Manufacturing Update #3

The complete shipment from Altera in our offices in the UK

We are delighted to be able to confirm that all 2,500 Altera FPGA chips have arrived at our UK headquarters and are ready to be shipped with various other parts to our ODM in Taiwan. As mentioned in the previous update, we have the first batch of 500 units of the TCXOs from Rakon and they are working very hard to expedite the manufacturing of more parts to fulfill the remainder of our order. We are looking forward to receiving these soon!

Cut down version of the production test set up at our UK offices

We have now completed and verified the LimeSDR production test program running on the test stations. A replica of this configuration has been installed at our UK headquarters for program development and debugging. This runs on an Ubuntu machine with a powerful 10-core Intel Core i7-based motherboard. The test program has been highly optimised for a thorough test, while achieving a test time of just under one minute. Such a brief testing time for such a comprehensive series of tests is a crucial factor in hitting such a low price point for such a high performance board. We are very pleased with the outcome and invite you to take a look at the video below for an idea of the test setup.

Not too long now before we start full production…

In other news, work continues on the driver, Lime Suite, with a new release recently published to the Myriad-RF Drivers Ubuntu PPA, which incorporates a number of improvements and bug fixes. New builds of GNU Radio and gr-osmosdr were also recently published to the Myriad-RF GNU Radio PPA. These are just a few examples of the additional work that is going on behind the scenes to ensure that backers get a first-class experience.

$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.
