Single Computer, multiple BTS and BladeRF
« on: July 25, 2016, 01:35:19 PM »
I'm working on a project with a single computer that has multiple copies of yate (in separate Linux containers) and multiple bladeRFs attached.  My question is where in the code can I differential between the bladeRFs so that each instance of yate connects to a separate Radio and there is no interference?

Unfortunately there is no support to open a specific device.

Interesting your query, you indicate that there is no interference, that points to an interference of emission and reception by bladerf?

If so, you must make a coverage map, to know how far the coverage of emission and reception of bladerf arrives, a spectrum analyzer could help you, they are not cheap devices but it is the most accurate, or maybe you do the tests in a more craft with a phone + software and evaluate its coverage.

Greetings,

Ps: are you using LXC or Docker?

Update:
Meanwhile support for opening a specific device was added in ybladerf.conf:
[general]
serial=BOARD_SERIAL_NUMBER
