VXSDR-20 Rename and Update

by Tom Wallace, Jeff Buente

Thanks to everyone for their interest in our VXSDR radios. Here’s a quick update on our status, with the traditional good news and bad news on the VXSDR-20.

First, the good news: we’ve always thought of the VXSDR radios as a family, with multiple related designs to fill different needs. Today, we’ve renamed the VXSDR-20 to the VXSDR-20-160, because we’re completing the design for its bigger brother, the VXSDR-20-600. The VXSDR-20-600 will have the same RF performance with 600 MSPS transmit and receive, as well as a 40 Gb Ethernet interface. We expect to be testing those boards later this year, and will consider offering them on Crowd Supply if there is interest.

Now, the bad news, which should not be a surprise to anyone: the supply chain issues which have prevented us from opening the VXSDR-20-160 for orders on Crowd Supply still continue. We have a small stockpile of the unavailable parts that we are reserving for our R&D programs, and we have a standing order with a distributor that will allow us to take Crowd Supply orders once it’s filled. We will let everyone know as soon as we have any reliable information on when that will happen.

We appreciate your patience, and we’re doing our best to make the VXSDR-20-160 available as soon as we can. Thanks again.
