[USRP-users] Bandwidth limitation

The per-direction bandwidth limit over 1GiGe is 25Msps, assuming 16-bit
samples. If you use sc8
 samples, that goes up to 50Msps. That's an aggregate number. If you're
streaming from both antenna connectors, divide-by-2. 

But that's just the physical limit of the 1GiGe interface. How much you
*can actually process* is more a function of your host 

 computer than the "bus" interface.

> Hello , 
> I am using USRP N210 with LFTX and LFRX daughter boards connected with the host computer via an Ethernet connection. 
> According to this tutorial provided by Ettus , 
> http://www.ettus.com/kb/detail/usrp-bandwidth [2] 
> I can say that bandwidth is around 20 MHz and this limit is set by the Ethernet connection. 
> Here , I have a question : 
> For each LFTX and LFRX , there are two antenna (or two channel A & B). 
> If I am using only one channel (A or B) from each daughterboard (One Tx channel and one Rx channel ), Does it mean that bandwidth will remain the same to be equal = 20 MHz or 20MHz/(No of channels) ?! 
> According to that, every channel should have a bandwidth below a certain value. How can I calculate this threshold value ?! 
> I have the same question if I am going to use both antennas from both daughter boards ?! 
> Any Suggestion !! 
> Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
