- SDR Tutorials
The ORBIT testbed is home to a collection of software defined radio (SDR) device platforms including WARP, rtl-sdr, Ettus Research ( USRP (1), USRP N210, USRP X310, USRP B210), RTL-SDR, Nutaq ZeptoSDR and PicoSDR, and Avnet Zynq SDR. While most of the devices are in the grid, number of sandboxes are also equipped with SDR platforms and are suggested target for SDR learning and running tutorials (especially given that they are usually less busy than the main grid).
Most of the available SDR tutorials are using one of the three software platforms:
- Stand-alone C/C++ programs: USRP2 configration and OML data collection with wiserd, Observing the spectrum and transmitting wideband signals using USRP X310
- GNURadio: As the "workhorse" of the SDR community, GNURadio . The available tutorials that are mostly scripted with [OEDL (version 5.4)] are: Getting Started with GNURadio, working with USRP2 on sandbox3, data transfer using basic modulation or OFDM, MAC protocols adaption, creating custom GNURadio blocks for Nutaq platform and using a bot emulating primary user transmission
- Iris: The OFDM transport and ALOHA MAC tutorials
