NI USRP-29xx with UHD Driver

Updated Feb 19, 2018

Reported In


  • USRP-2920
  • USRP-2901


  • UHD driver

Issue Details

I want to use NI USRP-29xx with other IDE (Integrated Development Environment) then LabVIEW or with open source software, for example GNU Radio, HDSDR, OpenBTS, MATLAB etc. 


Most of IDEs uses UHD (USRP Hardware Driver) driver to communicate with SDR devices. 
All NI USRP devices could be controlled by UHD driver, therefore could be used with any UHD based software or IDE.

  • National Instruments provide technical support only for LabView programming use cases.
  • Some UHD driver releases may be unstable. That may cause hardware damage.
