USRP 2901 Based FM Transceiver with Large File Capabilities in Virtual and Remote Laboratory
The radio signal processing capability can be provided by Universal software radio peripheral (USRP) hardware. The received signal frequency can be controlled and transmitting the signal through wireless is possible by installing NI USRP utility configuration. The programmable USRP was running VI snippet program in block diagram panel with radio companion integrated through USB cable on windows 7 64 bit OS. With the parameters such as IQ rate, transmitter gain, carrier frequency along with device name which is given as ni2901_1 the students can able to tune the radio signal. In addition to this the students can able to record the FM signal and extract the IQ data and plot the spectrum of signal and analyze it using graph palette. The standard FM equation contains the modulation index, carrier frequency, message signal amplitude, frequency deviation and frequency sensitivity can also analyzed using LabVIEW. By using Carson’s rule the bandwidth of wideband FM signal can be calculated. In this project RF0 module is used USRP device is connected with dual band vertical antenna with 2.4 and 5GHz frequency as Tx1 and the receiver is connected to Tri band vertical antenna with 144, 400 and 1200 MHz. while transmitting red color will blink in the device for transmitting and green color indicates the received signal. The purpose of doing this experiment was to gain experience in signal processing and receive hands on experience with the USRP. This VI snippet program will support all file formats. Up sample we used in front panel should be -1 always and if large size files is transmitted the value should be increased. The iPhone received the signal with high quality using ear pods the students can able to listen all the information which is transmitted through USRP. Here the transmitted frequency we used in the front panel is 94.7 MHz. The transmitted signal through USRP is successfully tested in the campus of Institute of Aeronautical Engineering, Hyderabad, India.
