Rust bindings for SoapySDR
SoapySDR provides a hardware abstraction layer for many software defined radio devices.
This library requires dependencies not handled by Cargo:
- libsoapysdr 0.6, 0.7, or git master (0.8)
- libclang 3.9+ (for bindgen)
(Tested on Ubuntu 20.04)
sudo apt install libsoapysdr-dev libclang-dev llvm-dev pkg-config # Choose the appropriate drivers for your hardware: sudo apt install soapysdr-module-rtlsdr soapysdr-module-hackrf soapysdr-module-uhd soapysdr-module-lms7
Install pre-built PothosSDR and LLVM, then
LIBCLANG_PATHenvironment variable to LLVM bin directory for rust-bindgen
- Add PothosSDR bin directory to system
Many SoapySDR driver modules have error handling and thread safety bugs. This library provides safe Rust wrappers assuming the drivers meet the (under-documented) intentions of the SoapySDR core API contract, but if SoapySDR loads modules that violate this contract and you do atypical things with them, you may encounter unexpected behavior. For details, see this SoapySDR issue.
This crate comes with two small utilities that serve as example code.
Displays device details like
cargo run --release --features=binaries --bin soapy-sdr-info
Records data from a device.
e.g. capture 15 seconds of data from the FM band:
cargo run --release --features=binaries --bin soapy-sdr-stream -- -d driver=rtlsdr -r out.cfile -f 96M -s 1M -n 15M
The resulting file contains 32-bit little-endian complex float samples, and can be opened with inspectrum.
