Radio Management

Configure radio using block and System object™ settings

Before transmitting and receiving radio signals, first apply radio hardware parameters and tune radio properties.

Topics

Radio Configuration

Determine which USRP™ radio products to use.

Single Channel Input and Output Operations

Single input single output (SISO) operations use one transceiver only.

Multiple Channel Input and Output Operations

Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) operations use multiple transceiver chains.

Transmit and Receive Using External Clock

An external clock enables you to synchronize the radio with an external clock generator.

Check Radio Connection

Check radio connection to SDRu blocks and System objects.

Run in Offline Mode

Running simulations when no radio is connected.

Query and Set IP Addresses

You can query and set IP address of connected radios.

Detect Underruns and Overruns

To detect underruns and overruns, use the lost sample indicator.

Burst-Mode Buffering

If the SDRu Receiver block or System object is not keeping up with the hardware, you are not processing data in real time.

Data Frame Lengths

Set data frame length in receiver blocks or receiver System objects.

Apply Conditional Execution

To determine whether you receive valid data from the radio hardware, apply conditional execution.

Change Transport Data Rate

Set the transport data rate in blocks or System objects.

Desired Vs. Actual Parameter Values

Actual parameter values can vary from your desired setting.

Supported Data Types

Supported data types for SDRu blocks and System objects.
