Small C++ library to interface with the FreeSRP
Clone or download


The FreeSRP is an open source platform for software defined radio. The hardware is based around the Analog Devices AD9364 transceiver covering 70 MHz - 6 Ghz with a bandwidth of up to 56 MHz, an Xilinx Artix 7 FPGA and a USB 3.0 connection to stream data to a computer in real time.

libfreesrp is a small C++ library that uses libusb to program and configure the FreeSRP hardware and both receive and transmit RF signals.

Under construction

Right now, programming the FreeSRP, configuring the AD9364 and receiving data works well. Transmitting and full duplex operation are also possible, but not yet at the full bandwidth.

Getting started

libfreesrp depends on libusb 1.0 and some boost libraries, and uses CMake as its build system.

On Ubuntu 14.04, this is how to build and install the library and its dependencies:

# Install the dependencies
sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake libusb-1.0-0-dev libboost-all-dev

# Get the latest libfreesrp source code
git clone

# Build the library
cd libfreesrp
mkdir build && cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

# Install the library
sudo make install
