The first production boards have gone out to developers for application integration, but we are waiting on a few remaining parts before we can assemble backer boards. We'll update you when we have a firmer date, but right now we're estimating late-January. Read the full update.
In this short video, you can see one of the first assembled 1v0 boards and learn from the LimeRFE engineering team about the final work that we are doing before volume manufacturing begins. Read the full update.
Daniel Estévez paired a LimeNET Micro with a LimeRFE prototype to access the QO-100 narrowband transponder using an off-the-shelf 24 dBi Wi-Fi grid antenna. Read the full update.
We sent a LimeRFE 0v3 prototype board to Evariste Courjaud, who decided to try it out with digital video broadcasting. The result was a strong, clean three watt signal. Read the full update.
Two days left! In this update, we will look at the performance of our final LimeRFE 1v0 design by combining measurements from the prototype 0v3 board with simulated results for the newly added amateur radio bands (50/70 MHz, 220 MHz, and 920 MHz) and the updated 1280 MHz band. Read the full update.
We sent a 0v3 prototype board to radio amateur and GNSS engineer Daniel Estévez (EA4GPZ), so he could put it through its paces and provide feedback as we fine tune the design. Even with a damaged prototype, his Weak Signal Propagation Reporter (WSPR) transmissions from Madrid were being picked up as far away as the Canary Islands, Netherlands and Northern England.

We are pleased to announce a limited run of 50 boards, without support for cellular bands, at a reduced price of $449. Read the full update.
Our engineering team has put together a short video that shows a LimeRFE, driven by a LimeSDR Mini, transmitting a signal on both the two meter amateur radio (HAM) band and on LTE Band 3. Read the full update.
Schematic diagrams are now available on our new LimeRFE hardware design repository. Read the full update.
We are delighted to have met the crowdfunding target for LimeRFE in around 24 hours and with all of our Early Bird rewards having gone literally overnight! Read the full update.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our crowdfunding campaign for LimeRFE, a highly configurable RF front-end that adds multi-band power amplification (PA) and a low noise amplifier (LNA), plus filtering and support circuitry for use with LimeSDR, LimeSDR Mini, and LimeNET Micro.
