Ettus Research, a National Instruments brand, is proud to announce the USRP N320 and USRP N321 software defined radios (SDRs). These high-performing, stand-alone SDRs deliver frequency coverage from 3 MHz to 6 GHz with 200 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth per channel. With reliability and fault tolerance and the ability to share local oscillators and multiple synchronization methods, the USRP N320 and N321 are ideal for deploying phase-coherent wireless systems.
The baseband processor uses the Xilinx Zynq-7100 SoC to deliver a large user programmable FPGA for real-time and low-latency processing and a dual-core ARM CPU for stand-alone operation. Users can deploy applications directly onto the preinstalled embedded Linux OS or stream samples to a host computer using high-speed interfaces such as 1 Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and Aurora over two SFP+ ports and a QSFP+ port.
The open source USRP Hardware Driver (UHD) API and RF Network-on-Chip (RFNoC) FPGA development framework reduce software development effort and integrate with a variety of industry-standard tools such as GNU Radio. Users can rapidly prototype and reliably deploy designs for a variety of SDR applications such as wireless testbed, remote radio head, spectrum monitoring, and more.
