Lime Microsystems has created a new open source-defined radio called LimeSDR, which is now available for purchase on the Crowd Supply website for $ 315. LimeSDR is a low-cost, open-source, application-enabled platform (more on that later), a software-defined radio (SDR) platform that can be used to support almost any type of wireless communication standard. LimeSDR can send and receive UMTS, LTE, GSM, LoRa, Bluetooth, Zigbee, RFID and Digital Broadcasting, to name a few.
“While most SDRs remain in the field of RF and protocol experts, LimeSDR is usable by anyone familiar with the idea of an app store – it’s the first SDR to integrate with Snappy Ubuntu Core. This means you can easily download new LimeSDR applications from developers around the world. If you are a developer yourself, you can also share and / or sell your LimeSDR applications via Snappy Ubuntu Core.
The LimeSDR platform gives students, inventors and developers an intelligent and flexible device for manipulating wireless signals so that they can learn, experiment and develop with freedom from limited functionality and expensive proprietary devices. “
“EE, the largest operator in the United Kingdom and with the most innovative implementation of 4G, supported the campaign at the level of 100 bets! They will distribute the 100 LimeSDRs to educational institutions in the UK. “
Applications made possible by LimeSDR:
– Radio astronomy
