Design Files
The schematics and layouts for all the new daughterboards, including the
LFTX, LFRX, Flex400, and Flex2400 are now available on the download page
of ettus.com.  If you find any missing files, please let us know.

Daughterboard News
The Flex2400 board, which was released this week covers 2300-2700 MHz.
There is a filter on board which covers the ISM band (2400-2483 MHz),
but it can be bypassed easily, giving coverage to the full 2300-2700 MHz
band.  The additional bands covered include satellite, military, ham,
and other fixed wireless bands.

Due to a lack of demand at this time, there will not be a Flex1200 board
released for the 1.2 GHz Ham band.  Instead, those interested in that
band can purchase the Flex2400 board and modify it.  Only a few passive
components need to be changed to cover 1150 MHz to 1350 MHz.  Please
contact us for more details on how to do this if you are interested.

The next daughterboard to be released will be the Flex900.  It will
cover 800-1000 MHz, which includes an ISM band and cell phones.  With
easy modifications, it will cover the 1.6 to 2.0 GHz range, giving
coverage of more cell phones (PCS in the US), satellites, and other
fixed wireless bands.  Expect to see the Flex900 in about 1 month.

The LFTX is now in stock, as are all other released daughterboards.

There are no specific plans at this time for daughterboards covering
other bands.  If there is a band you are interested in which is not
covered (like 5 GHz), please let us know.

Antenna News
Up until now, the YAGI900, YAGI1200 and PATCH2400 PCB antennas have not
come with coax or connectors, and so were not usable "out of the box".
As of now, these antennas will come with 1 foot of hardline coax (.141")
with an SMA connector on it.  Nothing additional will be necessary
except some solder.  The prices have been adjusted to account for this.

If you have already purchased these antennas and would like to purchase
the coax alone, it is now available from the standard ordering page.
