Hi Jiayi,

all USRPs use the UHD driver framework; from an application's perspective, it really doesn't matter whether you're using a USRP 1, 2, N200, X300, B200 or the integrated radios of the E-Series. Normally, applications do not even care what kind of USRP is connected :)

The only thing that could go wrong is that if the GNU Radio project was based on libusrp or libusrp2, the predecessors of UHD, it won't work with modern hardware. But then again, that software is very old, and won't work with modern GNU Radio anyway, and numerous examples have shown that compilation of software that old on modern systems is complicated due to missing dependencies.

The question you need to ask is whether that software uses UHD (in the shape of gr-uhd) -- if that's the case, it will work with any USRP of the past and the foreseeable future.

>Additionally, are there any other hardware compatibility issues among these products?

Well, a USRP N200 is not a B200 is not an X310... as they all have different specs, obviously they all can't fit the same needs.

Dear all,

I found most existed projects were based on USRP2 and some current on-going project are using N200/210. It seems to me that both of these two models have similar hardware specification, but USRP2 is out of market, isn't it?

If a GNURadio based software packages was developed for USRP2, does it also works compatible with N200/210? How about the X300/310 model? 

Additionally, are there any other hardware compatibility issues among these products?

Many thanks in advance.
