Complete Setup How-to Guide

Steps Description
Hardware Setup The first step is to set up the various hardware features of your Per Vices product. This includes steps such as ensuring device receives power, and cables are connected properly.
Host Machine Setup The second step is to set up your host machine and downloading the appropriate software to operate your Per Vices SDR product. The two pieces of software needed are UHD and GNU Radio.
Testing & Confirming Functionality Once both the hardware and software has been setup, the next step is to test the setup of both features to ensure it was done successfully.
Running Your First Programs Once everything has been setup, it is now time to run your first program on your Per Vices device. In your first programs, you will code your SDR device to receive a waveform using a UHD block (see PVT-0 below) and transmit a waveform using a GRC block (see PVT-1 below).
Running More Complex Waveforms Now that you have become familiar with running basic waveforms, we can now move on to more complicated waveforms. Following the FM receiver tutorial to learn how to work with complicated waveforms using different combination of blocks.
