HPSDR - Metis - High Speed Interface
METIS is a high speed PC interface. While the original Ozy board has served us well to date, in order to implement some of the future HPSDR projects we are going to need a faster interface between the various boards on the Atlas bus and the PC. METIS is a kick off point for this project. Since this board will not need to support the SDR1000 there will be room for testing other high performance interfaces. Metis an Atlas size board that contains a large, leaded, Altera Cyclone III FPGA connected to a Gigabit Ethernet PHY.
More detail are available at the Metis Wiki Page.
Currently out of stock. Expected ship date for new orders is mid July.
METIS IS SOLD ON AN AS-IS BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.
All Metis boards will be tested prior to shipment, and all boards will be working when they are shipped. To the extent that we have available inventory, we may, at our discretion, agree to a one time only exchange.
This is a low volume production, experimental item. TAPR is a small, not- for-profit organization of volunteers who have helped facilitate this project because we believe it is a cool thing to have. In order for TAPR to be able to offer this board at all, we must rely on the support of all users in the HPSDR community. The Metis board is basically a group buy that we have chosen to pre-build because of the difficulty of assembly. TAPR expects that Metis buyers will seek help on the HPSDR Discussion List before looking to TAPR for problem resolution.
The price for the Metis is:
$ 395 US for members of TAPR
$ 395 US for non-members+ shipping/handling if applicable.
Shipping and Handling
Shipping and Handling within the US will be by USPS Priority Mail.
International shipping costs are calculated as closely as possible. If the actual cost exceeds the estimate by more than $5.00, TAPR will contact you to get approval for the additional funds. TAPR uses insured Priority Mail International, unless the purchaser requires something else.
