Regarding Transceiver design on GNUradio

Post by amit12 » Mon Sep 15, 2014 10:55 am

Dear all,
I am working on re-configurable Software defined radio based multiband transceiver (initially for ISM band 2.4 GHz).for that i am using GNU Radio for software design .For hardware design i come to know that Development Boards (i)USRP Motherboard (ii)RFX2400 or SBX40 or CBX40 are required .
my quires are
(1) Is GNU radio software is sufficient for full transceiver design ?
(2) What other components are required in the hardware circuits?
(3) What is the cost of USRP motherboard, RFX2400,SBX40 and CBX40 ?
(4) Any other software /hardware options are there?

Thanks in advance

Hi amit,

I was studying GNU Radio and trying to use it for reciever alone using rtlsdr. Frankly, i have not used it seriously. However i am using gqrx with rtlsdr for listening. I am interested in learning alongside and thank you very much for posting about it and providing details about the req. hardware.
I will keep you posted if i came to know TXRX design.

Gqrx is also using GNU radio library modules it seems. You can also use quisk. it can be used for TX also... bit difficult to configure
