The BeMicro SDK evaluation board is a low-cost development platform featuring an Altera® Cyclone® IV FPGA. The board features DDR RAM 10/100 Ethernet, pushbuttons, DIP switches, LEDs, an 80-pin edge connector for attaching expansion boards, a microSD socket, and a temperature sensor. It plugs into the USB port of a PC for power and communication for configuring the FPGA and programming the on-board EPCS16 flash memory.
The BeRadio uses a 12 bit 10 Msps ADC from Linear Technology for the analog front end, and a Cyclone IV FPGA from Altera as the digital processing engine to convert the data stream.
The BeRadio Software-Defined Radio (SDR) Kit provides you with a:
Low-cost platform to learn basics of SDR techniques
Easy-to-use and -adopt learning methodology, no RTL experience necessary
Common hardware platform that can support multiple wireless standards
Obsolesce-proof of ever-changing SDR standards
