Sanbox 6 (SB6) is dedicated to experimenting with variety of Software Defined Radio (SDR) platforms. Currently it has three different platforms as shown in diagram below:

  • GENI Cognitive Radio (CRKit) platform. Each of the two nodes, in addition to standard WiFi (Intel 2915?) and WiMAX (Intel 6250?) card, has CRKit with SDR device attached through dedicated Ethernet interface (eth2). The CRKIT is also connected to a host machine (node) via a JTAG to USB interface. This interface is used by software in the Xilinx SDK (Impact and Xilinx Bash Shell) to program the Virtex-5 FPGA. After all the programming has been performed over JTAG, the on board Ethernet controller takes over and communication between the node and the CRKit takes place via the Gigabit Ethernet interface with UDP packets.More details on the protocol are available at ; Basic tutorial is available at Tutorials/CRKit?
