2x2 Mimo hardware selection



We want to build a 2x2 mimo communication system. We are looking at following two options

  • Use one USRP-2974 device
  • Use Two flexrio controllers (7935) with two RF adapter modules (5791R).


The criteria for selection is

  1. RF performance
  2. FPGA resources available
  3. Processor 
  4. Power consumption
  5. Memory
  6. Ruggedness

What are the pros and cons of the two options? Looking forward to hear

The above criteria can be based off of the specifications. Have you made a table comparing the two?


One item I would add is latency and throughput requirements, are thow and defined
