(And see also latest progress: Whole 20MHz config LTE signal is decoded by HACKRF 19.2Msps with ASN1 SIB parsed)
New features comes to https://github.com/JiaoXianjun/LTE-Cell-Scanner
Now MATLAB isn’t needed. All in C/C++. All you need are rtl-sdr dongle and Linux computer. TDD and FDD are both supported. External LNB/Mixer (allow mixer and A/D use non-coherent clock sources) is also supported.
OpenCL parallel computation is supported! It searches per frequency point in
0.5s (desktop i7-3930K 6 firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz) 22x faster! or 2~3s (ThinkPad T410 i5 CPU M520@2.40GHz).
Intel, AMD and Nvidia OpenCL SDK are tested. Acceleration ratio is gotten by Intel SDK.
Nvidia GPU hasn’t reached so amazing acceleration ratio. It maybe because of slow PCI-E and memory. I haven’t found time to optimize on that.
Another open source OpenCL lib pocl - Portable Computing Language (https://github.com/pocl/pocl) is also tested, and it seems as fast as Intel’s! (See video I attached in the end.)
- Some improvements on algorithm. Higher sensitivity and more robust.

Have fun with LTE. Have fun with OpenCL!
