Manufacturing Is Complete and Testing Has Begun

It's been a long time since our last iotSDR update, and we've now passed our initial shipping estimate. We had hoped to post some information before that happened, but we were unable to do so. Apologies for the delay. On a more positive note, this update includes photographs of the fully assembled iotSDR boards that we recently received from our manufacturing partner!

The Home Stretch

Running this campaign has been a fantastic experience. As with all things, however, it must come to an end. We have two days left to reach our funding goal, and the good news is that we're extremely close. So, if you're interested in seeing what you can do with iotSDR, come help us across that finish line!

How We Use the Microchip AT86RF215 Transceiver

Microchip’s AT86RF215 is a multi-band radio transceiver with dual Radio RF Front-ends—one sub-GHz and one at 2.4 GHz—that cover nearly all of the unlicensed IoT bands, making it ideal for all-in-one IoT solutions. This update delves into those capabilities and discusses a few of the ways in which iotSDR takes advantage of them. Read the full update.

Browsing the Sky For GNSS Satellites

The iotSDR has a Max2769 GNSS front-end chip capable of receiving on the GNSS L1 band. GNSS systems are similar, in some respects, to satellite communication systems. They provide a unique set of features that we believe justifies the inclusion of such a specialized receiver chip. This update covers one possible application of that feature set.

Extending Our Campaign Through October 1st

First off, we would like to thank our backers and everyone else who has supported iotSDR so far. Unfortunately, we were unable to put in the time, over the past several weeks, to keep you all informed about our progress by posting regular updates. As a result, and in consultation with Crowd Supply, we have decided to extend the campaign by another three weeks. We will now be crowdfunding through Thursday, October 1st. Read the full update.

Adding Discounted Early Bird Pledge Levels!

Based on feedback from market research we've been carrying out over the past week—and to support the SDR developer community—we've decided to add two Early Bird pledge levels to the iotSDR campaign. Both models feature discounted pricing and are available in limited quantities. Read the full update.

We Are Live!

We are extremely excited to be launching the iotSDR crowdfunding campaign. Our passion for RF technology and our commitment to open hardware brought us here, and we can't think of anywhere we'd rather be! Featuring dual, narrow-band (AT86RF215) transceivers, a GNSS frontend, and a Zynq SoC, iotSDR is packed with features that developers will appreciate. With support for open source software like PYNQ, Jupyter, and GNU Radio—as well as powerful, gRPC-based remote-operation capabilities—iotSDR provides an open hardware foundation upon which you can develop some very cool applications.
