$1 Million and 1,000 More LimeSDRs

We’d like to thank everyone for the support they’ve given us in becoming Crowd Supply’s most successful project. Breaking the $1 million dollar mark is a nice reminder of how far the LimeSDR community has come.

Next Batch of 1,000 LimeSDRs

While there are already thousands of our early backers now developing with LimeSDR, our focus is squarely on filling the remaining orders. The next 1,000 LimeSDR boards, which should cover nearly everyone who has already placed an order, will be arriving at the Crowd Supply warehouse in mid-May and will be shipping to backers the second half of May. You will receive a shipping confirmation email with a tracking number when your order ships. If you have more questions about shipping, please consult The Crowd Supply Guide and your Crowd Supply account.

This batch of 1,000 was supposed to ship a full month earlier, but a single, critical part shortage held up production. Even so, we’re currently pursuing ways to get that one part on an expedited timeline from the manufacturer. We’ll let everyone know if/when we succeed in accelerating the delivery schedule, but for now the May dates are what we have. In the meantime, we’re working with our parts suppliers to get a steadier flow of parts so reliable production can ramp up.

HF Modified Boards

Those of you who opted to receive LimeSDR boards modified for HF use will be receiving your boards as part of the coming batch of 1,000 boards mentioned above.

LimeNET Coming Soon

Once production of the next batch of 1,000 is underway, we will be launching the next evolution of the LimeSDR with the LimeNET campaign set to launch at the end of April. This will include both a residential-scale, SDR-enabled network-in-a-box and a high-power, carrier-class equivalent for wide area coverage. Please register your interest to receive updates on this new project.

Product Choices

$299

LimeSDR

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 USB3. 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.


$99

Acrylic Case

A layered acrylic case to protect your LimeSDR. Can be used with either USB Type A or micro USB Type B. Antenna not included - separate purchase available.


$599

LimeSDR with Aluminum Kit

Start developing apps based on Lime Microsystem’s latest generation of field programmable RF transceiver technology. This board comes with fancy aluminum casing. The board will be delivered with turnkey support for a diverse range of SDR ecosystem software, a powerful API and rapid prototyping environment. All the boards in this category will come with a fancy Aluminum casing coated with high quality material, cables, and antennas for a quick set up.


$799

Ultimate LimeSDR With PCIe Interface

Start developing apps based on Lime Microsystem’s latest generation of field programmable RF transceiver technology. The board will be delivered with turnkey support for a diverse range of SDR ecosystem software, a powerful API and rapid prototyping environment. All the boards in this category will come with a PCIe interface, cables and Antennas for a quick set up.


$85

Four Antenna + Cable Pairs

Omni-directional antenna set, covering frequency ranges 800-960 MHz, 1710-2170 MHz, and 2400-2700 MHz. Includes U.FL to SMA cables.


$169

GPIO Board

This stackable expansion board for the LimeSDR provides individually settable, bi-directional level-shifted I/O for FPGA GPIO 0-7. Each I/O has a high-voltage and power Darlington drive stage suitable for inductive loads, such as coaxial relays. LimeSDR not included.


$79

Hacker Case

This custom acrylic case accommodates both a LimeSDR and a GPIO Board, and includes SMA connectors for all RF ports, two SMA connectors for clock I/O, and a 40 mm cooling fan. LimeSDR and GPIO Board not included.
