USRP radio information

Description

example

info = probesdru returns information about the USRP™ radio connected to the host computer. If more than one USRP radio is connected to the host computer, the function returns radio information for the first discovered radio. This function calls the UHD™ application uhd_usrp_probe, provided by Ettus Research™, as a system command and returns the command output.

info = probesdru(IPAddress) returns detailed information on the USRP radio located at the specified IP address.

info = probesdru(serialNum) returns detailed information on the USRP radio with the specified serial number.

example

[info,status] = probesdru(___) also returns the status of the system command execution as the Status output. A nonzero Status value indicates an error. Specify an input argument combination from any of the previous syntaxes.

Get detailed information about the USRP radio connected to the host computer. This function syntax returns radio information for the first radio that the function finds. If more than one radio is connected to the host computer, use the probesdru(IPAddress) or probesdru(serialNum) syntax instead.
