There's very little memory in the FPGA.  The FPGA is an Altera EP1C12,
take a look at the data sheet for the details.

If you can figure out how to interface to some kind of memory with the
available 32-pins (assuming 1 Basic Tx, 1 Basic Rx) then yes.

No C++ or Python code ever runs on the USRP.  All of that code runs on the
host computer.

Take a look at this:


Also, you may want to take a look at the USRP schematics.  Directions
for downloading the schematics can be found here
