SmartSDR v2.3.9 Now Available

FlexRadio Systems announces the immediate availability of SmartSDR v2.3.9 for the FLEX-6000 Signature Series SDRs.  SmartSDR v2.3.9 is a General Availability (GA) release containing new features and fixes for SmartSDR for Windows, SmartSDR for Maestro, SmartSDR CAT and DAX.

SmartSDR 2.3.9 can be downloaded from the FlexRadio Systems web site. Please download and review the SmartSDR v2.3.9 Release Notes  prior to installing SmartSDR v2.3.9 to ensure an optimal software installation experience.

A software license for the FLEX-6000 is required to run SmartSDR v2.3.9.  If your FLEX-6000 has been authorized to run a previous version of SmartSDRv2, re-authorization is not required.

If prompted to upgrade your SmartSDR license, obtaining and validating a license for your FLEX-6000 software defined radio is a simple process.  Once the radio and client have network access to the Internet, just load any version of the SmartSDR v2.x software on your PC or Maestro.  In the radio chooser, if a radio requires a license, a status message will indicate a license is required before connecting to the radio and updating the firmware.  A “Buy” button is also presented so that you can conveniently purchase a SmartSDR v2.x license using our Online Store.  Please see details below regarding purchasing a SmartSDR software license for your radio.

The following highlights are SmartSDR specific items:

Added Zoom to Segment on Panadapter: A Zoom to Segment button has been added to panadapter display on SmartSDR for Windows and the Maestro.

Intermittent and Random Firmware Crashes: Several build process changes have been made that may address the recently reported intermittent firmware crashing behavior.  These changes may not address all of the issues reported so we are still continuing to investigate the root cause of issue #6450.

Fixed Elevated Panadapter and S-meter for the FLEX-6000(M): An FPGA gain scaling issue resulted in the s-meter and the panadapter levels being approximately 7 dB higher than actual signal levels. This issue has been addressed in SmartSDR v2.3.9

Fixed Network Health Packet Loss over a VPN: Due to the network changes introduced in SmartSDR v2.3.7 to address issues using SmartLink over networks that do not allow packet fragmentation, the network Health indicator was incorrectly reporting packet loss values, particularly  when VPNs were being used.  The logic used to determine network health metrics has been modified to accommodate the new VITA-49 network transport characteristics.

Fixes for the Spots Feature: Multiple Spot fixes are included in this release.  Please see the ChangeLog for more details.
