This one is very interesting, but can GNURadio bits run on the Epiphany chip?
Paralella has Z7010 plus 16 core microprocessor and costs 99USD only.
Too bad we need to wait to order it.
The problem with the FPGA approach is that none of Xilinx's tools are open source, and they are usually not free of cost and often require a Windows based environment...
I am mostly familiar with Altera, so its SoCKIT costs 299USD, but it has
a huuuge FPGA (115k LEs) and in addition to above ones, it has VGA out
and audio out:
There's also DE1-SoC, which has a slightly smaller 85k LEs FPGA:
Do you have any figure in mind? What's your target price? How would this project compares to, say: http://myriadrf.org/projects/ or http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/What do you have in mind in term of specs, number of rx/tx, ...?
Bandwidth, MSPS, no of RX/TX and other parameters. Well, it's basically
choosing a transceiver or a pair of ADC and DAC.
