uhd_images_downloader(1) USRP Hardware Driver firmware/FPGA downloader


The UHD package is the universal hardware driver for Ettus Research products. The goal of the UHD is to provide a host driver and API for current and future Ettus Research products. Users will be able to use the UHD driver standalone or with 3rd party applications.

This program installs the firmware and FPGA binaries from Ettus Research matching this UHD driver release onto the host system. If the uhd-images package is installed, there is no need to run this installer.
