HackRF ONE by NooElec & Great Scott Gadgets

So today I received my first ever HackRF ONE from NooElec. Thanks Guys!

The HackRF ONE is manufactured by Great Scott Gadgets, however this version is sold on by NooElec in an Aluminium case.  This not only adds better protection to the circuit board, but it also looks far more professional than those supplied in a plastic case.

Not only does this SDR receive, it also transmits too! Which makes it a great tool for some rather interesting radio projects.  Here are some specs of the HackRF ONE:

  • 1 MHz to 6 GHz operating frequency
  • half-duplex transceiver
  • up to 20 million samples per second
  • 8-bit quadrature samples (8-bit I and 8-bit Q)
  • compatible with GNU Radio, SDR#, and more
  • software-configurable RX and TX gain and baseband filter
  • software-controlled antenna port power (50 mA at 3.3 V)
  • SMA female antenna connector
  • SMA female clock input and output for synchronization
  • convenient buttons for programming
  • internal pin headers for expansion
  • Hi-Speed USB 2.0
  • USB-powered
  • open source hardware

Keep an eye out on my YouTube page for upcoming videos where I will be exploring the RF hacking possibilities the HackRF ONE provides 🙂
