I put their latest driver and a pdf user guide on my website. These are freely available from them. They are at:




The tar file contains the driver and there is a manual of the API in the doc section.

How difficult do you think it would be to write the interface, based on the information I link to above? Is there a template I could use to look into writing it?

I was curious what would be involved in getting gnuradio to run on any

We have a number of these in the lab, and I would be interested in using
them in a gnuradio-based oscilloscope type fashion.  These boards are
capable of streaming data using the Linux drivers.

On the face of it there doesn't seem to be any reason you couldn't write
a C++ GNU Radio source block that interfaces with the Linux driver.  But
there was no software driver spec available on the page you linked to
really say.  The complexity of the GNU Radio block is in direct
proportion to how complicated they make their streaming interface.
