RSP2 native API

Postby mikael » Tue Dec 06, 2016 9:27 am

I am confused. The native API to RSP1 is supplied by MIRICS. This API no longer works for the RSP2 according to the SDRplay staff. Does this imply that the RSP1 follow the MIRICS SDR reference design by the letter, but the RSP2 not? Still, both are using the MSI-2500 USB interface, and this communication protocol can not have changed. What may have changed, is the GPIO (and additional) output controlling the pre-selector filters and additional new functionality of the RSP2, though.

The heart of the matter is, how come no native API is supplied yet? SDRplay must be using the MIRICS API to develop SDRuno in the first place anyway..? I'd really like to start develop for the RSP2.

Thank you SDRplay for the API release.

I just compiled the old SoapySDRPlay driver against the new SDRplay API, and CubicSDR run as-is without any modifications. :D

Of course, to get the new features of the RSP2 to work, they'll have to be added to the SoapySDRPlay code, but this is a promising start.
