The Myriad–RF 1 board is a multi-band, multi-standard RF module, based on the LMS6002D transceiver IC by Lime Microsystems. It has one RF broadband output, one RF broadband input with digital baseband interface, established via a standard Hirose FX10A-80P connector. The board also provides the user with pin headers for power supply, reference clock, analogue input/output and Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) connections. It contains everything needed for it to be connected to baseband (BB) chipsets, Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), or to run independently in an standalone mode.
The Myriad-RF 1 board enables developers implement their products for a wide variety of wireless communication applications quickly and efficiently, given the flexibility of the solution. In addition, the designer can make use of the freely available ready-made board implementation, modify and manufacture to accelerate the development time.

The Myriad-RF 1 board can be used as a standalone board or in conjunction with the DE0-Nano Interface Board or Zipper Interface Board. The analogue differential IQ interface is also available directly on the Myriad-RF 1 board, along with RF connections. A full list of available connections is available on the page Myriad-RF 1 Connections.
