In a previous post on the Myriad-RF blog, Josh Blum introduced the driver architecture, describing the various components and APIs that it provides. In a new post he picks up where he left off and takes a look at the LimeSDR application ecosystem that is available to us thanks to this.
After explaining how the “SoapySDR glue layer” sits between the SDR driver and applications, Josh introduces the packaging efforts that make installing support on both Ubuntu and Windows trivial. Before then going to take us through two simple application examples: broadcast FM radio reception with Pothos GUI, and using GNU Radio Companion to decode RDS data.
As Josh says, “stay tuned”, as we have some more advanced and pretty exciting demos lined up!
