Re: [Discuss-gnuradio] VIA USB-2 combo card card, not working on linux for usrp
Thu, 7 Jun 2007 12:29:03 -0400 (EDT)
I have an Adaptec DuoConnect AUA-1422 combo card with an NEC USB2 chipset.
Using Mandriva 2007 spring on a Dell Latitude C840 with Pentium 4 m 2.6
GHz cpu I only get 16 MB/s transfer as determined by benchmark_usb.py. A
little dissapointed, specially as I'm experiencing uO's with my latest
4-channel receiver app.

But using linux I can't get it to work.
I get usrp overruns, (uOuOuO) even with decimation factors of 200 when using
This is only 320 ksamples/sec
with top I see that the CPU is 80 % idle, so that is not the problem.
When running benchmark_usb.py I get slightly better performance, 2 MB/sec works
and 4 MB/sec works sometimes, all above fail.
I don't know why benchmark_usb works better then usrp_rx_cfile.
When I run usrp_wfm_rcv_nogui.py I get garbled sound and uO and aU, but this is
logical. The script doesn't get enough data from the USRP.
On windows usrp_rx_cfile.py just works fine with the same usb-2 card. (This is
a much older gnuradio/usrp release though)
Does anybody have a clue, what is wrong here.
I tried both kernel 2.6.18 and 2.6.20. I also tried noacpi acpi=off apm=off as
Or does anybody have a suggestion of an USB-2 addon card for a notebook
(pccard) that works with the USRP.
