The USRP B200mini delivers a 1×1 SDR/cognitive radio in the size of a business card. With a wide frequency range from 70 MHz to 6 GHz and a user-programmable Xilinx Spartan-6 XC6SLX75 FPGA, this flexible and compact platform is ideal for both hobbyist and OEM applications. The similar Ettus USRP B205mini-i is an industrial temperature version with a larger FPGA for more advanced applications.
The RF front end uses the Analog Devices AD9364 RFIC transceiver with 56 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth. The board is bus-powered by a high-speed USB 3.0 connection for streaming data to the host computer. The USRP B200mini also includes connectors for GPIO, JTAG, and synchronization with a 10 MHz clock reference or PPS time reference input signal.
Experimentation with Low-cost SDR
Experiment with the USRP B200mini across a wide range of applications including: FM and TV broadcast, cellular, GPS, WiFi, ISM, and more. Users can immediately begin prototyping in GNU Radio and participate in the open-source SDR community. Full support by the USRP Hardware Driver™ (UHD) software allows seamless code reuse from existing designs, compatibility with open-source applications like HDSDR and OpenBTS, and an upgrade path to industry-ready USRP systems to meet application requirements.
The hardware is conveniently accessible through the USRP Hardware Driver (UHD). UHD provides both a C/C++ and Python API that supports all USRP products and enables users to efficiently develop applications then seamlessly transition designs between platforms as requirements expand. UHD also offers cross-platform support for multiple industry standard development environments and frameworks, including RFNoC, LabVIEW, and MATLAB/Simulink. To ensure you have no restrictions on how you use UHD, it is available on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS. Do you prefer graphical programming? Try out GNU Radio, a free and open-source software development framework offering a graphical design approach.
