[USRP-users] noise figure of USRP2 using simulink

Hello Jorge,

You can use the Spectrum Scope block to plot the mean-squared spectrum, in units of power.  The default is to plot the power spectral density, in units of dBW/Hz, but you can easily change that setting.  Although you can't export that data to the MATLAB workspace, you can easily read off the values in the figure.

Subject: [USRP-users] noise figure of USRP2 using simulink

Dear all,

I am going to measure NF of the USRP2 with one of the transceivers.

I would like to measure increments of power in different FFT's with different USRP2 settings.

For example I want to measure the receiver power of the USRP2 when a noise source connected to the USRP2 is ON and OFF.

My problem is that I do not know how to export the data from the SPECTRUM SCOPE (which I use to compute the FFT) to the workplace. Since I need to measure the increment of power in the same bin of the FFT I need to know the different bins of the FFT.

How can I do it?
