I am using a RFX2400 card and wanted to use USRP2 to sample a BW of
50MHz, in ISM band. If I am correct, by default, USRP2 uses a total of
32 bits/sample (16 bit I and 16 bit Q). For looking at a BW of 50MHz, I
would need 50MS/s which will be equal to 50MS/s x 32 bit/sample =
1600Mbps. This is beyond the limit of Gbit Ethernet. Is there a way I
can use 8 bit samples, and use a decimation by 2 to capture 50MHz. If
yes, what steps do I need to follow to achieve these two things. Just to
mention it, I am using usrp_rx_cfile command.
p.s. Is there any other way for reading 50MHz and writing it to a file
other than the one above?
