Running KrakenSDR on the Steam Deck
DragonOS creator Aaron has recently put out a few Tweets showing that he has been successful at getting his KrakenSDR to run on a Steam Deck. The Steam Deck is a handheld gaming device made by Valve, the creators of several famous PC games and the Steam game store. It is essentially a powerful handheld computer with screen and good battery life, so it makes an excellent mobile SDR computing platform too.
Aaron notes that the output power of the Steam Desk isn't enough to power the KrakenSDR itself, but after adding an external battery pack it works well.
Compared to update rates from what I recall on the Pi, this looks to be crushing it @ 75-80 with low latency. The config page is extremely smooth and the Spectrum and DOA tabs are really responsive. @rtlsdrblog pic.twitter.com/X7IVC1AI7K— cemaxecuter (@cemaxecuter) September 4, 2022
