sdrdev

Create radio object for specific radio hardware

Description

example

list = sdrdev returns a list of available SDR devices. The returned list does not reflect which radios are attached to the host.

example

dev = sdrdev(DeviceName) creates a radio object to interface the radio hardware identified by DeviceName. This object enables you to configure the radio hardware and host computer for proper communication.

To receive or transmit data through the radio, you must create a receiver or a transmitter System object™. For more details, see the sdrrx and sdrtx functions.

Examples

collapse all

list = sdrdev

list =

  1×1 cell array

    'Pluto'

Query for a list of available radio implementations.

sdrdev
Choose an SDR device.  Available SDR devices are:
	'Pluto'

Create a radio object for the ADALM-PLUTO radio.

dev = sdrdev('Pluto');
dev = 

  SDRDevPluto with properties:

       RadioID: 'usb:0'
    DeviceName: 'Pluto'

Input Arguments

collapse all

Name of radio hardware, specified as a character vector. Currently, 'Pluto' is the only valid input in this support package.

Example: 'Pluto'

Output Arguments

collapse all

Interface to the radio hardware, returned as a radio object. For more about the radio object methods and properties, see comm.SDRDevPluto.

Software defined radio names, specified as an n-by-1 cell array of character vectors. n is the number of available SDR devices. The list includes 'Pluto' which is the device name for the radio hardware associated with the Communications Toolbox™ Support Package for Analog Devices® ADALM-Pluto Radio.
