FreeSRP Alpha

open source software-defined radio

FreeSRP Alpha

Available now on Crowd Supply starting at 420 USD

The FreeSRP project is joining Myriad-RF! Myriad-RF is home to many open source hardware and software projects involving software-defined radio -- this includes the LimeSDR platform, and the SDR driver and framework packaging projects. By joining MyriadRF, I hope to bring the FreeSRP to a wider community and make the project more accessible to external contributors and to end users. I also hope that the FreeSRP will be able to add more diversity to the available Myriad-RF hardware platforms.

Software defined radio (SDR) allows you to use one single but completely programmable transceiver device for modulating and demodulating many different types of RF signals. A wideband device such as the FreeSRP can thus be programmed and used to interact with lots of different wireless protocols like FM radio, TV, GSM, 802.11 or GNSS.

Powerful hardware

  • 70 MHz to 6 GHz center frequency
  • 61.44 megasamples per second
  • 12 bit resolution
  • Full duplex operation
  • Artix 7 FPGA and USB 3.0 interface
  • High speed expansion connector

Free and open source

  • C and C++ libraries and GNU Radio integration
  • Firmware and FPGA design
  • Schematics and layout
    • Available now in the CircuitMaker repository
    • KiCad files coming soon!

The FreeSRP is fully compatible with GNU Radio and Pothos/SoapySDR! The open source FreeSRP library includes useful command-line tools and allows you to write your own applications.
