MSR Software Radio Academic Kit announcement
Register NOW! The First Sora Tutorial will be held Aug 13 in Helsinki, Finland, colocated with ACM SIGCOMM 2012
For more information, please find in ACM SIGCOMM 2012 Web site.
The number of attendees are limited. Please register ASAP!
We are pleased to announce the new release of Sora SDK ver 1.6 - the best Sora software we have released so far!
You can download it from MSR Web site: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/ca9a93a1-2a38-4e3d-b87c-b7e8ddc46eae
Sora SDK ver 1.6 newly introduces following prominent features:
- New UMX API. Sora SDK ver 1.6 introduces a new set of UMX
API that is more flexible, secure and has better performance.
- UMX Reflection. Sora SDK ver 1.6 now supports a new reflection mechanism that allows the
programmer easily integrates the user-mode software radio modem into the
Windows network stack.
- Brick library. One most prominent feature in Sora SDK ver 1.6 is the Brick library. Brick is a
modular programming library for high-performance digital signal processing. It is easy to program,
flexible and highly extensible.
- UMXSDRab utility. UMXSDRab is a powerful SDR 802.11 modem
based on UMX reflection. It supports both client mode and adhoc mode. So it can
easily connect to a commercial 802.11 AP or device. UMXSDRab has an easy-to-use
interactive interface to configure and monitor the status of SDR modem
- DbgPlot tool. DbgPlot is a versatile tool that allows a
program to dynamically generate various graphics in real-time. It is a very
useful tool for real-time monitoring or debugging DSP programs.

Thank you and enjoy,
Sora core team
- New UMX API. Sora SDK ver 1.6 introduces a new set of UMX
It takes quite some time for the team to edit a full document for the Sora platform.
And now, here it comes. The latest Sora Manual contains the latest information of the Sora platform, including the basic usage, tools, programming samples and references of APIs.
We hope it will give you a handy reference to understand Sora better and help you get hands on it.
We'd say the manual may still contain many mistakes and miss some information. So if you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know.
You can download the manual here at http://research.microsoft.com/apps/pubs/?id=144847

Dut tool or dot11config can capture a snapshot of the wireless channel and store the raw I/Q samples into a file located at c:\. The post explains the format of the dump file.
The dump file is basically a binary file that contains an array of RX descriptors. A RX descriptor (RX_DESC) is defined as follows:
typedef union ___RX_DESC
#pragma warning(disable: 4200 4214 4201)
UCHAR __IsValid : 1;
UCHAR __IsScanned : 1;
UCHAR __Reserved : 6;
#pragma warning(default: 4200 4214 4201)
The signal block is of 128 Bytes, with a header (RX_DESC) and 28 complex samples (COMPLEX16).
For detailed information of signal blocks, please refore _rx_manager.h.
