Airspy R2 is an advanced open-source software defined radio receiver with adequate dynamic range, capable of sampling 10MHz of spectrum anywhere between 24MHz and 1.8GHz – and even beyond with extensions. It is the only high performance wide band receiver solution in the market that’s yet affordable.

Key Features/Specifications:

Continuous 24 – 1800 MHz native RX range, down to DC with the SpyVerter option

3.5 dB NF between 42 and 1002 MHz

Tracking RF filters

35dBm IIP3 RF front end

12bit ADC @ 20 MSPS (80dB Dynamic Range, 64dB SNR, 10.4 ENOB)

10MSPS IQ output

Experimental 2.5MSPS IQ output for low power devices (Raspberry Pi, Odroid, etc.)

Up to 80 MSPS when using custom firmware

Cortex M4F @ up to 204MHz with Multi Core support (dual M0)

0.5 ppm high precision, low phase noise clock

1 RTC clock (for packet time-stamping)

External clock input (10 MHz to 100 MHz via MCX connector) – Ideal for phase coherent radios

10 MHz panoramic spectrum view with up to 9MHz alias/image free

IQ or Real, 16bit fixed or 32bit float output streams

No IQ imbalance, DC offset or 1/F noise at the center of the spectrum that plagues all the other SDRs

Extension ports: 16 x SGPIO

1 x RF Input (SMA connector, 15kV ESD protection)

1 x RF Output (Loopthrough, U-FL, 15kV ESD protection)

2 x High Speed ADC inputs (up to 80 MSPS, U-FL, DC coupled)

4.5v software switched Bias-Tee to power LNA’s and up/down-converters

8 x programmable high speed gpio’s up to 100MHzv

3 x programmable synchronized clock outputs up to 160MHz

1 x core CPU clock output

1 x reset pin

2 x regulated +5.0 and +3.3v pins

1 x JTAG header

No drivers required! 100% Plug-and-play on Windows Vista, Seven, 8, 8.1 and 10
