So, like OFDM?
The maximum output power for daughtercards that are compatible with N210
is about +20dBm. You haven't mentioned which daughtercard you're using.
So, if you're operating at 50MHz bandwidth, that's not a lot of power
for each of your 1000 spectral bins. Also, at 50Msps, you can *ONLY*
use 8-bit samples
over the wire, since 1GiGe can only support 50e6 x (8+8) bits/second.
