Project Competition

Competition to receive an early (by end of August!) LimeSDR

We can’t help but wonder to what uses you might put a LimeSDR if you were provided with access ahead of the campaign shipping…..

We’ve already been amazed by the achievements of those in the community who we were able to provide with early access to LimeSDR hardware. From receiving weather satellites, to running 2G and 4G cellular base stations, and even HD TV broadcasting — the uses to which LimeSDR has been put in a very short period of time far exceeded our expectations.

With this in mind we’ve decided to run a competition, the winner of which will receive a LimeSDR board plus acrylic case, shipped out to them on Friday 28th August. The LimeSDR order you’ve already placed will be sent at the regularly scheduled ship date.

The competition is only open to campaign backers and does not include pre-orders placed after the campaign closed.

To enter the competition please send an e-mail to a.back@limemicro.com from the address that you used with your Crowd Supply pledge and include the following:

  • Summary of the proposed application.
  • Link to an SDR project on GitHub or similar to which you have contributed.

The competition closes at 09:00 UTC on Friday 19th August. Following which the LimeSDR development team will review all entries and pick the one deemed the best, based on a combination of the proposed application and demonstrable experience.

Please note that:

  • There is only one prize of a single board + acrylic case
  • The winner will still subsequently receive their campaign reward(s) in due course

Both the standard and competition terms and conditions apply.

Good Luck!

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.
