LimeSDR Mini, the smaller, two-channel sibling of LimeSDR, is being retired due to ongoing supply chain shortages. In its place, we will soon launch LimeSDR Mini 2.0.
As for LimeSDR, LimeSDR with Aluminum Kit, and Ultimate LimeSDR With PCIe Interface, they will remain in production as they are. We do not currently have plans for a 2.0 version of any of these products because the supply chain problems that triggered a revision of LimeSDR Mini are not as pronounced for LimeSDR. In particular, we expect the higher-powered FPGA used in LimeSDR to be more readily available than the version used in LimeSDR Mini.
Nonetheless, it’s still very difficult to make good estimates of when we will receive all parts needed for the next production batch of LimeSDR. Right now, our best guess is that the next batch will ship to customers sometime in September. We will of course expedite things as much as possible, though there is only so much we can do in a world where component lead times once measured in weeks are now measured in months or even years. At the moment, our biggest blocker is obtaining the PLL.
