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 [...]

The app store – agreement with Canonical means it’s full speed ahead

App store integration has always been a core part of the LimeSDR vision and this is something that we have continued to work on in the background, together with partners such as Quortus, who have packaged their Pocket EPC for LTE network development. We are now pleased to announce that an agreement has been put in place with Canonical (Often better known by its Linux OS Ubuntu) which means that it will [...]
