[USRP-users] B200 56MHz sample rate

Thanks for the suggestion – I’m using sc16 at the moment. The USB3 is on an
Asus X99-Deluxe Intel X99 (Socket 2011) DDR4 ATX Motherboard, so the chipset
is Intel X99.


I’m not too worried at this moment in time – I now know how to get the B200
running at 56MHz, I’ll look at possible bottlenecks later.

Hi Simon,

I assume you’re sending 24 bit complex data from the B200?

Well, the default data type is what we name "sc16"; signed complex 16bit,
i.e. 32bit per complex sample (short I, short Q). 
For your case, where no oversampling and in-FPGA decimation happens, using a
sc12 on-the-wire format would be possible, indeed.
Just replace "sc16" by "sc12" where you set up your streamer; I'm not 100%
of your application.

Best regards,

That fooled the B200 into offering 56MHz as a sample rate but you’re right –
the controller couldn’t handle it (At least I assume it’s the controller and
not my dodgy software :) ).


32MHz streams superbly so I’ll leave that as the maximum for now.

You should just set the sampling rate to 56e6, and of course, you'll either
need to leave that unspecified, or specify a master clock rate of 56MHz,
Just a small warning: It's very probable that the USB packet rate will bring
your PC's USB3 controller to its knees. 

Best regards,

While Derek is on holiday, can anyone help me get the 56 MHz bandwidth from
my B200? What’s the trick please – at the moment it’s returning possible
rates up to 16MHz, works well at 32MHz though. I would like to see how good
the returned 56MHz is.


Probably just one command somewhere
