Puerto Rico is host to many interesting sights: lush greenery covering rolling hills as far as the eye can see, emergency first responder vehicles that always have their lights flashing even when not on call, the best crab turnovers, and the Arecibo Radio Observatory – the world's largest single-dish radio telescope. As luck would have it, multiple Ettus Research USRP N210s are now connected to the telescope for the purpose of communicating with an all-but-forgotten 36 year old NASA space probe known as the International Cometary Explorer.

During a recent business trip to Europe I had the opportunity to do a bit of sightseeing in London. I was also fortunate enough to visit on a warm sunny day, which has been a bit of a rarity this year. While walking through town, I realized that I had all of the components I needed to do some quick experiments with my SDR (software defined radio) near the important landmarks – Big Ben, the London Bridge, etc. This is a short write-up about my experiences in London, my stop on the "USRP World Tour".

Earlier this month, Ettus Research announced its newest addition to the USRP software defined radio family – the release of the USRP ™ X300 and X310. So far, the community has expressed excitement about the product and its high-performance nature.  We thought we would take opportunity to highlight features, discuss the new applications this series enables, and paint a picture of how it fits into the overall Ettus Research product portfolio.

Inspired by the capabilities of the new USRP B200 Software Defined Radio, our own Balint Seeber – Ettus Research Applications Engineer by day and SDR wizard by night, set out to show what the new USRP is capable of with a broad frequency coverage from 70 MHz – 6 GHz, a bandwidth of 56 MHz, and entirely USB 3.0 bus powered, board-only design. We didn't see Balint for a week after we handed him the B200 device. I did have the chance to interview him when he got back.  Here's his story:

Corgan Labs is one of several partners you will find in the USRP ecosystem.  Founded by Johnathan Corgan, long-time release manager of the GNU Radio[link] project, Corgan Labs offers SDR training and application design services.  Recently, Corgan Labs adopted the Ettus Research Instant SDR Kit as a standardized training platform.  Now, attendees can receive low-cost hardware, be up and running quickly for the course, and continue designing with the hardware after the course is complete.

Ettus Research has released the USRP Instant SDR Kit, a low-cost kit with all of the components to get started with SDR quickly.  This is a great way to get involved with the growing open source community!

We have recently announced the QR210 Quadradio.  This is a four-channel, coherent receive intend for applications such as beamforming and direction finding (RF localization).

As wireless technology becomes more pervasive in the lives of everyday citizens, the electro-magnetic spectrum becomes increasingly over-crowded. Driven by an escalating demand for mobile data capability, experts in the wireless industry are scrambling to find techniques to satisfy these with the limited amount of RF spectrum that is available. It is very clear that technology must evolve to use this spectrum more efficiently.  The USRP product family has, and will continue to be, a platform that contributors use to develop the technologies that improve the spectral effeciency of our wireless devices.
