New Product: Lobo Software Defined Radio System now available

Basis Functional, Inc is pleased to announce the successful completion of the prototyping stage for its signature ‘Lobo’ product. The Lobo Software Defined Radio (SDR) System is a high end Radio Frequency (RF) processing system. It features a 2x2 MIMO based transceiver, an Intel i7 processor, 32 gigabytes of RAM, a one terabyte NVMe high speed storage device, and plenty of other high speed IO. The 12-bit RF transceiver is capable of performing complex sampling at over 60 megasamples per second at frequencies up to 6 GHz.  

Lobo is the second RF processing system released by Basis. It joins the Renni Software Defined Radio System which is better suited for embedded applications with strict size, weight and power constraints.  

Lobo comes with the clearSDR software framework. The clearSDR framework is a feature-rich Digital Signal Processing platform with a focus on ease of use and compatibility. It comes with a built-in Spectrum Analyzer, Data Recorder, RF Transmitter, RF Anomaly Detector, RF Packetizer, as well as numerous other features. The System runs a modern Ubuntu Linux Operating System. 

Lobo is housed in a custom 8” x 6.5” x 2” aluminum (6061) enclosure which is designed by Basis to efficiently remove heat without the need for external airflow. The system weighs in at 6 pounds, nominally consumes 18 Watts, and is designed to operate at temperatures up to 70 degrees Celsius.  

Lobo is in stock and available immediately for purchase at More information can be found on the Lobo product page.
