LimeSDR Mini aluminium case


#1

I was wondering to buy aluminium case for limesdr-mini. Will aluminum cases be sold? Where else can I buy them?

@g0dfuzz3r ,

Doing a search on EBay, there are a number of cases for the LimeSDR and Lime Mini:

Use that link to find the case you need and you’ll be set.

The aluminium case as seen on Crowd Supply is not sold separately.

There are general-purpose aluminum enclosures available in many shops. Just chose the one where LimeSDR Mini will fit and drill a few holes. As a workaround you can also use a plastic or 3D-printed case and shield it from inside using either aluminum adhesive tape or conductive varnish, e.g. containing copper. However if your SDR heats a lot this can be a problem. Finally, you can solder a case using regular FR4 boards or make an enclosure using aluminum sheets.
