Â Â this is my first post here and I would like to ask a question. I
USRP1 hardware with some daughterboards and I would like to start to do
something with it, but the problem is that I don’t know where to start.
Â Â Â As I read messages here in the mailing list I realized that I’m
the beginning compared to all of you. I read some questions about the
GNU Radio and Windows to control USRP1, but I could not found any clear
This is why I’m asking for some help.
Â Â Â The OS I’m using is the Windows OS, I really didn’t tried out Linux
others, because the majority of softwares I write is for Windows
I’m familiarized with the Windows environment and this is where I would
do my work if it is possible.
Â Â Â I have to do my diploma work and I have to us an USRP to make an
application, to be able to read some data from a hardware, to show how
it can be
integrated in a system, I’not giving any more details because it’s not
important. My whole project will be written in VisualStudio this is why
to use the Windows environment.
Â Â Â My USRP1 is running, powered, but what’s next? I tried to install
with CygWin and MinGW but no success, then I read something related to
it’s not clear, how much support it brings for USRP1, and what I will be
do, or how to use it.
Â Â Â Could anyone (those who have installed successfully GNU Radio or
UHD)Â to explain in some big (or detaild)Â steps what they have done. How
started USRP1, how they read out some values. For example if I will use
Bluetooth module, ZigBee module or any custom made module using some
protocol (something simple to be able to implement it) and I will send
(a single byte to use bits from it for switching different devices,
import), how I could receive that data? What should I do (OK, I make a
script that will read data out of the USB port of the USRP1 and what
should I do
with it to pass it to my application [maybe I could make a stream to
data or a file]Â because I want to use it in real world application)?
are persons who already made this and could help with a few ideas.
Â Â Â Now, please don’t think that I wantÂ anyone of you to solveÂ any
I might encounter, or to make my job, I only wantÂ some help, some basic
from those who really used GNU Radio in Windows environment, after that
understand in big steps how it’s working and I will be able to install
or configure UHD than I will be able to make my project.Â MaybeÂ with a
ideasÂ will be more clear to me how this (USRP1, daughterboards, Windows,
Python, VisualStudio)Â is workingÂ and it will help other people to
to have something in written form therefore this questions will be never
again (I saw that many people asked these questions or something
Â Â Â Â I only want some ideas like (ex: you can get the files to install
there, don’t get them from other places because are not trustfull or
that because it could crash the whole installation process).
Â Â Â I hope that your answers will make all this more clear not only for
Â Â Â Thank you very much to all those who are so kind to give an answer.
to all of you a wonderfull day.
