Tool Index

Software Defined Radio’s

RTL-SDR - Very low cost (~$30) receiver operating from about 52MHz to 2200MHz.

SDRPlay RSP1a - Medium cost (~$160) receiver operating from 100 Khz to 2000 MHZ. Device includes a lot of selectable filters (to cancel broadcast FM, WiFi interference, PC interference etc).

HackRF One - Capable of transmission or reception of radio signals from 1 MHz to 6 GHz. Open source hardware platform that can be used as a USB peripheral or programmed for stand-alone operation. Cost ~$340

Ettus Research USRP B200 - Universal Software Radio Peripheral with continuous frequency coverage from 70 MHz –6 GHz. Wider bandwidth and higher resolution ADC/DAC than the HackRF; cost with enclosure ~$875.

Debugging Tools

JTAGulator - open source hardware tool that assists in identifying OCD connections from test points, vias, or component pads on a target device.

FlySwatter2 - In-circuit JTAG debugger and programmer.

Test Enclosures

Ramsey STE-3000 Shielded Test Enclosure - Faraday cage for isolating RF signals

IC Decapsulating

B&G International Decapsulator Model 250 - Acid etching decapsulation tool from the early 2000's
