Manufacturing Update

Just some of the components that have recently arrived

We now have most of the components with our assembly house in Taiwan. We are waiting for the long lead items and working closely with our suppliers to expedite the delivery. The key components are the Altera Cyclone IV FPGA and Rakon TCXO. We expect to receive partial shipment of these parts by 25th November and with the rest being shipped to us by 22nd December. Both Intel/Altera and Rakon are working hard to secure as many parts as possible for the first shipment, in order to cover orders for backers placed during the campaign. We should have an update on the above by next week, when we will receive the final delivery notes from our suppliers.

Performing test runs on the assembly line for the LimeSDR boards

As part of our commitment to delivering the boards as soon as possible, we have asked our assembly house to perform a dedicated initial manufacturing run for our backers, against the original plan of including your boards as part of a much higher volume run to reduce the cost. We have also expanded our team in Taiwan for greater control over the manufacturing process. This is under the supervision of Andy Chang, who heads up the Lime Micro operation in Taiwan, and Ernie Shih who is in charge of procurement. They are a new addition to the LimeSDR team and their photos have been added to the campaign page.

Production of the acrylic cases is also well under way and these will be heading out to the fulfilment centre within the next few weeks.

Last but not least, we are pleased to say that discussions with our partners to provide some of the coolest apps in the LimeNET store are progressing well. You can expect a number of exciting announcements on this and much more over the course of the next few weeks!

We are working extremely hard to ensure that this is nothing short of a first-class experience for you all and thank you in advance for your patience.

$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.
