Tool IndexEdit

  Software Defined Radio’s

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

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.

  IC Decapsulating

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