AD9371 Iron Python Scripts

I am now trying to use Iron python to script to send and receive data. I am able to create an Iron python script that initializes the chip and the turns everything on and starts the radio. The next step I believe is to send data out. I see the commands and everything to do this but I am having a hard time putting them together in the correct order. Do you have a script that will do that?

 

Also, I have a txt file with the data in I Q format and am not sure how to link it into the python script. Do I just load this file using the open and f.read command in Ironpython?

 

 

A more broad question I have, what is the purpose of Iron Python compared to the C format that is seen in the UG-992 document? I am more familiar with C and would be more comfortable with programing using this language. I see starting on page 6 of that user guide the folder and file structure for using this. Where do these file reside and if I wanted to edit or use this method how would I be able to do this?

  • Hi,

    Customer is trying to evaluate the performance by measuring the BER curve. What is your recommendation for creating an input data pattern (on the DAC side) and reading the output pattern (on the ADC side).  If ACE tool  not supported 9371 (please confirm) it could be a very simple process. Please let us know if you have a procedure for this measurement. Thanks.
