mirisdr(1) an I/Q recorder for Mirics SDR devices


Software for the Mirics MSi2500 + MSi001 SDR platform

In-Phase and Quadrature Phase data can faithfully represent all of the information in a band of frequencies centered on a carrier signal frequency.


This program captures information from a band of frequencies and outputs the data in a form useful to other software radio programs.


mirisdr [-f freq] [OPTIONS] [output file]


-f frequency_to_tune_to [Hz]
-s samplerate (default: 2048000 Hz)
-d device_index (default: 0)
-g gain (default: 0 for auto)
-b output_block_size (default: 16 * 16384)
-S force sync output (default: async)

 (a '-' dumps samples to stdout)


Example: To tune to 392.0 MHz, and set the sample-rate to 1.8 MS/s, use:

 ./mirisdr /tmp/capture.bin -s 1.8e6 -f 392e6

to record samples to a file or to forward the data to a fifo.

If the device can't be opened, make sure you have the appropriate rights to access the device (install udev-rules from the repository, or run it as root).
