Headless HF/VHF Transceiver

FlexRadio Systems introduces the FLEX-5000™ family of ultra high performance Software Defined Radio transceivers. The FLEX-5000A integrates all I/Q data and hardware control over a single FireWire® (IEEE-1394) connection to a user provided computer. Sound cards and multiple cables are no longer necessary. Convenience and ease of setup are built right in!

The "workhorse" of the family is the FLEX-5000A . The same receiver and transmitter are common throughout the entire FLEX-5000 family, so no matter if you have the FLEX-5000A or the fully integrated FLEX-5000C™, you still have the same outstanding performance and capabilities.

The supplied open source software, PowerSDR, creates a powerful and flexible solution. The number of memories is limited only by the PC hard disk space.

The FLEX-5000 connects to the PC via FireWire.
