1>    USRP E100 Now on Sale

We are pleased to introduce another new addition to the USRP family of
products.  The USRP E100 software radio is an embedded stand-alone 
system powered by the combination of a Gumstix Overo board with 720 MHz 
OMAP3 (containing both an ARM Cortex A8 processor & TI C64x+ DSP) and a
Xilinx Spartan 3A-DSP1800 FPGA.

The USRP E100 series runs a full distribution of Linux enabling both
development and deployment without the need for a host computer.
The analog baseband is has dual 64 MS/s 12-bit ADCs, and dual 128 MS/s
14-bit DACs.


Other exciting new features:

- Works with all of our daughterboards

- Flexible clocking -- The user can choose (at run time) a convenient
clock rate, which is typically a multiple of the symbol time.  For
example, the user can set the clock to 52 MHz for GSM applications,
61.44 MHz for UMTS, or 64 MHz for general purpose applications.

- An on-board TCXO keeps the master clock and RF signals within a
couple of parts per million.

- The master reference can be locked to an external 5 or 10 MHz reference

- The large Spartan 3A DSP FPGA allows for accelerating significant
parts of the signal flow

- The UHD drivers work on the USRP E100, so existing UHD-enabled
applications should work out-of-the-box.

- USRP 2.0 Host and On-The-Go ports, for keyboard and mouse, or extra 
storage

- Ethernet (10/100 Mbps) networking

- HDMI Video output for hooking up a monitor

- Audio in and out for voice applications


The introductory price for the USRP E100 is $1300, and shipments will
start in mid December.

3>    SDR'10 Conference and GNU Radio Meeting

The SDR'10 Conference will be held from November 30th through December
3rd.  Like last year, Ettus Research will be sponsoring a GNU Radio
Meeting, which will now be a formal part of the program on Wed December
1st.  You do not need to attend the rest of the conference to attend
this meeting.

Ettus Research will also have a booth in the Expo area of the
conference, and we will be demonstrating both the USRP E100 and N210.
