USRP bandwidth and FIFOs

Hello!

I have two questions about USRP:

  1. It is stated on
    http://www.comsec.com/wiki?UniversalSoftwareRadioPeripheral that USRP
    can sustain 32 megabytes per second over USB2.0.
    I’m about to build MIMO 2 antenna transmitter. As I and Q each occupy
    16 bits, for two-antenna sample it will require (16*2) * 2 = 64 bits
    or 8 bytes. As a result I can get 32 / 8 = 4 mega samples per second
    and from Nyquist theorem only 2 MHz wide signals could be transmitted.

Please advise whether my reasonings are right.

  1. What are the TX and RX FIFO buffers’ sizes on the board?

Thanks in advance.

4 MS/s COMPLEX gives a 4 MHz nyquist band, since it is complex samples.

2K lines, IIRC

Matt, thank you for quick reply!

  1. Does 2K lines mean 2048 bits?

  2. I noticed the HMC174MS8 switch on the tx/rx path. Does it mean what
    Time Division Duplex is in use? We transmit and receive signals in
    different time moments?

Thank you!
