First 500 boards, rocket trajectory simulation, MATLAB support and an FM transmitter

We are pleased to be able to report that the first 500 boards have been manufactured and put through automated testing. All that remains now is for manual testing of a random sample, before they are shipped off to Crowd Supply and from there out to our backers and developers.

Rocket trajectory from Uchinoura Space Center, showing the three stage burns.

Hot on the heels of his initial GPS simulation success, Philip Hahn has gone on to simulate the actual trajectory for the Japanese SS-520-4 rocket which is scheduled for launch early next year. Dr. Takuji Ebinuma — author of gps-sim and designer of the GPS/GLONASS receiver for the TRICOM 1 satellite which will be launched via the rocket — provided Philip with the trajectory for SS-520-4, which he was then able to feed into the simulator driving his LimeSDR. On the other end RTL-SDR hardware was used with SoftGNSS to receive the GPS signal. Very cool indeed!

Some have asked about MATLAB support and we were delighted to discover that Jiang Wei has shared an implementation of just this, that also includes support for Simulink! Any questions and discussion concerning this should be directed to the thread over on the Myriad-RF forum.

Over at the other end of the spectrum, so to speak, we also have Jiang Wei to thank for a plug-in for foobar2000, an advanced freeware audio player for the Windows platform. This turns LimeSDR into a VHF transmitter and allows you to broadcast your favourite playlists over FM radio.

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.
