Evaluating 9 of the Best Single Board Computers for Modern SDR Systems
This past August I had the privilege of attending and video-recording the TAPR Digital Communications Conference in Albuquerque, NM. For several years past, this conference was recorded by Gary Pearce from HamRadioNow, but Gary has since retired from making Ham Radio videos (the series was handed off to David Goldenberg, W0DHG, who is doing a great job with new episodes). In lieu of this fact, I spoke with Gary and with Steven Bible, the administrator of the DCC, and was permitted to take up the mantle of recording all of the forums and putting them on YouTube.
With this first forum, Scotty Cowling, WA2DFI, presents his findings for 9 of the best Single Board computers for modern SDR systems. Among these boards are, of course, the Raspberry Pi, but several others are also discussed. I thought this information was valuable and useful to those of us who want to do Amateur Radio projects. This applies not only to SDR Receivers and Transceivers, but also for dozens of other projects in our hobby.
As Scotty states in the video, lots of time and research was put into this presentation because the information he gathered isn’t readily available in one place. He spent quite a bit of time digging for the information about SBCs to present in this forum.
I hope that you enjoy watching this forum as much as I did.
