FUNcube Dongle Pro Plus

LF to L band software-defined radio

This is a complete redesign. To give you an idea, the new FCD has well over twice as many parts in its bill of materials, (240 discreet components in fact!)  To cater for this, the board is now a six-layer design (the original FCD was only double sided). To fit these extra parts in, they are soldered on both sides of the PCB. There are no fewer than eleven discrete front end pre-selection filters, including some serious SAW filters specifically chosen for the 2m and 70cm amateur bands. But that is just the start.....

  • Guaranteed frequency range: 150kHz to 240MHz and 420MHz to 1.9GHz
  • Typical frequency coverage: 150kHz to 260MHz and 410MHz to 2.05GH
  • TCXO specified at 0.5ppm (in practice about 1.5ppm)
  • 192kHz sampling rate
  • Extremely simple hardware setup, just two connections, an "in" and an "out":
  • Standard SMA female antenna port
  • USB 1.x type A male connection
  • Eleven discrete hardware front end filters including:
            6MHz 3dB bandwidth (10MHz at -40dB) SAW filter for the 2m band.
            20MHz 3dB bandwidth (42MHz at -40dB) SAW filter for the 70cm band
            Third- and fifth-order LC bandpass filters for other bands
  •  Front end LNA OIP3 30dB
  • Typical noise figures:
            50MHz 2.5dB
            145MHz 3.5dB
            435MHz 3.5dB
            1296MHz 5.5dB
  • Typical NFM 12dB SINAD measurements:
            145MHz 0.15uV
            435MHz 0.15uV
  •  No additional drivers required for Linux, OSX or Windows
  • Integrated 5V bias T switchable from software
