96 MHz bandwidth

Post by andrew77 »

96MHz of bandwidth with bladeRF
Nuand has developed a method of increasing the bladeRF’s spectrum analysis bandwidth up to 124MHz. This software-only change takes advantage of the bladeRF’s advanced hardware design, and requires only a few additional changes to osmocom-sdr, and GQRX. With 96MHz it is possible to monitor the entirety of the 2.4GHz ISM band and not miss any Bluetooth or WiFi frames.

Are those changes already included in the official GNU Radio and Gqrx projects?

Looking more into it:
  • For gr-osmosdr, the Nuand version is a copy of the Feb 29, 2016 official repo
  • For Gqrx, the Nuand version is a copy of the May 3, 2016 official repo
In both cases it looks like the modifications never made it to the official repo, and the 2 Nuand repos are not being updated.

Is there a plan to have those changes merged to the official repos?

I guess it's linked to https://www.nuand.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3687 where jynik called it a POC.
