Averna has revealed the availability of RF Studio for National Instruments Software Defined Radio Platform (USRP), converting the USRP into a portable and cost-effective RF system for the recording and playback of real-world GNSS signals.

According to NI, its USRP is an affordable, PC-hosted platform used with NI LabVIEW system design software to build powerful wireless communications systems for research and education. RF Studio is Averna's proprietary software platform aimed to streamline work with real-world RF signals that promises user-friendly modules for capturing, processing, analysing, archiving and playing back RF spectrum while maintaining the signal-recording context.

Working together, Averna and NI teams developed RF Studio for the USRP, a portable solution to record and play back live RF environments to accelerate RF project work. RF Studio's LabVIEW compatible plug-in support claims to deliver great value to LabVIEW users as it gives them quick access to a rich toolset for their in-house applications, and supports additional capture sources and customised views.

The RF Studio for the USRP allows recording and playing back real-world RF signals up to 40MHz wide; enables capture of actual RF spectrum such as FM, DAB, GPS, GLONASS and cellular; and is capable of visualizing and recording weak signals with the Noise Figure view. In addition, it features advance signal analysis with the Spectrum, Histogram and Power views; allows the use of simple RF-chain configuration tools to quickly detect and set up the recording environment; and boasts the DriveView option to log video, audio and NMEA data at the same time as recording RF.

RF Studio for the USRP is available to customers worldwide through NI's LabVIEW Tools Network.
