Competition to Find 10 Best Radio Access Demos

BT and Lime Microsystems invite all backers of the LimeSDR, LimeNET and LimeSDR Mini campaigns to enter a competition to find the best 10 radio access demos. These could be based around cellular, Wi-Fi, or any other type of system that can be used in providing wireless access. The creators of the selected demos will receive a LimeSDR with Aluminium Kit and, where a commercial opportunity exists, the developers could receive an invitation to work with BT and Lime to further develop the application and publish it via the LimeNET app store.

Criteria

The criteria for entries are as follows:

  • Uses LimeSDR-based hardware
  • Built using open source technologies
  • Is either an application not previously demonstrated via a campaign update or on myriadrf.org, or at least meaningfully builds on a previous demo.

Regarding this last point, if you are unsure you should check the updates for the LimeSDR, LimeNET, and LimeSDR Mini campaigns, along with the Myriad-RF blog and forums.

Entering

To enter, please upload a video of your demo to YouTube, tag it with “LimeSDR” and “RAN Forum,” and post a link with a few details to support your entry to the Myriad-RF RAN Forum.

The closing date for entries is 31st January 2018. Please note that you are not expected to fully complete your application by this date, but you should present it so that it can be judged in terms of the level of innovation and viability for implementation in a reasonable timescale.

Judging

Entries will be judged by BT and the winners will be announced by 14th February 2018.

Terms & Conditions

The competition terms and conditions are available on the Myriad-RF website.

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.


$299

LimeSDR USB micro Type-B

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 micro Type-B 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.
