Highlights from the LimeSDR Beta Testing Community

Since successfully reaching our goal (we are still really happy about that so thank you!), we have continued to beaver away behind the scenes.

Members of the LimeSDR beta testing community have been working on improving the experience of using the LimeSDR, and we wanted to keep you in the loop with a couple of highlights.

Firstly, we haven’t really talked about the native Windows support for LimeSDR, but it is important to note that we do support Windows and even Apple OS X. It is really great to see Simon Brown has his SDR Console software happily working with the LimeSDR. Here is a screen shot of this displaying a 50MHz slice of spectrum with 2G / GSM signals.

It’s also really cool to have confirmation that you can use a LimeSDR together with Ubuntu that is running inside a virtual machine (VM). It seems that you can use a VirtualBox VM running Ubuntu!

Check out Andrew’s blog post on Myriad RF for more on these developments.

We are also hoping to share some exciting manufacturing news with you soon, so that’s a heads up!

Cheers,

Jessica and the LimeSDR team

Product Choices

$299

LimeSDR USB Type-A

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.


$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, a GPIO Board or LMS8001 Companion, together with SMA connectors for all RF ports and clock I/O. A 40 mm cooling fan is included. LimeSDR, GPIO Board/LMS8001 Companion, and SMA connectors are not included.
