Here we take a look at the Pluto+ which has all the features the original Adalm Pluto should of had.
Pluto+ is a software-defined radio platform that supports 2TX 2RX, supports Gigabit Ethernet and Micro SD card. The design draws on the well-known ADI ADALM-PLUTO and improves its shortcomings.
Based on the improvement of the famous ADI SDR, XC7Z010, 512M memory, 32M Flash, supports dual-receiving and dual-transmitting (AD9363 has been hacked into AD9361 by default), the frequency supports 70M-6Ghz full duplex transceiver, Gigabit Ethernet interface, TF Card expansion, support TF card startup. JTAG, UART, Microusb 2.0 are all important, and several GPIOs can be used as extensions.
Use 40M voltage control temperature compensation crystal oscillator 0.5ppm and support external clock input, you can switch the internal and external clocks through the jumper cap. Also reserved the PTT button interface, using optocoupler isolation
The radio frequency part adopts independent shielding cover to isolate interference.
Support mainstream SDR software applications, SDR#, Sdrconsole, HDSDR, SDRangle, spectrum analyzer and other software.
