GPUs are increasingly being used in applications outside of graphics and have been popular for some time in both high performance computing (HPC) and machine learning. Thanks to technologies such as the CUDA parallel computing platform from NVIDIA and the Numba high performance Python compiler, the barriers to using GPUs are being lowered all the time, enabling their blistering performance to be harnessed in ever more compute-intensive applications.
The SDR Makerspace is a joint initiative of the European Space Agency (ESA) and Libre Space Foundation, in collaboration with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland. It brings together makers, open source hackers, radio amateurs and researchers, to tackle the challenges in using…
"The main idea for my narrowband transponder solution," Estevez explains, "is that the BeagleBone Black will just run some software which controls the LimeSDR Mini and streams IQ samples using Ethernet to and from another computer where all the heavy duty work is done."
Users of Lime Microsystems technologies, including the LimeSDR and LimeNET families, are invited to submit brief summaries of their projects and experimentations to highlight the breadth and diversity of the community in Lime's first Field Report Contest.
Describes the combination of Lime Microsystems' LimeSDR Mini and a Raspberry Pi single-board computer as "excellent for this type of research," proving that software defined radar projects "can be built at an affordable price at an amateur level without expensive radios and convoluted analogue gear."
Presentations available from the first day of the event include a look at the addition of support for Lime Microsystems' popular open LimeSDR devices, via the open source Lime Suite software, to the OsmoTRX project.
Lime Microsystems named as a provider of end-to-end technology for the CrowdCell Project effort to produce an open source cellular relay platform using general purpose processors (GPP) and software defined radio (SDR) technologies.
The company looks at real-world examples where the ability to connect Internet of Things sensor networks over high-bandwidth low-latency 5G connectivity to general purpose processing platforms running artificial intelligence algorithms is already making measurable improvements in yield, health, and safety.
Lime provides 16x low cost self-contained weatherproof base stations for the bi-annual 3 day festival for makers, artists, scientists and engineers.
