Group DescriptionThis Discussion group is for FLEX radios using the SmartSDR architecture. The new hardware architecture has multiple processors including a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The FPGA supports direct Digital Down Conversion of the signal and provides tremendous processing power in the radio. SmartSDR is the software running on the radio controlling it all. The user interface is thin client and network connected. Radios currently include the Signature series models 6300, 6400, 6500, 6600 and 6700.
The group is "user owned and operated" and not affiliated with Flex Radio although employees are encouraged to participate. Third party vendors that provide related hardware or software accessories are encouraged to participate.
