I’m looking at getting a LimeSDR however I’m a digital nomad, and so size, weight, and ruggedness really matter. Does anyone have any measurements of the dimensions and weight of the Acrylic vs Aluminium cases available on CrowdSupply? Any experience of how well the cases survive being thrown around etc?
Also, one of the things I’m looking at is use for receiving (and maybe sending) spread-spectrum (FHSS) in the 2.4GHz ISM band. Firstly, how quickly can the LimeSDR change (TX/RF) frequencies, ideally without custom firmware?
Secondly, I’ve read some discussion that the 60MHz bandwidth limit may be able to be circumvented with custom firmware - that the limit is the USB3 bandwidth rather than on-board. Has anyone worked on this? For example, I’d like to monitor 2.4-2.5GHz, and while it would be great to send the full datastream to the PC, it would be sufficient to, for example, just send a custom datastream reporting frequency spikes above a certain noise floor - which could then be used to ascertain the frequency hopping algorithm/key used by a 3rd party.
Thanks in advance!
