Introducing SABR Micro
Software Agile Baseband Radio
Tiny, powerful, and easy.
The SABR SM Series changes the traditional approach to software defined radios. Smaller than your average deck of cards, bus-powered, and
built into a rugged, thermally coupled aluminum casing, SABR won't take up much room on your lab bench can be easily integrated into existing
devices. Out of the box SABR supports some of the most popular SDR and engineering platforms, plug and play.
If you're looking to roll your own SDR solution, our developer-friendly API doesn't require preconfiguration or lengthy image loads - even a minimally RF-experienced coder can be working with signals using C#, C++ or other languages like Python via our ZMQ interface, within minutes.
Start simple, and grow.
The base SABR SM3000 supports 40 MHz to 6 GHz transmit and receive. It's bus-powered via USB-C, so no external bricks or power leads are needed. It operates at full USB 3 speeds, to support 60+ MHz of bandwidth at 12 bits. (It's USB 2 compatible at lower bandwidths, though!) No need to know obscure chipset configurations, just tune to your frequency and go. But SABR is also up to the challenge of operating on its own: SABR includes user-accessible space on the low power draw Artix-7 FPGA and onboard DDR RAM, so engineers can go beyond.
Designed to adapt.
SABR's general I/O interface allows for integrated extensibility. Extensions coming soon include an HF converter that will allow SABR to operate seamlessly below 40 MHz, transparently to any host programs or API implementations. And a switchable filterbank to get the most from your signal in the field.
