Press Release
Maveriq Maveriq™

Epiq Solutions' Maveriq™ SDR is an advanced software defined radio platform combining multiple RF transceivers, internal solid state drive for data recording, and a gigabit ethernet interface for high speed data access. Maveriq™ introduces a paradigm shift in signal processing capabilities packaged in a portable, low power platform, where previous solutions required large and bulky hardware configurations. Combined with a library of ready-to-run specialty software applications, Maveriq™ can immediately be used to solve challenging signal processing requirements on day one.
