Epiq Solutions Develops Wideband RF Transceiver SDR Module Running Linux On Zynq SoC

Epiq Solutions, a company from the USA, has included a new member of its Sidekiq line of Software-defined radio (SDR) add-on cards called the Sidekiq Z2. Dimensions of this card are only 51 x 30 x 5mm, the size of a full-size mini-PCIe card, the Sidekiq Z2 computer-on-module is advertised as “the world’s smallest wideband RF transceiver + Linux computer in a product-ready module”. The module is most suitabl ...

Exploring the Open Source Ethernet Broadcaster

In this second and final post we will go deep inside the Ethernet audio streaming transceiver firmware. Recently, we have presented an Ethernet audio streaming unit. In particular, we have shown how to configure the boards to work with other similar devices or with VLC Media Player, setting up a point-to-point or a broadcast streaming in all possible configurations. Also in the first episode, we analyzed th ...

Teardown and Experiments with a Doppler Microwave Transceiver

I got a couple of Microsemi’s C900502 10.525 GHz X-band Doppler radar motion sensors a while ago. This batch was made in UK and had “UK patents 2243495 and/or 2253108 apply” printed on the case. I have seen a teardown of an HB100 Doppler radar module before and was wondering if I this one is any different inside. The C900502 transceiver has a very sturdy metal casing. It is measured at roughly 5cm by 5cm by ...

Universal RC5/RC6 transceiver using PIC16F628

This project is an expansion from another project from this website. On the one side you can read the RC5, RC5X and RC6 codes from remote controls on a LCD and on the other hand you can send all thinkable RC5, RC5X and RC6 codes to a device. Besides is for this project a PCB layout drawed to make it still more easier for you. The IR receiver: When the TSOP1736 (IR receiver) receives an infrared (IR) signal ...
