Issue Details

I'm looking at the USRP-2940r device.  The documentation shows that it has two separate daughterboards, does this mean that I can transmit/receive at two different frequencies at the same time?

Solution

Yes, the RF0 and RF1 channels do not share a Local Oscillator (LO), and therefore can be tuned to different frequencies within the range of the device.

Additional Information

Rx1 and Rx2 within the same channel cannot be tuned to different frequencies as they share the same LO.
