LimeSDR Mini gets backing from FCP company

Lime Microsystems has announced the support of Frequency Control Products (FCP) company Rakon for its LimeSDR Mini platform. The Rakon oscillator - along with the Lime LMS7002 and Altera’s FPGA - is one of the three key components in the LimeSDR platform. Having the backing of Rakon enables the LimeSDR Mini to deliver its performance at a price point that makes SDR accessible.

“The LimeSDR Mini makes software-defined radio development radically more accessible,” said Darren Robinson, Rakon Sales and Marketing Director.

“Rakon invests in technology to develop the next generation of FCPs required for the fast moving communications industry. We are pleased to be partnering with Lime Microsystems to provide one of the core components for their open source software-defined radio solution.”

Ebrahim Bushehri, CEO of Lime said: “Rakon’s technology is key to enabling the full capabilities of the LimeSDR, so we’re delighted to have this backing. Crucially, it allows us to provide an unbeatable performance and price, therefore bringing in even more developers into RF system development.”

The LimeSDR Mini was created to bring some of the most advanced SDR equipment available to the market at an affordable price point. LimeSDR has also adopted an App-Store approach, partnering with Ubuntu. This allows developers to sell and share their apps to organisations and individuals, and allows them to download and get RF systems running within minutes.
