At Hamvention in Dayton, Ohio, SDRplay demonstrated the core underlying technology behind “SDRconnect”
“SDRconnect” will be the new name for the multiplatform version of SDRuno (up till now we called it SDRuno V2)
In this interview by Julian Frost from Ham Radio Outlet, Steve KI5ENW gives an update on our progress in rewriting SDRuno to support multiple hardware platforms:
At Dayton, SDRplay demonstrated the completely rewritten Core DSP engine for Spectrum and Waterfall displays – with the prototype software running on a Mac M1 computer. We are also showing the networking capability by remotely accessing an RSP based in the UK.
This is still an early stage demo, and the software team have a lot to do to complete the graphical user interface.
Work is underway on the new graphical user interface which:
- Retains the style and popular features of SDRuno
- Offers a more consistent and intuitive layout
- Addresses fixes and improvements suggested by users ever since SDRuno was first adopted.
SDRplay plans to release the first version of SDRconnect before the end of 2022.
SDRplay is planning that SDRconnect will fully support the older obsolete RSP2 and RSP2pro products, although the original RSP1 (phased out in 2017) cannot be supported by SDRconnect.
(SDRuno V1.42 will continue to be available for RSP1 users).
The new graphical user interface will bring a lot of advantages based on what users have been asking for – like more consistency in the way panels and menus are organised making it more intuitive and easy to use, and the ability to lock panels together.
This is the video of what we demonstrated:
