Red Pitaya STEMlab 122.88-16 SDR Kit Basic

Build SDR transceivers that can compete with state of the art products on market available today

RedPitaya 122.88-16SDR

Red Pitaya STEMlab 122.88-16 SDR Kit Basic is tailored for HF+50MHz SDR & RF applications that requires DAQ systems with high precision. The 122.88-16 SDR features improvements based on feedback received from HAM radio operators & research laboratories. The new device comes with two 16-bit ADCs, 50ohm inputs & 14-bit DACs 50ohm outputs. The board has a 3x bigger dual-core Arm Cortex A9 + Xilinx Zynq 7020 FPGA, ultra low phase noise 122.88MHz clock and 1Gbit ethernet connectivity.

RF inputs are improved in terms of distortions, noise & crosstalk which significantly improves receive and use of antenna diversity. A bigger FPGA provides more real-time processing capabilities. The clock was changed from 125MHz to 122.88MHz so it’s more hardware compatible with HPSDR. The new device has not changed form factor, so it directly replaces the current STEMlab platform. The improved performances of the STEMlab 122.88-16 SDR make it easy to build SDR transceivers & other scientific devices to compete with high-end products.

The DXZone merges amateur radio and Internet, since early internet days. Established in 1996 as a radio-related-mailinglist, has registered its domain name in 1998. Main goal is to review and promote ham-radio web sites, classifying them in categories. The DXZone is managed by ham radio operators with ham radio operators in mind.
