Early Bird (Second Flock) - LimeSDR

Save $50 off the $299 retail. This second flock of early bird LimeSDRs is made possible by further support from our manufacturing partners. 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.

From Radio Astronomy to Personal Telcos

Here are just some of the applications that are possible with the LimeSDR:

    Radio astronomy
    2G to 4G cellular basestation
    Media streaming
    IoT gateway
    HAM radio
    Wireless keyboard and mice emulation and detection
    Tire pressure monitoring systems
    Aviation transponders
    Utility meters
    Drone command and control
    Test and measurement
    Many more…

With state-of-the-art technical specs, fully open hardware and toolchain, and integration with Snappy Ubuntu Core’s app distribution platform, LimeSDR is limited only by our collective imagination.

"What makes LimeSDR interesting is that it is using Snappy Ubuntu Core as a sort of app store. Developers can make code available, and end-users can easily download and install that code."
