gnuradio

GNU Radio provides signal processing blocks to implement software radios. It can be used with readily-available low-cost external RF hardware to create software-defined radios, or without hardware in a simulation-like environment. It is widely used in hobbyist, academic and commercial environments to support both wireless communications research and real-world radio systems.

GNU Radio applications are primarily written using the Python programming language, while the supplied performance-critical signal processing path is implemented in C++ using processor floating-point extensions, where available. Thus, the developer is able to implement real-time, high-throughput radio systems in a simple-to-use, rapid-application-development environment.

While not primarily a simulation tool, GNU Radio does support development of signal processing algorithms using pre-recorded or generated data, avoiding the need for actual RF hardware.

This package contains the gnuradio-companion, a graphical tool for creating signal flow graphs and generating flow-graph source code. Also included are a variety of tools and utility programs.

gr_plot

Display time series of samples from a file

root@kali:~# gr_plot -h
usage: gr_plot [-h]
               [-d {complex64,float32,uint32,int32,uint16,int16,uint8,int8}]
               [-B BLOCK] [-s START] [-R SAMPLE_RATE]
               FILE [FILE ...]

Takes a GNU Radio binary file and displays the samples versus time. You can
set the block size to specify how many points to read in at a time and the
start position in the file. By default, the system assumes a sample rate of 1,
so in time, each sample is plotted versus the sample number. To set a true
time axis, set the sample rate (-R or --sample-rate) to the sample rate used
when capturing the samples.

positional arguments:
  FILE                  Input file with samples

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -d {complex64,float32,uint32,int32,uint16,int16,uint8,int8}, --data-type {complex64,float32,uint32,int32,uint16,int16,uint8,int8}
                        Specify the data type [default='complex64']
  -B BLOCK, --block BLOCK
                        Specify the block size [default=1000]
  -s START, --start START
                        Specify where to start in the file [default=0]
  -R SAMPLE_RATE, --sample-rate SAMPLE_RATE
                        Set the sampler rate of the data [default=1.0]

gr_plot_const

Constellation plot of I&Q data using GNU Radio

root@kali:~# gr_plot_const -h
usage: gr_plot_const [-h] [-B BLOCK] [-s START] [-R SAMPLE_RATE] FILE

Takes a GNU Radio complex binary file and displays the I&Q data versus time
and the constellation plot (I vs. Q). You can set the block size to specify
how many points to read in at a time and the start position in the file. By
default, the system assumes a sample rate of 1, so in time, each sample is
plotted versus the sample number. To set a true time axis, set the sample rate
(-R or --sample-rate) to the sample rate used when capturing the samples.

positional arguments:
  FILE                  Input file with complex samples

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -B BLOCK, --block BLOCK
                        Specify the block size [default=1000]
  -s START, --start START
                        Specify where to start in the file [default=0]
  -R SAMPLE_RATE, --sample-rate SAMPLE_RATE
                        Set the sampler rate of the data [default=1.0]

gr_plot_fft

Frequency domain GNU Radio plotting

root@kali:~# man gr_plot_fft
GR_PLOT_FFT(1)                   User Commands                  GR_PLOT_FFT(1)

NAME
       gr_plot_fft - Frequency domain GNU Radio plotting

SYNOPSIS
       gr_plot_fft: [options] input_filename

DESCRIPTION
       Takes  a GNU Radio complex binary file and displays the I&Q data versus
       time as well as the frequency domain (FFT) plot. The y-axis values  are
       plotted  assuming  volts  as  the amplitude of the I&Q streams and con-
       verted into dBm in the frequency domain (the 1/N power  adjustment  out
       of  the  FFT is performed internally). The script plots a certain block
       of data at a time, specified on the command line as -B or --block. This
       value  defaults  to  1000. The start position in the file can be set by
       specifying -s or --start and defaults to 0 (the start of the file).  By
       default, the system assumes a sample rate of 1, so in time, each sample
       is plotted versus the sample number. To set a true time  and  frequency
       axis, set the sample rate (-R or --sample-rate) to the sample rate used
       when capturing the samples.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit

       -d DATA_TYPE, --data-type=DATA_TYPE
              Specify the data type (complex64, float32,  (u)int32,  (u)int16,
              (u)int8) [default=complex64]

       -B BLOCK, --block=BLOCK
              Specify the block size [default=1000]

       -s START, --start=START
              Specify where to start in the file [default=0]

       -R SAMPLE_RATE, --sample-rate=SAMPLE_RATE
              Set the sampler rate of the data [default=1.0]

Plot complex binary I&Q data versus time using GNU Radio

root@kali:~# gr_plot_iq -h
usage: gr_plot_iq [-h] [-B BLOCK] [-s START] [-R SAMPLE_RATE] FILE

Takes a GNU Radio complex binary file and displays the I&Q data versus time.
You can set the block size to specify how many points to read in at a time and
the start position in the file. By default, the system assumes a sample rate
of 1, so in time, each sample is plotted versus the sample number. To set a
true time axis, set the sample rate (-R or --sample-rate) to the sample rate
used when capturing the samples.

positional arguments:
  FILE                  Input file with complex samples

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -B BLOCK, --block BLOCK
                        Specify the block size [default=1000]
  -s START, --start START
                        Specify where to start in the file [default=0]
  -R SAMPLE_RATE, --sample-rate SAMPLE_RATE
                        Set the sampler rate of the data [default=1.0]

gr_plot_psd

GNU Radio power spectrum plotting

root@kali:~# gr_plot_psd -h
usage: gr_plot_psd [-h]
                   [-d {complex64,float32,int32,uint32,int16,uint16,int8,uint8}]
                   [-B BLOCK] [-s START] [-R SAMPLE_RATE]
                   [--psd-size PSD_SIZE] [--spec-size SPEC_SIZE] [-S]
                   FILE

Takes a GNU Radio binary file (with specified data type using --data-type) and
displays the I&Q data versus time as well as the power spectral density (PSD)
plot. The y-axis values are plotted assuming volts as the amplitude of the I&Q
streams and converted into dBm in the frequency domain (the 1/N power
adjustment out of the FFT is performed internally). The script plots a certain
block of data at a time, specified on the command line as -B or --block. The
start position in the file can be set by specifying -s or --start and defaults
to 0 (the start of the file). By default, the system assumes a sample rate of
1, so in time, each sample is plotted versus the sample number. To set a true
time and frequency axis, set the sample rate (-R or --sample-rate) to the
sample rate used when capturing the samples. Finally, the size of the FFT to
use for the PSD and spectrogram plots can be set independently with --psd-size
and --spec-size, respectively. The spectrogram plot does not display by
default and is turned on with -S or --enable-spec.

positional arguments:
  FILE                  Input file with samples

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -d {complex64,float32,int32,uint32,int16,uint16,int8,uint8}, --data-type {complex64,float32,int32,uint32,int16,uint16,int8,uint8}

  -s START, --start START
                        Specify where to start in the file [default=0]
  -R SAMPLE_RATE, --sample-rate SAMPLE_RATE
                        Set the sampler rate of the data [default=1.0]
  --psd-size PSD_SIZE   Set the size of the PSD FFT [default=1024]
  --spec-size SPEC_SIZE
                        Set the size of the spectrogram FFT [default=256]
