uhd_install_firmware(1) Universal Hardware Driver Firmware Utility


uhd_install_firmware [-i imagedir] [imagetarball]


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.


The UHD 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.

Hardware supporting UHD drivers includes the Universal Software Radio Peripheral, or USRP, available in several models.

This program installs the firmware 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.
