Product code:SDRplay RSPduo
Brand:SDRPLAY Wideband Full Featured SDRs

The SDRplay RSPduo is a dual-tuner wideband full featured 14-bit SDR which covers the entire RF spectrum from 1kHz to 2GHz giving 10MHz of spectrum visibility. Combined with the power of readily available SDR receiver software (including ‘SDRuno’ supplied by SDRplay) you can simultaneously monitor two completely separate 2MHz bands of spectrum anywhere between 1kHz and 2GHz. The RSPduo provides three software selectable antenna inputs, and clocking features ideally suited to industrial, scientific and educational applications. All it needs is a PC and an antenna to provide excellent communications receiver functionality. A documented API allows developers to create new demodulators or applications around the platform.

Tuner 1 Antenna Coax Port Characteristics • 1kHz – 2GHz operation • 50Ω input impedance • SMA female connector

Tuner 1 High-Z Port Characteristics • 1kHz – 30MHz operation • 1kΩ input impedance (balanced) • Pluggable screw connector (CTB9208/3 plug supplied)

Tuner 2 Antenna Port Characteristics • 1kHz – 2GHz operation • 50Ω input impedance • SMA female connector • Selectable 4.7V DC out (see Bias T)

Reference Clock Input and Output • MCX female connector

ADC Characteristics • Sample frequency 2 – 10.66MSPS • 14 bit native ADC (2 – 6.048MSPS) •12-bit (6.048- 8.064 MSPS) •10-bit (8.064- 9.216MSPS) • 8-bit (> 9.216 MSPS )

Operating Modes • One receive stream, any IF mode or bandwidth, software selectable from either tuner, or…. •Two simultaneous receive streams from both tuners using low IF mode and bandwidth limited to 1.536MHz maximum •These modes are summarised in the table below.

Reference • High temp stability 0.5PPM TCXO • In-field trimmable to 0.01ppm.

External Reference Clock • When an external clock is applied, auto-detect will switch to the external reference. Ideally the external clock source should be connected to the RSPduo before power up
