NAME

bladeRF-install-firmware - BladeRF Firmware Utility

SYNOPSIS

bladeRF-install-firmware [-h] [show help] [-i imagedir] [image_directory] [-f fpgaimage] [fpkg_image_file] [-u usbimage] [fx3_image_file]

OPTIONS

This program works best without any arguments. If you already have the firmware tarball and are wanting to install it on a system without Internet access, then you can run this script with that file as an argument.

DESCRIPTION

The FPGA image is built using non-free software and is not distributed by Debian. This program makes it easier for the end user to get recommended images from Nuand.com.

The bladeRF-cli application is used to load the FX3 firmware and the FPGA firmware.

The FX3 firmware only needs to be loaded once: it is stored in flash, and survives power cycling. The FPGA image needs to be loaded every time.

Recommended firmware and FPGA images to use: FX3 Image: https://nuand.com/fx3/latest.img FPGA: https://nuand.com/fpga
