Programming the USRP using Altera DSPBuilder and Simulink


#1

Dear ALL

I’d like 1st to introduce myself I’m Ayman Shalaby final year
undergraduate
student at Alexandria University ,Egypt.

For our project we are implementing the PHY layer and MAC privacy
sublayer
of the OFDM Profile of WiMAX 802.16e .

We are using for our design TI 6416 DSK for the baseband processing and
USRP
for Digital IF and RF at 2.4 ISM band.

I have some questions and I just wonder any body can help me with them :

1st of all : We had already designed the model of DDC and DUC using
IP
MegaCore v5 functions from Altera (in two days) and already synethsized
it
with Qaurtus II Web Edition, then when we tried to implement the code
on
the Cyclone FPGA we were asked for Altera DSP Builder licence L .
Anybody
knows how can we crack it ?

2nd: any body can help me to get Altera IP megacore v6

3rd: should I install 1st programs for the USB interface.?

4th: I just wonder anybody interfaced the USRP with TI DSKs or any other
Kits .If so, how it can be done ??

Sincerely

Ayman M. Shalaby

No clue and no interest in cracking the Altera license.

However, we’re already implemented a DDC and DUC in the FPGA. It’s
coded in verilog and it’s free software. Before you reinvent the
wheel, you may want to spend a bit of time looking at the existing
code. The DUC may have suffered some bit-rot. It’s been a while
since we used it. We do use the DDC in our current build.

If you haven’t already downloaded the code, start here:
