DesignSpark #LoveElectronics Giveaway

February is the month of love and here at DesignSpark we really love electronics… and we know that you do too!

So we gave you the chance to enter our competition to win some great electronics goodies, including products from SDRplay, STMicroelectronics, Infineon, Renesas and Digilent. 

Entry to the competition was free and closed at 23:59 GMT on Saturday 29th February.

The winners have been randomly selected and can be seen below, alongside the full list of prizes. 

Prize List:


SDRplay SDPdx

Winner: erdling


The SDRplay RSPdx is a major upgrade to the popular RSP2 and RSP2pro multi-antenna receiver design. It's a wideband full-featured 14-bit SDR which covers the entire RF spectrum from 1kHz to 2GHz.

Combined with the power of readily available SDR receiver software (including SDRuno supplied by SDRplay) you can monitor up to 10MHz spectrum at a time.

The RSPdx provides three software selectable antenna inputs, and an external clock input. All it needs is a computer and an antenna to provide excellent communications receiver functionality. A documented API allows developers to create new demodulators or applications around the platform.
