The goal is to create a set of low cost experimentalist RF modules to be used with the Beagle Bone Black and a PC. The focus is on simplicity, experimentation, and hand constructible modules. Large or expensive FPGAs and ADCs are avoided. A significant goal is to provide a relatively easy platform to explore advanced topics in signal processing and RF while leveraging existing software packages.
Three boards partition the functionality. Each board is useful on its own and is suitable for hand construction and modification. The following illustrates some of the basic configurations.
