Multiple Use Cases:  Choose Your Path

RadioCarbon’s combination of an SDR SoM and high-power RF front-end allows you to significantly reduce radio system development time. The fully-functioning unit means you can instantly demonstrate concepts and kick-starts development of algorithms, waveforms and software — and ultimately empowers you to customize it to your final requirements.

A Flexible Development Platform

RadioCarbon can accommodate multiple use cases.  The standalone RF Front End is ideal for those integrating a separate radio with Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD).  The SDR development kit is ideal if you prefer a complete SDR with high power transmitter and Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD).

RadioCarbon RF Front Ends

The game-changing RF front ends are the real heroes of the RadioCarbon kit, with PAs based on Wolfspeed’s innovative GaN on SiC technology.
