NI just released the NI USRP-2920 and NI USRP-2921 instruments, which offer a new educational platform for true hands-on learning with real-world signals in university RF and communications labs. The new platform combines the NI universal software radio peripheral (USRP) hardware with LabVIEW and lab-ready course material.
The platform provides educators with an affordable solution that exposes students to practical application of abstract mathematical theories that have traditionally been taught using a theoretical, math-focused approach in which students derive formulas and build simulations. Students can now explore the link between abstract mathematical theory and practical implementation through hands-on experimentation with a working communications system.
