Competition Winners Announced!

The competition drew to a close last week and I have to say that judging has not been easy, on account of there being no shortage of great entries, with many more proposals for uses that we’d really love to support than boards we have available at this point in time.

The first winner is Steve Conklin, who is part of the team working on the AMSAT Phase 4 ground station design. This is a fantastic initiative that we’re keen to support and were honoured that LimeSDR will play a part in its development. This could also be a particularly exciting use for the upcoming LMS8001 add-on module which will extended LimeSDR coverage all the way up to 12GHz. Congratulations, Steve, and we look forward to following your progress!

The second winner is Benjamin Larsson, developer of a 433MHz receiver and decoder application with support for over 60 protocols, including everything from temperature sensors and weather stations, to tire pressure sensors and oil level monitors. We can’t wait to see this working with LimeSDR and simultaneously receiving data from multiple different systems. This is going to prove an invaluable tool to those working on elegant solutions to the problem of integrating many different proprietary wireless systems. Congratulations, Benjamin, and thanks for developing such an eminently useful piece of software!

Product Choices

$315

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. Antenna not included - separate purchase available.


$129

Lime AC Tetra Case

From the Lime AC Case project.

An aluminum case for LimeSDR USB Type-A, with one fan and 12 U.FL-to-SMA cables. This case allows for all on-board RF and CLK lines to be externally 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.


$13

Multi-band 4G/3G/2G Monopole Antenna

From the Crowd Supply Basics project.

Use one antenna for each of LimeSDR's four channels. Connect each antenna to the LimeSDR using a U.FL-to-SMA cable.

A TG.09 4G/3G/2G cellular hinged SMA(M) mount monopole antenna.


$8

U.FL-to-SMA Cable

From the Crowd Supply Basics project.

Use one cable for each of LimeSDR's four channels. The 100 mm version works well with the Acrylic Case.

A Hirose U.FL to SMA (jack) bulkhead straight connector with a 1.32 mm diameter cable. Less than -2 dB cable insertion loss up to 6 GHz. Both connectors are gold-plated brass and the cable conductor is silver-coated copper.


$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.
