NC-10 Channelizer – Getting Started

Novator Solutions NC-10 Channelizer supports two National Instruments hardware families: NI FlexRIO™ (including PXIe-7975 and
PXIe-7976) and USRP™ (National Instruments USRP-2955).

NC-10 includes for both hardware families an FPGA bitfile, which contains the channelizer functionality, and a National Instruments LabVIEW™ API to configure the channelizer and fetch the channelized data.

Additionally, the USRP version ships with NC-10 Configuration Suite which consists of a server program that is controlled with TCP/IP commands, as well as client programs that are used for configuring the server and reading channel data.

There are a few alternate methods to get access to the software. Due to the inherent differences in the hardware families, installation and getting started procedures are different for the USRP and the FlexRIO flavours of the toolkit.

This document provides basic information on the distribution of the installation files, as well as links to getting started documentation.

In case you are interested in using LabVIEW API for FlexRIO refer to NC-10 Toolkit for FlexRIO.
In case you are interested in using LabVIEW API for USRP refer to NC-10 Toolkit for USRP.
In case you are interested in using TCP/IP capable server or clients refer to NC-10 Configuration Suite for USRP.

 

NC-10 Toolkit for FlexRIO

NC-10 uses VI Package Manager™ (VIPM, included with LabVIEW) to distribute the installation files. The package file, NC-10_3.0.x.vipm, is located on the USB-stick if you purchased the bundle directly from Novator Solutions but it can also be downloaded from LabVIEW Tools Network: http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/sv/nid/213280

To use the full functionality of NC-10 you will also need to download and run the NC-10 licensing application:
ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/License_Managers/LicenseFlexRIO.zip

To verify your system requirements, to install, license and get up and running with the toolkit, refer to the Getting Started section in the
NC-10 Toolkit Manual: ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/Help_Files/NC10Help.zip

 

NC-10 Toolkit for USRP

NC-10 uses VI Package Manager™ (included with LabVIEW) to distribute the installation files. The package file, NC-10_3.0.x.vipm, is located on the USB-stick if you purchased the bundle directly from Novator Solutions but it can also be downloaded from LabVIEW Tools Network: http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/sv/nid/213280

To use the full functionality of NC-10 you will also need to download run the NC-10 licensing and network configuration applications:
ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/License_Managers/LicenseUSRP.zip
ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/USRP_Network_Configurator/USRPNWConfig.zip

These applications are also installed automatically with the NC-10 Configuration Suite (see below).
To verify system requirements, to install, license and get up and running with the toolkit, refer to the Getting Started section in
NC-10 Toolkit Manual: ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/Help_Files/NC10Help.zip

 

NC-10 Configuration Suite for USRP

Use the following links to download the NC-Server, which also contains the client applications as built-in soft front panels, as well as example code in LabVIEW, C, Python and MATLAB for creating own client applications:
ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/Configuration_Suite/CfgSuite.zip

The client packages can also be downloaded separately to be installed in remote client machines.

NC-Config, which is used for remote configuration of NC-Server:
ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/Configuration_Suite/NCConfig.zip

NC-Channel, which is used to read the channelized data:
ftp://svn.novatorsolutions.se/NC-10_3.0.0/Configuration_Suite/NCChannel.zip

To verify system requirements, to install, license and get up and running with the NC-10 Server, refer to Getting Started section in
NC-10 Configuration Suite Manual, which can be downloaded here:
