    Hi Dirk, when I changed the code to work with T4.1, I also used two PSRAM chips and checked whether that would work. it does not work! The reason is not the CPU power, which the T4 has more than enough, but the...

    In the context of Software Defined Radio dealing with analytical (complex) signals, builders often use an IF at exactly samplerate-divided-by-4, ie. in your case 192ksps / 4 = 48kHz Then you are able to use a...

    I am not at all familiar with FAUST, but by looking at the webpage it seems that there are things that can be very easily done with a T4.1 (all the filtering stuff) and more complex/demanding things (pitch shift --> CPU...

    Could you specify your project and the kind of DSP you are planning? Otherwise there is no chance anyone could help you with an idea.

    ??? Could you be a little more specific in your question? I think the T4.1 is more than capable of doing complex DSP.

    Yes. At the moment it is programmed like that. Synch is not a problem, because both, the ADC and the DAC use the same master clock MCLK provided by the Teensy. Paul, did you already build a Teensy Convolution SDR? If...

    Not sure what you mean exactly? What are "valid channels"? Do you want an automatic frequency scan search for stations and save their frequencies in memory? That is not implemented at the moment. 73 de Frank
