Sidekiq SDR (MiniPCIe and M.2)


Product Description

The Sidekiq family of products provides a breakthrough small form-factor software defined radio (SDR) transceiver solution, ready for integration into systems that support either MiniPCIe or the more recent M.2 card form factors. With a 70 MHz to 6 GHz RF transceiver plus programmable logic, millions of host devices (laptops, tablet computers, embedded computers, etc) can immediately be transformed into RF processing powerhouses with the addition of Sidekiq.
