Simple pythonic wrapper for SoapySDR library

Project description

Simple pythonic wrapper for SoapySDR library



Only receiving is implemented. Transmission may be implemented in future.


import simplesoapy
import numpy

# List all connected SoapySDR devices

# Initialize SDR device
sdr = simplesoapy.SoapyDevice('driver=rtlsdr')

# Set sample rate
sdr.sample_rate = 2.56e6

# Set center frequency
sdr.freq = 88e6

# Setup base buffer and start receiving samples. Base buffer size is determined
# by SoapySDR.Device.getStreamMTU(). If getStreamMTU() is not implemented by driver,
# SoapyDevice.default_buffer_size is used instead

# Create numpy array for received samples
samples = numpy.empty(len(sdr.buffer) * 100, numpy.complex64)

# Receive all samples

# Stop receiving
