Hello Ali,

That "bandwidth" parameter of the UHD Source/Sink block is used to adjust the 
'analog bandwidth' of the 'daughterboard'. Most of the daughterboards have a 
fixed analog bandwidth, so that parameter will be simply ignored in most cases 
('uhd_usrp_probe' will give the detailed info about the daughterboard). They 
are not used to configure digital filter taps.

If you want to add digital filters, you can simply add them on GNU Radio as 
seperate blocks. Software FIR/IIR filters are pretty slow, but they can keep up 
when the sampling rate is that low. If you want to push down some codes to the 
FPGA, consider RFNoC.

제목: Re: [Discuss-gnuradio] USRP DDC and GNURadio Bandwidth Problem


I don't want my sampling rate to be 25 kHz. My sampling rate is already 195312 
Hz which is I think the minimum sampling rate for X310.

What I want is to filter out the frequencies which are at least 25 kHz away 
from my center frequency. For example I don't want to see a transmission which 
is 50 kHz away from my center frequency. Is it possible? How does the 
"bandwidth" parameter in UHD Source Block in GNURadio affect the captured IQ

Hello Ali,

To extend what Marcus has said, here is a link to the UHD manual page about 
sample rates.

Hi Ali,

just like the console will tell you, 25 kS/s is simply impossible with
an X310; instead, the minimum possible rate was used.

You should probably just configure your X310 to get you e.g. 500 kS/s,
and then resample in digital domain. If you're hesitant to design your
own decimating filter, use the "rational resampler" block and configure
it to decimate by (500/25)=20.

Best regards,
