First steps - rtl-sdr

Postby nickoppen » Thu Jul 17, 2014 12:00 pm

I got my RTL2832 dongle working on the parallella.

I used rtl-sdr from http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr. I used the package as is but it is open source so it might serve as a base for doing interesting stuff with the epiphany co-processor.

There are some write ups for the installation process on the pi here: http://m3php.com/2012/10/10/remote-sdr-using-raspberry-pi-rtl_tcp/ and here: http://www.hamradioscience.com/raspberry-pi-as-remote-server-for-rtl2832u-sdr/. The procedure I used on the parallella was the same.

The only quirks were getting the dongle accessible which I still find a bit tricky but once it appears on the output to lsusb then it is good to go.

You also need /usr/local/bin in your path to find the executable.

I used the rtl_tcp to pipe the data stream to my windows box and SDR# http://sdrsharp.com/ to make it audible.

Good luck and have fun.

Very nice!

Is anyone else using rtl-sdr to do something interesting with Parallella? @tnt, @hoernchen?
