New USRP Instant SDR Kit Sets New Standards for Price, Performance and Ease-of-Use

Ettus Research™, a National Instruments (NI) company since 2010, has led the way with accessible SDR (Software-defined radio) platforms for nearly a decade.  Driven by the open-source SDR community, the Ettus Research USRP™ (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) has accelerated cutting edge wireless research, served as an academic tool for future engineers, and has even been deployed in real-world communication systems.  Ettus Research continues to break barriers to SDR prototyping with the “USRP Instant SDR Kit”. With this kit you can boot your computer with the LiveUSB SDR Environment, and plug in the USRP B100. In an instant, you’ll be able to experiment with sample projects, design your own SDR applications, and contribute to a growing community of enthusiasts and professionals.

The Instant SDR Kit starts at $675 (US MSRP)
