Manufacturing, Limited Edition LMS7002, GPS Simulation and a 3D Printed Case

The limited edition LMS7002

Our ODM manufacturer has completed the manufacturing test runs on the final version of the LimeSDR boards, and here is a short video showing the pick and place part of the process.

SMT pick and place test run

A board from the run is pictured below. Testing was completed on the production tester and we are now ready for production of the first 500 units, as outlined in the previous update.

Completed board

We are still on track for these units to go out by the end of December, but of course there may be shipping delays due to the Christmas holiday.

Special limited edition LMS7002

We would like to extend our special thanks to ASE Group — the world’s largest and most advanced IC packaging and test organisation — for providing us with the special marking on LMS7002 for backers, as can be seen in the photo at the top of this update. ASE have supported us in this endeavour right from the outset and we are extremely grateful, given that the LimeSDR volume does not qualify for such customisation. Of course, we believe that this will not be the case in the long run, given the excitement we see from the community!

GPS simulation and a 3D printed case

Speaking of the community, Philip Hahn was one of those provided with early access to a LimeSDR board and he’s managed to use his to simulate GPS. Not only that, but he’s also created a 3D printed case for his board and shared the model on Thingiverse

We had to have a go at printing one out for ourselves and you can see the results obtained with our first attempt above. Not bad at all.

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.
