Product Overview

The USRP-LW N210 provides high-bandwidth, high-dynamic range processing capability. The USRP-LW N210 is intended for demanding communications applications requiring this type of rapid development. The product architecture includes a Xilinx® Spartan® 3A-DSP 3400 FPGA, 100 MS/s dual ADC, 400 MS/s dual DAC and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to stream data to and from host processors.

Main Features

  • Maximum transmission rate:50MS/s
  • Gigabit Ethernet connection
  • MIMO cable connection—based on only one single transceiver link per USRP-LW N210, so MIMO construction must be built by two or more USRP-LW N210s
  • Onboard FPGA processing
  • FPGA:Xilinx Spartan XC3SD3400A
  • ADCs:14-位 100 MS/s
  • DACs: 16-位 400 MS/s
  • Ability to lock an external 5 or 10 MHz reference clock
  • Optional internal GPS servo clock – USRP-LW N210 GPSDO

Detailed performance

A modular design allows the USRP-LW N210 to operate from DC to 6 GHz, while an expansion port allows multiple USRP-LW N210 series devices to be synchronized and used in a MIMO configuration. An optional GPSDO module can also be used to discipline the USRP-LW N210 reference clock to within 0.01 ppm of the worldwide GPS standard.
The USRP-LW N210 can stream up to 50 MS/s to and from host applications. Users can implement custom functions in the FPGA fabric, or in the on-board 32-bit RISC softcore. The USRP-LW N210 provides a larger FPGA than the USRP-LW N200 for applications demanding additional logic, memory and DSP resources. The FPGA also offers the potential to process up to 100 MS/s in both the transmit and receive directions. The FPGA firmware can be reloaded through the Gigabit Ethernet interface.
