Benefits



FEATURE-PACKED, FULLY INTEGRATED, HANDHELD SDR

Designed with a focus on flexibility, the Matchstiq™ Z Series lets you adjust frequency, bandwidth, and gain to meet diverse mission needs. It's field-ready, easy to use, and high-performing. This SDR is all you need to take complex applications out of the lab and put them into the hands of users.



SDR ON THE GO

Less than 4” x 2” x 1” and under 6 ounces, the Matchstiq Z Series is ideal for on-the-go signal processing applications. An integrated magnetic mount allows the platform to attach to a cell phone or other portable device, deriving power and communications through a single USB-C port. As a stand-alone platform, Matchstiq Z Series can execute signal processing applications locally or interface to a host platform over USB.

benefits

Easy and High-
Performing

An intuitive user interface makes SDR not only accessible, but simple, while  high-performance GPS/GLONASS capabilities make for reliably accurate geolocation and time-stamping.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Software-Defined Radio (SDR)?

SDR is a radio communication system in which components traditionally implemented in hardware are instead implemented (via custom software) on a personal device or embedded computer system. SDR systems can be adapted to integrate with various communication applications. Once integrated, SDRs can be used to scan for radio frequencies, listen to FM radio, track aircraft with ADS-B, receive GPS signals, dabble in amateur radio, decode digital voice, and even bounce signals off the moon!

Learn More
How do Epiq's SDR products differ from others on the market?

Epiq's SDR solutions deliver unparalleled RF performance and flexibility in compact form factors, making them perfect for a range of applications: including mobile, portable, and space-constrained. With a wide tuning range from 70 MHz up to 6 GHz, our products can be used for things like spectrum analysis, RF recording, cellular network scanning, enforcing no-wireless policies, and more.

Learn More
Can I customize my SDR setup?

Yes, our SDRs, SDR platforms, and turnkey solutions are designed to be flexible and easily integrated. That means you can customize any of our products to fit your specific needs. 

To get started, request one of our dev kits. We have two options: Evaluation (EVK) and Platform Development (PDK). You can request a dev kit by filling out the form below. Once you do, we'll get back to you with details and next steps.

If you need assistance, Epiq’s team is always here to offer comprehensive support: including detailed product documentation and an active community for peer discussions.

Learn More
What are the data transfer options for your SDRs?

Our SDRs support various data transfer interfaces, including USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and PCI Express (PCIe), depending on the product.

Learn More
Which programming languages or frameworks do your products support?

Our SDRs support popular frameworks such as GNU Radio, and others. For programming, we support languages such as C, C++, and Python.

Learn More
Do your products support phase-coherent MIMO operations?

Yes, our SDR products, such as the Sidekiq™ X4, support multi-channel phase-coherent MIMO operations, making them suitable for a variety of applications.

Learn More
Can your SDRs operate standalone or do they require a host device?

Many of our SDRs can operate both standalone and as part of a host device, giving you the flexibility to use them as needed.
