usrp_x3xx_fpga_burner(1) USRP X-Series FPGA Burner


Burn an FPGA image onto a connected USRP X-Series device. The program takes two main arguments. The first is either an IP address or an NI-RIO resource to decide the method of loading the FPGA image. The other is either the type of image to burn, in which case the program will choose the default image of that type and model, or a custom FPGA image path.
