How about these guys ? http://www.thinkrf.com/products.html

All Impressive INDEED!

I wonder what the pricing for ThinkRF products are and what will the
BladRF USB
be priced at?

The bladeRF is definitely nowhere close to what the thinkRF folks are
doing

  • but the market segments are different as well. The thinkRF guys are
    much
    more into high performance/SIGINT whereas bladeRF is good performance
    and
    highly integrated yielding a lower cost at the sacrifice of bandwidth.

The bladeRF is based on the LMS6002D RF transceiver with documentation
here:

https://github.com/chemeris/lms6002-documentation

The $400 price tag along with the 300MHz - 3.8GHz tuning range, 28MHz of
instantaneous bandwidth and bus powered over USB 3.0 superspeed to get
5Gbps full duplex are the biggest selling points. Full schematics can
be
found on the support page or directly:

It’s a good SDR for a very palatable price.

William,

Thanks for making me aware of this:

100Khz - 20Ghz for their SDR boards, but their Front ends are:

RFE0108 100 kHz to 10 GHz Radio Front End
High performance radio receiver front end with frequency tuning range
of
100 kHz to 10 GHz and capable of processing up to 450 MHz of
instantaneous
RF bandwidth.

All Impressive INDEED!

I wonder what the pricing for ThinkRF products are and what will the
BladRF
USB
be priced at?

That is the question, but ALL gorgeous stuff no doubt!

Sincerely,

Martin
