First app-enabled open-source software-defined base stations

Software defined radio hardware supports a wide range of wireless base stations across a wide frequency spectrum, from WiFi, Bluetooth, beacons, Zigbee, to LoRa base stations, from UMTS to LTE without a truck-roll or equipment upgrade. App-enabled base stations allow simple migration between use cases and technologies via apps from App Stores. The open source hardware and software solution will allow all vendors and operators to optimise their costs Mobile [...]

Airbus Defence and Space and Lime Microsystems partner for the development of a robust Galileo GNSS receiver

Lime Microsystems and Airbus Defence and Space, with funding from Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board), today announced a joint development of robust GNSS products. Airbus D&S, using Lime’s Field Programmable RF (FPRF) transceiver technology, is developing a robust timing receiver that exploits signals from the new Galileo satellite navigation constellation. It is envisaged that a highly integrated Field Programmable RF (FPRF) solution based on Lime’s technology and an [...]

SWIFT: power across wireless networks

Lime Microsystems is currently working in partnership - with Kings College London and the Universities of Lancaster and Leeds - on the recently announced SWIFT project. The project is the first collaborative UK effort to address the theory and practicalities of simultaneously transferring information and power across wireless networks. Funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the SWIFT project will address issues regarding the modelling, analysis, and [...]

Flexible military radios

Paul Dillien writing in Military Embedded Systems considers the challenges of enabling mobile ad hoc networks to link together disparate wireless systems. Lime’s LMS7002M, he argues, with its simplified calibration, is the technology that will enable this. Dilien notes that, “MIMO techniques improve the spectral efficiency and achieve a diversity gain that improves the link reliability. It is expected that MIMO will become an important addition to meet the growing [...]

EE Times on IoT FPRF

Interesting piece in EE Times from October 2014 regarding the development of highly integrated FPRF and the ways in which they are presenting a solution to emerging wireless issues inherent in the IoT. The advent, maintains the article, of highly integrated and low cost Field Programmable Radio Frequency (FPRF) chips has provided the solution to the wireless issues. For example, the latest device from Lime Microsystems, the LMS7002M, features a frequency [...]

M2M & IoT Meet Asset Tracking

First published in EE Times Written by Paul Dillien, Principal, High Tech Marketing The Internet of Things (IoT) has been the subject of numerous articles and presentations, and it has also been the driving force behind many startup companies, so it is somewhat surprising that there is no standardization of either the protocols or communications to be used. The IoT was formerly known as machine-to-machine (M2M) communications -- this was before [...]

Can Software-Defined Radio Become Open Radio?

First published by Altera Software-defined radio (SDR) is by now a grizzled veteran in the dusty waiting room of next big things. Apart from some deployments in battlefield radios, electronic countermeasures, and small-cell cellular base stations, it remains a great idea awaiting its chance at the big time. But advances in radio-frequency (RF) semiconductors and in computational accelerators are poised to dramatically lower the cost of SDR hardware, simplify the [...]
