Applications

The AntSDR E200 is designed to be flexible and reconfigurable, allowing users to develop and test their own signal processing algorithms. Here are some common applications.

Libiio

The Libiio API is a key feature of AntSDR E200. It provides a flexible and low-level interface for accessing the device’s functionality, including both the RF transceiver and the processor. This allows developers to create custom software applications that can run directly on the AntSDR device, without the need for a separate host computer.

The Libiio API supports a range of programming languages, including C, Python, and Matlab, and provides a range of functionality such as accessing the device’s ADC/DAC channels, controlling RF parameters, and streaming data over USB or Ethernet. AntSDR with its Libiio interface is a powerful and versatile tool for both amateur and professional SDR applications.

UHD

The USRP Hardware Driver (UHD) is an open-source, cross-platform driver developed for use with USRP devices. UHD provides a consistent API across all USRP models and simplifies the process of developing and deploying SDR applications on the USRP platform.

AntSDR can be considered as a "USRP" device because it supports the UHD (USRP Hardware Driver) API, which is the same API used by USRP devices. This means that AntSDR is compatible with software designed for USRP, and users can easily switch between AntSDR and USRP devices when developing and testing their SDR applications.

AntSDR’s compatibility is a major highlight of the product. It can be seamlessly integrated with other SDR devices such as PlutoSDR or USRP. AntSDR also supports both the Libiio API and the UHD API, providing users with flexible and versatile options for integration with their existing systems. With AntSDR’s compatibility, users can easily incorporate it into their existing workflows and take advantage of its capabilities without the need for significant system changes or investments.

Compatible with Open Source Projects

AntSDR E200 can be used with a number of open source projects that provide software tools and frameworks for developing and testing SDR applications. Here are some specific examples:
