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 [...]

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 [...]
