Lunaris-SDR is a single board Digital Up and Down Conversion (DUC/DDC) full duplex HF+6m multi-mode 10W transceiver & a Vector Network Analyser, which is one of the finest SDR available.

Lunaris supports open source software :

  • PowerSDR Windows
  • GHPSDR-Linux
  • KISS CONSOLE -Windows
  • CuSDR
  • Gnu Radio
  • G0ORX's Android and Java based software
  • and other popular Open Source software

Lunaris-SDR+VNA incorporates the CEDA-Labz CHIRON DUC/DDC Receiver board. It is a highly integrated SDR with additional features built on-board - Vector Network Analyser, On board speaker, 10Mhz internal / external auto switching and Highly Thermal-Efficient Board design which will enhance your product life and will reduce frequency drifting trouble. Complete Lunaris SDR solution includes 10 watt linear amplifier and Low Pass Filters in a rugged aluminum enclosure.The Lunaris SDR enclosure provides sufficient cooling for operation in hot and humid environmentsFurther added OPTO-isolated PTT out so no more frying of FPGAS/rigs. Shielding provision has been added to Receiver Section- to have better crosstalk and EMI-RFI compliance.

 The Lunaris 610 SDR allows the user to easily configure the transceiver to use either local transmitter samples, or an external directional coupler/sampler with a direct connection the receiver input, to obtain high quality PureSignal samples.

Lunaris Transceiver outputs 10 Watt RF power on 160-10m and 6m amateur band. The LPF board consists of seven relay switched low pass filters for transmitter harmonic suppression. It has three external BNC connectors, described below:

  • Antenna 1 transmit-receive
  • Antenna 2 transmit-receive
  • Antenna 3 transmit-receive 

The Lunaris 610 SDR + VNA is an unmatched SDR+VNA in the market today.  The Lunaris 610 SDR provides unique usability features not available elsewhere.  CEDA-Labz is "user driven" and encourages interested users to email suggestions or wish lists of features you would like to see included in future products, we will be happy to respond to you.  Email to : cedalabz at gmail dot com

Lunaris is available in:

  1. Bare PCB :Bare board, Bill of Materials and Solder-Paste stencil file available for users who wish to construct a home built radio.
  2. Assembled and Tested Board with 30 days warranty
