Re: FPGA Firmware 0.8.0

How can I force BladerRF to use new FPGA ? I have downloaded new firmware from /fpga/v0.8.0/hostedxA4.rbf into /usr/share/Nuand/bladeRF/, next I did: bladerf-cli -L /usr/share/Nuand/bladeRF/hostedxA4.rbf and finally rebooted computer, but bladerf-cli version still shows: bladeRF> version bladeRF-cl...

Re: Transfer timed out for buffer

Can you try a different USB 3.0 port (that is connected to a different controller)? Or a different host altogether? Usually these types of problems are a lack of processing power on the host or a crappy USB controller. Sometimes the problem can be alleviated by tweaking the buffer size, number of bu...

Re: SoapySDR No Devices Found

Have you tried getting the latest SoapySDR and libbladeRF? You may have to build from source. I'm being told that SoapySDR is indeed released and compatible with the latest libbladeRF.

Re: SoapySDR No Devices Found

If I'm not mistaken, SoapySDR is still in the process of updating their stuff to support the new version of libbladeRF. That could be what's happening here.

Use this for now. I've contacted the web guy to update the page. Sorry about that!

Re: BladeRF 2 micro flash issues

"Soft loading" is much faster than SPI loading and with host-based autoloading enabled it's virtually seamless. For SPI flash loading to work (at present), you have to unplug the board, plug it back in and wait several seconds for the lights to turn on before trying to open the device with bladeRF-c...

Re: Seems that the BT-100 is not (currently) backwards compatible with the bladeRF 1.0.

If injecting 5 V into J3, I highly recommend removing FB1 because backfeeding 5V DC into the bladeRF Classic could burn out the ESD protection diodes that are located before the DC-blocking capacitors. This may be true for many other transceivers as well. The CLI will not allow you to enable/disable...

Re: BLADERF_FORMAT_SC16_Q11_META Format

Gotcha, sorry. The META stuff is ignored in the CLI, but you might be able to enable it with a few modifications. Take a look at host/utilities/bladeRF-cli/src/cmd/rx.c. Line 221 shows bladerf_sync_rx() with the metadata pointer parameter set to NULL: https://github.com/Nuand/bladeRF/blob/d9626a800c...
