European Space Agency selects LimeSDR for app-enabled satcoms

Lime Microsystems has announced a project with the European Space Agency, which will see its LimeSDR platforms used to develop innovative satellite telecommunications solutions based on Software Defined Radio (SDR), both on ground and in space. This is as an extension to current use cases in cellular, military and IoT applications. ESA will actually become an official backer of the LimeSDR Project - which is available through Crowd Supply - [...]

Is this the world’s smallest digital TV transmitter? Raspberry Pi Zero and LimeSDR Mini combine to create pocket-sized open-source DVB

The LimeSDR Mini and Raspberry Pi Zero have been used to create an open-source pocket-sized DVB (digital video broadcasting) transmitter, which is believed to be is the world’s smallest. Developed by Evariste Okcestbon, the open-source prototype streams live images from a Raspberry Pi camera (PiCam) and implements avc2ts, dvb2iq and limetx software to encode and transmit H.264 video on the 1.2 GHz amateur TV band. The boards are connected via [...]

A sub-$500 SDR with continuous coverage from 10 MHz to 10 GHz

The LMS8001 Companion can be used to extend the frequency range of any LimeSDR board all the way up to 10 GHz. Here Andrew Back and the LimeSDR team take a look at a demo to show it in action and observe 10 GHz signals, pairing the LMS8001 Companion with LimeSDR Mini to create a sub-$500 SDR platform with continuous coverage from 10 MHz through to 10 GHz. This is [...]

SDRangel VHF FM Transmit and Android Demos

We have two new demos to share featuring the LimeSDR Mini being used with SDRangel, both courtesy of Marty Wittrock, a veteran user of the larger 2x2 MIMO LimeSDR board and a keen advocate for amateur radio use. In the first video, Marty pairs the LimeSDR Mini with an UDOO x86 SBC running Ubuntu, using this together with SDRangel for a 2M band FM transmitter. In support of his quest [...]

QRadioLink and Smartphone Transmit & Receive Demo using LimeSDR Mini

This latest LimeSDR Mini demo comes courtesy of Adrian Musceac, community member and developer of the rather cool QRadioLink software, which is described as “a Linux SDR transceiver application with VOIP support built on top of GNU Radio, made for hobbyists, tinkerers, and radio enthusiasts, which allows experimenting with software defined radio hardware using different digital and analog modes and an easy-to-use user interface.” What’s particularly exciting about QRadioLink is that, in [...]

Raspberry Pi ScratchRadio Transmit & Receive

Coming up on two months ago, we first shared details of the SDR extensions to Scratch that we are working on, via an initial demo which creates a simple spectrum display. Since then, Chris, lead developer, has been busy working on implementing additional ScratchRadio blocks and we’re delighted to be able to now share with you complete transmit and receive examples using these. In this latest demo, we have two Raspberry Pi 3 Model [...]
