Comtech EF Data Corp.'s AHA Products Group announced today, the successful demonstration of a complete DVB-S2X Modem in the Ettus X310 USRP™ Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform.
The Wireless Symposium @ Virginia Tech is an annual event where leaders and researchers from the wireless community meet and discuss latest developments. Ettus Research has been a part of this for a long time,and attended this year's symposium with a few members of our R&D team.
Congratulations to Matt Ettus, President and Founder of Ettus Research, for his tremendous accomplishment on winning the International Achievement Award.
Software defined radios (SDR) are not a novel concept; the original concept of a software radio first appeared thirty years ago. Due to the high cost of SDR hardware, though, software radio platforms really haven't been available as 'consumer' devices until recently. The wide availability of software defined radios for students, engineers & scientists, and hobbyists, was really kicked off by Matt Ettus in 2004. Since then, the use of the software defined radio has proliferated through many fields of communications and electronics.
Visit the Ettus Research booth at WInnComm 2015 for a chance to win a USRP B200 and a spot in a SDR training course, brought to you by Ettus Research, Cogran Labs, and GNU Radio.
10 years have passed since the release of the USRP platform. Matt Ettus sat with me to recap how it all began and what's in store for the future of the USRP platform.
Ettus Research, a National Instruments company, today unveiled the USRP E310 software defined radio (SDR) platform that integrates a flexible 2x2 MIMO RF transceiver, reconfigurable DSP oriented FPGA, and a dual core ARM processor running embedded Linux for stand-alone, deployed SDR applications.
