I was searching for information what had been done with a LimeSDR Mini and a Beaglebone Black, of which I have several available. Thought it might be a good SBC to pair with a LimeSDR Mini.
Then I read this thread:
As mcbill stated in the OP in that thread, this is also my first post.
After reading mcbill’s thread something with some more power is obviously needed. I looked at the recommended Udoo X86 II Ultra, which seems like an excellent choice, then decided to check to see what else there is available that could be used as well.
I was looking for something with as much RAM and storage as reasonably possible. The Odroid H2 looked like a good candidate.
Intel Quad-core processor J4105 (14nm) with 4MiB Cache, up to 2.5Ghz(Single Thread) or 2.3Ghz(Multi Thread) Dual-channel Memory DDR4-PC19200 (2400MT/s) Total 32GiB RAM Space with two SO-DIMM slots 4 x PCIe 2.0 for one M.2 NVMe storage 2 x Gbit Ethernet ports 2 x SATA 3.0 SSE4.2 accelerator (SMM, FPU, NX, MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AES) Intel UHD Graphics 600 (Gen9.5 LP GT1) up to 700Mhz HDMI 2.0 and DP 1.2 multiple 4K/60Hz video outputs RTC / BIOS backup battery is included
I ordered one, plus 32 GB RAM and a 256 GB M.2 NVMe drive. I (hopefully) shouldn’t have to mess around with replacing hardware for this project for a while. I bought a few RFSpace UWB antennas but haven’t really put them to use (and have no idea as to whether they perform well). Too many projects, so little time.
Everything should be here within three or four days. I figured I’d design a custom enclosure for the H2 & LimeSDR Mini along with possibly a battery, although I haven’t looked into that yet. That will be a project for my 3D printer.
