The Booya SDR and Digitizer Boards

The Booya SDR is available in a 64 MHz or 100 MHz USB 3 verision and a 16 MHz USB 2 verision.

The Booya 64 MHz and 100 MHz SDR radio receiver samples the RF signal at 64MHz or 100MHz with 16 bits and streams the sampled signal into PC memory continuously in real time. The Booya software demodulates the signals down to baseband at the full bandwidth. The Booya digitizer boards plug into the Cypress USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Explorer Kit, included. The Cypress Explorer Kit provides the USB 3 interface to the PC. The Booya SDR includes an active Mini Whip antenna to allow good radio reception in the 0 to 32 MHz band. The BooyaSDR free open source software on the PC provides a fully functioning SDR receiver application demonstrating the full Booya digitizer capability.

The Booya 16 MHz SDR radio receiver samples the RF signal at 16 MHz with 14 bits and streams the sampled signal into PC memory continuously in real time. The Booya16 uses a USB 2 connection and receives signals between 0 and 8 MHz.
