Production Process

In the past week, we have placed the order to the factory for the LimeSDR Mini case version, and we’ve started to order the accessories, fan, custom RF shields, and conductive sponge.

Here are the parts we received so far:

RF Shields and Conductive Sponges:

Conductive Sponge (perfect cut as we promised):

You may notice that we haven’t placed the Type-A version to the factory as well as the mini version. That is because we are re-measuring the dimensions for the Type-A board with the dial gauge and Marble comparator. We can get a more accurate model than we if we used the vernier calipers. Once we confirm measurements and make any necessary design changes, we’ll place the order.

LimeSDR USB Type-A

From the LimeSDR project.

The LimeSDR is based on Lime Microsystem’s latest generation of field programmable RF transceiver technology, combined with FPGA and microcontroller chipsets. These connect to a computer via USB 3 with a Type-A connector. LimeSDR then delivers the wireless data and the CPU provides the computing power required to process the incoming signals, and to generate the data to be transmitted by the LimeSDR to all other devices.
