage swing for a given daughter board, there shouldn’t
A couple of questions then:
What are the absolute and preferred input voltage ranges for the RX,
Has anybody successfully tried this?
What are the dangers I should be looking out for?
Are there specific precautions I should be taking?
What is the best way of attenuating the signal?
