SDRplay RSP1B - 14-bit SDR Receiver

The SDRplay RSP1B is an enhanced version of the popular RSP1A, offering a powerful wideband 14-bit SDR receiver that covers the RF spectrum from 1kHz to 2GHz. The RSP1B comes in a rugged black painted steel case and boasts significantly improved noise performance. All you need is a computer and an antenna to enjoy excellent communications receiver functionality. It comes with a choice of SDRunoTM for Windows and multiplatform SDRconnectTM SDR software for Windows, MacOS, and Linux (provided free of charge by SDRplay). You can monitor up to 10MHz of spectrum at a time, and a documented API allows developers to create new demodulators or applications around the platform.

Key Benefits & Features:

  • New, enhanced version of the RSP1A in a rugged black painted steel case
  • Improved noise performance below 1MHz and in the 3.5-5.5MHz, 50-60 MHz, and 250-320MHz ranges
  • Improved signal handling at HF frequencies
  • Covers all frequencies from 1kHz through VLF, LF, MW, HF, VHF, UHF, and L-band to 2GHz, with no gaps
  • Receive, monitor, and record up to 10MHz of spectrum at a time
  • 14-bit ADC silicon technology for excellent dynamic range
  • Multiple high-performance preselect filters minimize phantom signal problems
  • Software selectable AM/FM & DAB broadcast band notch filters minimize intermodulation problems from strong interferers
  • Multiple individual receivers in any 10MHz slice of spectrum
  • Free use of Windows-based SDRuno software
  • Free use of SDRconnect SDR and server software for Windows, MacOS, and Linux
  • Multiplatform driver and API support including Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, and Raspberry Pi 4/5
