Cognitive Radio Platform, USRP2

Universal software radio peripheral

Universal software radio peripheral (USRP) is a hardware platform for implementing software defined radio (SDR). SDR can be implemented on USRPs using GNU Radio open source software. USRP2s are an extension to the USRP and they employ Gigabit Ethernet interface instead of USB connection which is lot faster than old USRPs.

USRP2s have two 100 MS/s 14-bit analog to digital converters and two 400 MS/s 16-bit digital to analog converters they also support one RX/TX daughter board. Daughter boards are available for nearly from 50 MHz to 5.9 GHz frequency range.


Wireless Sensor and Robot Networks

CWN-Lab's Wireless Sensor Network Testbed includes Imote2 sensor motes, including basic sensor boards (ITS400) and multimedia boards (IMB400). It also includes several Surveyor SRV-1 Blackfin robots.
