I'm trying to run the PackRF radios to send and receive the video from the included camera.
I've tried to do this with the firmware (Linux) from the box and have tried to update the adi tools thru the Internel - in both cases got the same results. I have the original firmware and 2019_R1-2020_02_04 version with the updated ADI tools.
So, when I run 'Recv Video' command from the menu I got several error about 'netcat: cannot assign' and 'cannor find HOME directory'.
When I run 'Autoconfig' command from the menu -- I got several messages for non-existing 'sshpass'.
I've tried to login into the radio and try to run those commands from the terminal. In fact, I can fix the problem with sshpass but still can't run the video receiption.
It seems to me that the data link itself is not established between both radios and I don't know how to set it up.
I've read some manuals on AD site and still can't understand how to setup the IP channel/Data Link between two radios.
Could you help me with that, please?
To use the modem actually requires a specific HDL design to be built, its not in the standard firmware images since its so custom.
This is the ADI_MM_TT demo from the doc here: https://wiki.analog.com/resources/eval/user-guides/ad-fmcomms2-ebz/software/matlab_bsp_modem
Pre-built files are on the wiki at the bottom of this section: https://wiki.analog.com/resources/eval/user-guides/ad-fmcomms2-ebz/software/matlab_bsp_modem?rev=1585324338#hdl_capable_demos
or in the toolboxes:
Thank you for your hint. It finally works (with this files -- https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/TransceiverToolbox/tree/master/CI/projects/adrv9361z7035/ccbox_lvds_modem/boot).
What could you recommend for PA and LNA for the 800 MHz?
There are still some issues to look into and think about.
1) Data link channel is too short. I mean when I move one radio in 1 meter away from another -- data link disappears. We think it is because antenna doesn't fit the 950/900 MHz frequency.
2) Maybe we need to use (or tune) some amplification.
3) Linux configuration is not error-free. Ather are some utils missed and some misconfigurations.
