National Instruments Releases Teaching Solution for University Educators

By DE Editors

National Instruments has announced the NI USRP-2920 and NI USRP-2921 instruments, offering a new educational platform that delivers a hands-on learning experience with real-world signals to RF and communications university labs, which previously relied on computer-based simulation to augment theory.

The new platform, consisting of NI universal software radio peripheral (USRP) hardware, NI LabVIEW software and lab-ready course material, provides educators with an off-the-shelf solution that exposes students to practical application of abstract mathematical theories learned in traditional lecture.  

The NI USRP devices feature a software-tunable front end ranging from 50 MHz to 2.2 GHz or the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz ISM bands. The hardware also integrates a software reconfigurable RF transceiver with high-speed A/D and D/A converters, which makes it possible to stream baseband I and Q signals to a host PC over Gigibit Ethernet at up to 20 MS/s.
