It contains the following products:

  • QIRX V1.0.8 "DAB-Only"

Windows

It contains the following products:

  • QIRX V1.0.7 "DAB-Only"
  • QIRX V0.9.7 "General-Purpose"
    • Both products contain the sources and the pre-compiled Binaries (in the "Release" directories). The binary "Release" directories of both versions are compiled upon the same "Common" codebase and usable independently of each other.
    • Third-party binaries.
    • dabTII.dll for DAB TII recognition (separate license), identical in both versions.
  • QIRX Common (V10.0.7). VS2015 solution necessary for the production of the two QIRX products.
  • SetupRemoteStub is an installer for the "StubForRemoteStart" listener together with the necessary I/Q data servers. It enables in a convenient way the use of the I/Q data servers rtl_tcp or RSP2_tcp on a remote machine (with respect to the QIRX runtime).
  • RSP2_tcp V0.9.3. It contains a VS2015 solution with all sources to produce a tcp/ip-based I/Q data server for the sdrplay product RSP2 (not! RSP1). The runtimes are included in the QIRX releases as binaries. As a C++ application, it might be produced and used completely independent of QIRX. For some of its features see the Version History .
  • Documentation and DAB+ Samples are not included.
