BeRadio SDR Kit

The BeMicro SDK evaluation board is a low-cost development platform featuring an Altera® Cyclone® IV FPGA. The board features DDR RAM 10/100 Ethernet, pushbuttons, DIP switches, LEDs, an 80-pin edge connector for attaching expansion boards, a microSD socket, and a temperature sensor. It plugs into the USB port of a PC for power and communication for configuring the FPGA and programming the on-board EPCS16 flash memory.
