Raspberry Pi enthusiasts may be interested in a new piece of hardware in the form of the LimeNET Micro which utilises the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 to help democratise wireless networks in much the same way that the Raspberry Pi has democratised embedded computing. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the LimeNET Micro.
“As with existing integrated LimeNET platforms, the new LimeNET Micro is built on the very same revolutionary field-programmable RF (FPRF) technology and features the LMS7002M transceiver at its heart. However, this highly cost-optimised, single board solution also integrates GPS for high-accuracy timing, Power over Ethernet (PoE), and embedded compute for fully standalone operation.”
Examples of applications that can be created using the LimeNET Micro hardware include :
– Inexpensive enterprise and personal networks
– Rural, autonomous, and resilient networks
– Universal IoT communications hubs
– Rapid deployment infrastructure for emergency response
– Remote radio solutions for amateur radio and radio astronomy
– Integration into application-specific RF appliances
– Radio spectrum survey
– Passive wireless geolocation
– PHY and security research
– RF-aware robotics
For full specifications jump over to the Crown Supply website where the LimeNET Micro is now available to back with prices starting from $399.
