Welcome to OsmoSDR

OsmoSDR is a 100% Free Software based small form-factor inexpensive
SDR (Software Defined Radio) project.

If you are familiar with existing SDR receivers, then OsmoSDR can be thought
of something in between a FunCube Dongle (only 96kHz bandwidth) and a USRP (much more expensive).
For a very cheap SDR (with limited dynamic range), you can use the DVB-T USB stick using the RTL2832U chip, as documented in rtl-sdr.

It consists of a USB-attached Hardware, associated Firmware
as well as GrOsmoSDR gnuradio integration on the PC.

The first generation hardware (1.2 MS/s) was available to interested developers from but is now sold out

Hardware schematics and firmware source code are kept in a git repository on
  • clone the repository like this: git clone


This is a (slightly better) picture of the current developer preview:
