Here’s the SV1EIA usb2sdr board controlling the Si570 chip on the vfo kit from K5JHF/K5BCQ, the MCU and display unit are of course removed. And the Si570 board is clocking the LA6NCA QSD unit. I haven’t calibrated anything yet, but it works fine.

Yesterday I received the Si570 Controller and Frequency Generator Kit by K5JHF and K5BCQ.
And today, after 3 to 4 hours work the kit was ready for a test spin. My unit has the LVDS Si570 chip, the FIN-1002 LVDS to LVTTL converter with the TC1-1TG2+ output transformer. Here are a few pix…..

A few hours work and the kit is ready and working.
