Re: GPIO versus USB on the 3000

mb7usm@...
 

Hello and thanks for the answers most useful.

It seems for me the USB is a better way to go.

Can I presume the dv3000 u replaces the older blue and red dvd dongle for d-star and the functionality is pretty much the same? will be good on the simplex node / pi. But also good when travelling connected to the laptop.

This will work for simplex by the looks of it which is ideal for my UK simplex node mb7ism.
Can do an analogue to d-star gateway, maybe in the future DMR.

Replacing irlp-echo-link, I wonder if you can use dtmf to control which reflector you connect to or which repeater.

Can you also access the data side of d-star, run something like d-rats?

Thanks so much happy afternoon

Hello Team,


Can anyone let me know the main differences between the GPIO / USB version.


They are functionally the same.  The GPIO version appears as a serial port to the Raspberry Pi and the USB version appears as a serial port to any computer with the correct FTDI USB serial driver.

 

My main question is will the USB work on a raspberry pi, it gives a bit more flexibility down the line.


Yes and Yes.
 

Also the 25 watt digital radio, is the price complete or would you need to buy the gpio 3000 board to make it work?


The UDRX-440 is primarily a digital data radio.  To include digital voice one adds a DV3000 (GPIO) or ThumbDV™ (USB) device, as an additional option.
 

I have 2 main projects in mind and would appreciate your feedback.


1:- analogue gateway to d-star / dmr using a dv300 and dummy repeater / analogue radio (plus interface)


 

2:- Longer term goal set up a DMR repeater, but really need help on the licensing side / set up here.


NW Digital Radio is not currently planning to create a DMR package for the UDRX-440, but others have expressed interest.   BTW, multiple ThumbDVs can be attached to a computer to provide multiple AMBE streams. The DMR and D-STAR AMBE streams are slightly different and would need to be encoded separately (though the AMBE 3000 chip can do each).
 

I look forward to talking with you all soon and learning more about these great products and technologies.

One, though a person could run multiple devices in parallel.
 

Can asterisk talk to this device?



I am not aware of a CHAN driver specific to the 3000.   If a chan driver were developed to packetize a PCM stream to the device it could generate AMBE frames and the reverse.

Now I understand.

The PDF was the same for each one so I didnt get it.

Now I got it!


Re: DV3000 / U

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

The DV3000U is USB, the DV3000 is GPIO -- watch for more information in the next 24 hours (you happened on the shop as its being prepared for the DV3000U)

The USB device was discussed here http://nwdigitalradio.com/pacificon-2014 while still under development.

Re: Raspberry Pi -hardware requirements

John Hays <john@...>
 

Mike,

The AMBEserver/dv3000d daemon is very light and will run on a minimal board without problem. 

I think ircDDBgateway is pretty lightweight. If you are running dummyrepeater be sure to get the ALSA version. 

I am pretty sure I've run all on a version 1 model B.

Hi Everyone,


I've searched around, but could not find any info on which versions of the Raspberry Pi are supported other than a recent post regarding the model B+.


Prior to the model B+, there were two "flavours" of the preceding model Bs. The original model B had only 256MB ram, whereas the newer one had 512MB.


Is 256MB enough for the DV3000, Raspbian image, and AMBEServer software?


Thanks in advance,

-Mike

New daemon code for DV3000

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

New code has been committed to run the DV3000 daemon.  It replaces dv3000d, which still works but is deprecated. Source can be found at

https://github.com/dl5di/OpenDV/tree/master/AMBETools/DV3000
or

You should start seeing binary versions in upcoming packages and images in coming days/weeks.

DV3000 users should use the AMBEserverGPIO version of the daemon.  It requires an argument for the location of the device.  Example

AMBEserverGPIO -d -i /dev/ttyAMA0

Re: Any updates

Here is an update from a post dated Oct 13th, about a demonstration of the UDRX at Pacifocon. Although the title "Delivery is in the eye of the beholder" makes me a little nervous about reaching the goal ....

"At this point we’re pretty comfortable with accepting orders for the UDRX this year for delivery in Q1!"
