We are happy to invite you to join us at two day Open Source Software Defined Radio workshop utilizing the Ettus Research USRP software defined radio system and open source toolchains. The OSSDR Workshop, features a full schedule of talks and Hands-on designed to take you from introduction of SDR concepts to implementation on a USRP SDR platform.
Open source software defined radio solutions can accelerate the path from first prototype to broadbase deployment of wireless systems by utilizing a flexible industry standard set of platforms well integrated with open source frameworks. USRP SDR platforms range from low cost and portable to high performance using a common set of platform independent open source software drivers for wireless research. By supporting a wide variety of development environments on an expansive portfolio of high performance RF hardware, the USRP platform is most preferred SDR platform for thousands of engineers, scientists and students worldwide for algorithm development, exploration, prototyping and developing next generation wireless technologies across a wide variety of applications.
The open-source GNU Radio framework helps engineers interface with hundreds of active members supporting other users and growing the code base. Through this open-source community, GNU Radio software continues to evolve and address more applications including RF and communications system design encompassing both MAC and PHY research, spectrum monitoring and signal intelligence, and wireless sensors and tracking.
Among other software options, engineers can program with a graphical system design approach using NI LabVIEW software. NI and Ettus offer a complete platform with an option to reuse existing software tools for simplified programming in a unified design flow that scales from design to deployment. The Open Source Software Defined Radio Workshop provides a great opportunity to learn about the power behind the SDR platform and the open source tools that are being used in the latest wireless communication research. Learn how you can join the wireless open source community and accelerate your time to results with the USRP platform.
Laptop Computers & USRP Radios:
Attendees do not have to bring any laptop computers or USRP radios to the event. All necessary hardware and software will be provided in the workshop. Attendees may optionally bring their own personal laptops and/or USRP radios for use in the workshop, but this is not required. Attendees who are interested in doing this should contact "firstname.lastname@example.org
" for specific setup and configuration requirements.
