PCIeSDR boards are primarily supplied with Amarisoft solutions.
The hardware exists in several variants which differ in the available bandwidth or the number of Rx / Tx ports. There is also a variant with a CPRI interface. There is available integrated GPS for precise time and frequency synchronization. Clock / PPS input and output is also available. Hardware is a closed source. The FPGA gateware comes in binary form. Drivers for the Linux system are supplied in the form of sources including build and installation script.The higher-level driver includes a DSP, a calibration stage, and the gateware update. It is in the form of a closed source dynamic library named libsdr.so. The C API for Linux / x86 is in the form of a header file libsdr.h which also serves as brief documentation.
