Averna Technologies has announced the availability of RF Studio for National Instruments Software Defined Radio Platform (USRP), converting the USRP into a portable RF system for the recording and playback of real-world GNSS signals.
 
National Instruments USRP is a PC-hosted platform used with NI LabVIEW system design software to build wireless communications systems for research and education. RF Studio is Averna’s proprietary software platform designed to streamline work with real-world RF signals. According to the company, it provides user-friendly modules for capturing, processing, analyzing, archiving, and playing back RF spectrum while also maintaining the signal-recording context.
 
Working together, Averna and National Instruments teams developed RF Studio for the USRP to record and play back live RF environments that can help accelerate RF project work. RF Studio’s LabVIEW-compatible plug-in support provides access to a toolset for their in-house applications, and supports additional capture sources and customized views.
 
“We’ve been working very closely with the NI teams to bring this innovative solution to market, and we expect great success from this solution partnership,” said Brendan Wolfe, director of market development for Averna.
 
RF Studio for the USRP features include:
·  record and play back of real-world RF signals, up to 40 megahertz wide
·  capture of actual RF spectrum such as FM, DAB, GPS, GLONASS, and cellular
·  visualize and record weak signals with the “Noise Figure” view
·  advance signal analysis with the “Spectrum,” “Histogram,” and “Power” views
·  use simple RF-chain configuration tools to quickly detect and set up the recording environment
·  DriveViewTM option: Log video, audio and NMEA data at the same time as recording RF
 
RF Studio for the USRP is available now to customers worldwide through National Instruments’ LabVIEW Tools Network.
