Looks like there will be a new SDR player in town soon, the LimeSDR.... 100Khz - 3.8Ghz this is going to be one to watch, no prices yet, but the specifications seem good, we are waiting with baited breath for the results of any tests, I hope the company will provide windows API's and ExTIO interfaces so that many of the SDR users already out there can take advantage of this radio.
Specs: Key components:
- LMS7002M Lime Microsystems Transceiver with continuous Frequency range of 100 kHz – 3.8 GHz (Datasheet)
- Cyclone IV EP4CE40F23 Altera FPGA (Datasheet) also compatible with EP4CE30F23
- USB3 CYUSB3014-BZXC Cypress Microcontroller (Datasheet)
- 4 x TxOut and 6 x RxIn U.FL connectors for RF cables
- microUSB3 connector or plug, external power supply (optional) and status LEDs
- 256 MBytes of DDR2 SDRAM (Datasheet)
- Size: 100 mm x 60 mm
- Interface: USB3 for control, data transfer and power
- Power Output (CW): up to 6.5 dBm
- Covering: Wi-Fi, 2G, 3G, LTE, any other air interfaces
I think this could be a great device if the company support it right and don't just tie it to GNURadio, if the TX side is using the OpenHPSDR protocols, the SDR-Console V3 should be able to support the TX also...
