LimeSDR Aluminium Cases Have Arrived

We’re pleased to report that we have taken delivery of 100 LimeSDR Mini aluminium cases. We think they look fantastic - we hope you agree. One of the key concerns with a case is that it can limit access to I/O connectors, so we've developed it carefully to ensure that in addition to the USB and the antenna connectors, you will also be able to access the reference clock I/O [...]

First Steps Towards a RISC-V powered LimeNET Base Station

We’re excited to share details of something we’ve been working on in partnership with SiFive, which pairs Lime Microsystems’ field-programmable RF (FPRF) with SiFive’s Freedom U500 platform. The project is to establish the foundations for a radically open wireless base station architecture with unprecedented flexibility. The combination creates a platform where wireless systems are implemented via software-defined radio, with the ability for custom hardware accelerators to be integrated in FPGA, before [...]

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 [...]
