The SDR-1001 from CesiumAstro is a High-Performance Software-Defined Radio that operates from 300 MHz to 6 GHz. It has been designed to operate in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) environments and is suitable for demanding digital signal processing and communications applications. The SDR includes 4 x 100 MHz receive channels, 4x 100 MHz four transmit channels, and a state-of-the-art FPGA in a credit-card-sized footprint. It supports DVB-S2X, LTE-grade waveforms, and other high-order modulations. This SDR requires a DC supply of 9 to 13 V.
The SDR-1001 has a general-purpose modem which is a pre-loaded communications solution that works out of the box. It offers a selectable data rate up to 62.5 MSym/s and supports BPSK/QPSK modulation schemes with forward error correction. The radio has on-board telemetry for temperature, power consumption, rail voltages, error reporting.
This Software-Defined Radio is available in a compact module that measures 84 x 50 x 13 mm with SpaceWire and UART (10GBASE-KR & 1000BASE-X - option) data interfaces. It is suitable for both military and commercial applications on LEO satellites and airborne platforms.
