Re: [USRP-users] Problems receiving valid data from a multi_usrp

If you do not need any time synchronization then you can use four separate rx_streamers. The time source (and clock source) will default to internal. Do you have MIMO cables between the N210s? Given that you have four that won't save you from having to have a separate external 10 MHz and PPS to

Hi John, what kind of switching do you mean? *Antenna switching:* that doesn't depend on the X310, but on the daughter board, since the microwave switch doing that resides on the individual daughterboards. Anyway, these times should be in the nanoseconds. You can use timed commands with UHD to

You can use rx_multi_samples as an example -- the source code is freely available. You'll need to use the "set_rx_freq" (and/or "set_tx_freq") function that is part of any multi_usrp object, also, use timed commands around the tuning commands: usrp->set_command_time(SOME_TIME_IN_NEAR_FUTURE)

It is up to you. You can keep the time stamp from the first packet assuming you consume on packet boundaries (e.g. you consume N whole packets to output one packet). If you don't consume on packet boundaries, it will be easier to throw away the vita time. On Thu, Aug 10, 2017 at 12:23 PM, Jason

Certainly if you can use the latest Ubuntu LTS, use that instead. I have a C6 box talking to an x310 and n210 without issue, but I don't need to support twinRX (which requires 3.10), just the UBX/SBX. It can be done, but given you need the latest uhd version, you may need to source build many

This may be timing-out due to performance issues on your host, or it may be a bug in your code. Have you tried using the the rx_multi_samples example at the same sample rates? 2 x 50Msps is a lot of data, and with the short "packets" on PCIe, your computer will be working fairly hard at

It's default to internal anyway. IF this is a single motherboard, then no external clock sync is required, but you still need the use timed-commands on the tuning. If this is multiple USRP units, then, yes, you'll need to use an external synchronization source in addition to the above--this
