Using the Telemetry and APRS Applications

Faraday owners will find that the Telemetry and APRS applications are fun to play with. We encourage you to play with them shortly after going through the Quickstart guide! Telemetry Out of the box, a GPS enabled Faraday is quite capable. The GPS provides location awareness for Faraday without extra hardware. It is also a Read more about Using the Telemetry and APRS Applications[…]

Contribute to Faraday Software

Many of our customers just received their Faraday starter packs this past weekend! Shipping them was tons of fun, thank you for your orders. Several of you have already made it through our www.FaradayRF.com/Start guide and blinked the LED on the board. Congrats all! First blinks! @faradayrf pic.twitter.com/ONqHp4Oct6 — Mike (@notsureifsane) February 18, 2017 Right Read more about Contribute to Faraday Software[…]

First production batch Faraday PCBs

First Batch Radios Available!

Tuesday morning we sent out an email to the first 25 subscribers to the FaradayRF Newsletter with information on how to order Faraday as part of a priority group. This is a perk we mentioned several months ago on the newsletter. Anyone can order Faraday now however these 25 people have the ability to jump Read more about First Batch Radios Available![…]

Evolution of Faraday

We’ve come a long way with Faraday and it’s evolution has been fun to see. The concept of Faraday began at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY in 2010 while Brent and I were Electrical Engineering students. Deeply invested in K2GXT, the RIT amateur radio club, we were unsatisfied with what amateur radio technology Read more about Evolution of Faraday[…]

Faraday PCBA's Rev D1 from PCB:NG in anti-static bags

Faraday Rev D1 Test Batch Build

On Saturday December 10th we received a shipment of the first 12 Faraday Revision D1 PCBA’s from PCB:NG. This was a test batch to make sure the entire order was OK. This is a relatively complex build and double-checking now could save us a lot of headache down the road. If you are interested you Read more about Faraday Rev D1 Test Batch Build[…]

Faraday Rev D1 – Changes from Rev B

Rev B Faraday units were our last OSHpark boards. Purple, hand assembled, and in small prototype quantities. The goal of Rev B was to test out a few key improvements like a completely new power supply design and an integrated 100Ω to 50Ω balun, making the changes before a production run. As shown below there Read more about Faraday Rev D1 – Changes from Rev B[…]

Why Faraday is Different

Faraday in many ways has similarities to some of the ISM band development boards and projects already available. However, we’d like to clarify just what makes Faraday different. We often see Faraday compared to projects with use LoRa technology, GoTenna Mesh, or Ubiquiti hardware repurposed for amateur radio use. Here’s why Faraday is a completely different Read more about Why Faraday is Different[…]

Firmware Docs, Power Supply Testing, and Panelizing for Production!

We’re one week closer to production hardware shipping with our improved firmware. This past week has been an adventure in closing out any questions by testing our hardware and documenting firmware. Brent is realized just how much firmware he has written for this project. He’s been documenting C code on doxygen for several days straight Read more about Firmware Docs, Power Supply Testing, and Panelizing for Production![…]

Proxy, Telemetry, and Hardware Files!

We want to start showing some of the technology behind Faraday and therefore put together this quick video for our weekly update. This past week there were several key items completed, some of which shown in the video below, which validate our released architecture and move us closer to production. FaradayRF is also sticking to Read more about Proxy, Telemetry, and Hardware Files![…]
