Field Report Contest

The LimeSDR family of software-defined radios has been around for a few years now. After all this time in the wild, we’ve seen some amazing applications and demos in the Myriad-RF forum and elsewhere. Yet, we’re sure we haven’t even scratched the surface, so we’re putting out this official call for demos and applications to showcase what members of the community have done with your Lime gear!

Did you do something unique, difficult, or unexpected with your Lime product? Are you looking for alien signals from deep space? Setting up a private cellular network for you and your friends in the middle of the wilderness? Let the community know! Or, maybe you’ve done something less glamorous but nonetheless of potential use to Lime users, like a particular configuration with universal application, or a solution to a knotty technical problem? Share a “Field Report” with us and we’ll share it with the world!

How? Send us a few paragraphs (300 words or more) describing your project using any Lime technology. Include any technical details you think would be helpful to the community. Tell us how it went, where you did it, why you did it, what the results were, what challenges you faced, the more detail the better. (Don’t worry too much about the writing, we have editors.) We’ll publish the most unique, useful, ambitious, and downright cool projects as official project updates and on our blog. One of those published will be chosen at random to win a LimeSDR Mini to do even more cool stuff with!

Please send us your Field Report. Just put “Field Report Submission” as your subject line so we know what it is. Be sure to include your contact info. The deadline to get us your submission is May 21st.

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. 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.
