NI Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) devices are software defined radios (SDR) used for RF applications. NI USRP transceivers can transmit and receive RF signals in several bands, and you can use them for applications in communications education and research. Paired with the LabVIEW development environment, USRPs provide an affordable solution that lets you validate wireless algorithms with over-the-air signals.

Software Defined Radio Platform—The LabVIEW design environment with NI USRP™ (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) hardware and courseware provides students hands-on experiences in wireless and digital communications. Cover introductory teaching to advanced research topics using graphical system design and integrate your .m file script algorithms to design a complete wireless communications system.
