Just Launched from Crowd Supply: KrakenSDR, a Phase-Coherent SDR for Passive Radar and RF Transmitter Localization

October 21, 2021 – Crowd Supply, the leading product development platform connecting hardware creators with early adopters and enthusiastic backers, announces the launch of KrakenSDR, a phase-coherent software-defined radio (SDR) featuring five channels and automatic calibration hardware. KrakenSDR offers a 4.5V bias tee on each port, enabling simple interfaces with external devices. With built-in coherence synchronization, KrakenSDR supports a range of applications including beamforming, passive radar, and radio direction finding.

KrakenSDR, developed by KrakenRF and launched with support from Crowd Supply, features a low-noise design and rugged, CNC-milled enclosure. Building off the previous KerberosSDR, KrakenSDR adds autocalibration and tracking of intermittent signals to the foundation of KerberosSDR software. Designed to run on a Raspberry Pi 4, KrakenSDR’s core DSP software is open source, while its direction-finding Android software is free for non-commercial use. KrakenSDR is suitable for use by both amateurs and professionals, helping astronomers to increase image resolution and enabling RF engineers to locate the sources of illegal broadcasts.

Introducing new dynamic features for exterior automotive lights with DLP® technology

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Exterior lighting, primarily used to illuminate ground areas near the vehicle door, can now be transformed into a projection system used for both vehicle communication and unique styling features. A small lighting module that utilizes automotive-grade digital micromirror devices, such as the DLP2021-Q1 or DLP3021-Q1, can display an endless number of patterns in any color imaginable as well as communicate warnings and alerts to drivers and other vehicles.

Software and Automotive Safety

Sponsored by Siemens Digital Industries Software

In the realm of automotive designs, safety must reign above all else. But the question remains: How can we innovate within the constraints of today’s safety standards? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rob Bates from Siemens about the role ISO 26262 plays when it comes to COTS and open source software, what certified software components are all about, and how heterogeneous multiprocessing can be helpful in your next automotive design.
