Ettus Research Releases Software Defined Radio Platforms Featuring Kintex-7 FPGA
The USRP X300 and USRP X310 feature 2x2 multiple input, multiple output and set new industry benchmarks for performance, flexibility and cost
Both the USRP X300 and USRP X310 leverage the Kintex-7 family of FPGAs from Xilinx. The USRP X300 uses the XC7K325T, and the USRP X310 is based on the larger XC7K410T. Kintex-7 FPGAs integrate up to 1,540 DSP48 slices operating in parallel so USRP users can deploy custom or third-party signal processing algorithms onto each device. Users can process data in real time using their own DSP algorithms such as filters, modulators/demodulators and coders/decoders. They can also access and control the wide range of peripherals available on each USRP, including the RF front ends.
"The USRP X310 and USRP X300 significantly extend the USRP product family to a new level in capability and processing power," said Matt Ettus, founder and president of Ettus Research. "Offering unprecedented levels of real-time signal processing power and RF bandwidth, the USRP X310 and USRP X300 can now address applications such as next generation 5G wireless standard prototyping, multichannel spectrum scanning and analysis and even active radar prototyping and development."
- Two wide-bandwidth RF transceiver slots with up to 120 MHz of real-time bandwidth
- 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express bus options for high-bandwidth, low-latency operation
- Large customizable Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA for high performance DSP
- GNU Radio support through the open source UHD
