Competition – ADALM PLUTO – Software-Defined Radio Active Learning Module









The easy to use ADALM-Pluto kit is a high-frequency kit that enables you to gain in-depth knowledge about software-defined radio (SDR), that is, the setting of frequency bands and properties via software, for high frequency and wireless communication. The kit features a frequency range extending from 325 MHz to 3.8 GHz as well as a built-in transmit and receive channel. Users can familiarize themselves with the system with support from the book Software-Defined Radio for Engineers, which can be downloaded from for free. The book also describes a few experiments that can be done with the ADALM-Pluto kit.
