Make sure your radio hardware is configured for host-radio communication by following the steps in Guided Host-Radio Hardware Setup.

Create a radio object for your radio hardware. For example:

dev = sdrdev('AD936x')
dev = 
  SDRDevAD936x with properties:

     IPAddress: ''
    DeviceName: 'AD936x'

Use this object to get radio hardware information.

## Establishing connection to hardware. This process can take several seconds.
ans = struct with fields:
       Status: 'Full information'
       libiio: 'Host version: 0.17.g5bdc242'
          HDL: 'PCORE Version: 10.0b'
    Bitstream: 'Custom bitstream loaded, Path: /mnt/system.bit, MD5: 1c52c1d612b05eb53b23dd2a9474d8d2'

Input Arguments

Interface to radio hardware, specified as one of the following objects:

To create these objects, use the sdrdev function.

Output Arguments

Information about the radio hardware specified by dev, returned as a structure array.


Before calling the info function, make sure the SD card configured during hardware setup is inserted into the reader of the radio hardware. You can also configure an SD card by using the downloadImage function.
