NI USRP 2900 having USB 3.0 interface is used to receive FM radio. USRP which is also said to SDR have two channels. The first is the transceiver and second is the receiver. This powerful hardware has RF frequency from 70MHz to 7GHz.
As we know, FM radio frequencies lie in USRP supporting band. 101MHz radio station is tuned on USRP by LabVIEW. Demodulation of the received signal gives us the radio channel sound.
Here is the video which includes the demo and full explanation. :\
In this project, NI-USRP 2900 is used with certain toolkit.Links
