2023.02 Release – 122.88MHz instantaneous bandwidth

Extending the bladeRF Sample Rate

The 2023.02 release adds the capability of extending the bladeRF’s sampling rate and the addition of 8-bit mode. This update takes advantage of the hidden AD9361 overclocking feature and overcomes the throughput limitation by adopting a new multi-sample packing architecture. The following features have been added.

  • AD9361 Overclock to 122.88MSPS IQ samples
  • 8-bit Mode Support: LibbladeRF and FPGA
  • 8-bit Mode Support: BladeRF CLI
  • 8-bit Mode Support: OsmoSDR  and gr-bladeRF
  • `generate` function added to CLI

Be sure to check out the updated API docs for more details on the new 8-bit mode. The update is available on bladeRF releases.

2022 in review

Thank you to all out of open source contributors, beta testers, and customers for a great 2022! As we move into to 2023 we would like to highlight some of the updates coming to libbladeRF. We estimate that in January or February we should have the software-only supersampling patch set merged into master. Several difficult to reproduce bugs that affected libbladeRF have been fixed in the past few months. As always, please compile bladeRF from the latest source code on GitHub to ensure having all the latest fixes. Lastly, we are more than one year into the global chip supply chain crisis. Fortunately with the help our vendors and patients of our customers we have been able to navigate the situation.

Happy New Year!
