Wireless Masterclass Video Series

Back in March we hosted a 1-day LimeSDR workshop in London, in partnership with the BCS Open Source Specialist Group and Open Source Hardware User Group. For this Principle RF Design Engineer at Lime Micro, Dr Danny Webster, put together a series of presentations that provide an introduction to digital radio concepts, before moving on…

LimeSDR Made Simple Part 6: More Than One Way…

Receiving ASK/OOK signals in Pothos and GNU Radio. Welcome to the sixth instalment of LimeSDR Made Simple. Last time we looked at transmitting and receiving ASK (amplitude shift keying) signals in Octave. However, we mostly glossed over the modulation and techniques involved. In the next post(s) we will look at both receiving and transmitting single…

LimeSDR Made Simple Part 5: Putting Software in SDR

This is the fifth instalment of LimeSDR Made Simple and in the last we explored the software side of the software-defined radio, using the relatively simple to use dataflow programming environment, Pothos. Quite a break from the previous articles where we went into detail of the input stages of the LimeSDR. This time we will…

LimeSDR Made Simple Part 2: matching, LMS7002M RX & I/Q

This is the second in a series of posts on the LimeSDR platform, that aim to demystify using SDR in the real world and programming a simple example with confidence, through bite sized chunks. Last time we explored what the LimeSDR is and what it can achieve. In this article we will look into the LMS7002M…

LimeSDR Made Simple Part 1: Introduction

This is the first in a series of posts on the LimeSDR platform, that aim to demystify using SDR in the real world and programming a simple example with confidence, through bite sized chunks. What is SDR? Most that have found this article will already know the answer and to use an analogy, while a…

BT and EE LimeSDR Hackathon

When EE, a tier 1 network operator, decided to back the LimeSDR crowdfunding campaign this was a clear indication of the scale of the opportunity at hand. And not simply for operators to reduce costs and extend coverage, but for wireless innovation to be democratised and the marketplace opened up to companies developing ground-breaking technology…

LimeSDR RISC-V Student Project Announced for GSoC 2017

We’re excited to announce that in partnership with the Free and Open Source Silicon Foundation, we will have a student working as part of Google Summer of Code on, not only the integration of a RISC-V softcore in the LimeSDR FPGA, but also adaptation to a FuSeSoC based flow. The RISC-V core will replace a…
