• Acronym: IEEE 802.15.4 SDR with Zedboard
  • Short description: IEEE 802.15.4 standard compliant SDR with full communication stack, where MAC layer is running on TAISC engine. It supports flexible data rate ranging from 31.25kbps to 2Mbps and tunable RF frequency ranging from 70 MHz to 6 GHz.
  • Main features:
    • The transceiver is composed of independent TX and RX chains, therefore  simultaneous transmission and reception of the data is possible.
    • Single channel transceiver which provides flexible data rate (i.e., both standard and non-standard modes).
    • multi-channel transceiver capable of transceiving data on multiple channels concurrently.
