Docker-REDHAWK USRP Demo

Some Quick History The last time we demoed bringing the B205mini into REDHAWK, it was again using Docker to containerize an environment conducive for a more recent version of UHD. Back then, we were working in different constraints: REDHAWK 2.0.2 CentOS 6.7 64-bit One constraint required the other, and the other required an older version […]

Introduction to Docker-REDHAWK

Introduction Over the past couple of years we have showcased a few demos where we use Docker images and containers to stand up various capabilities, like utilizing the latest version of UHD for our Ettus Research USRP hardware like the B205mini USB3 transceiver. So recently, we decided to revamp the capability to make it even […]

Docker-based REDHAWK Components

Introduction One of the things we have been asked many times is how to wrap a REDHAWK Component with some container-based solution like Docker. Such a capability would put the Component into a different runtime environment than the General Purpose Processor (GPP) that was executing it. Now, let your mind wander a bit on what […]

Analog Devices FMCOMMS via Yocto

Recently, we developed a capability that combined an Analog Devices FMCOMMS3 dual-transceiver FMC card with a Xilinx ZC706 Development kit and represents that system as a combined REDHAWK FrontEnd Interfaces and Persona Device. The ZC706 is another Xilinx Zynq -based system similar to the more common ZedBoard and ZC702 development kits except that it provides […]
