The MiniTiouner has been developed and designed by Jean-Pierre F6DZP. This is a DVB-S/S2 receiver and a measurement tool that works with the software "Minitioune"
Original schematics are here : http://www.vivadatv.org/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=366
Several MiniTiouners has been created in different countries. For the BATC, a MiniTiouner pcb has been created by Brian G4EWJ
The MiniTiouner hardware is designed for home construction - this zip file contains all the project documentation:
Colin G4KLB has done an excellent video on constructing the MiniTiouner:
We can use different kind of NIM ( Network Interface Module)
these NIMs must have STMicroelectronics chips zero tuner chip can be : STB6100, STV6110, STV6111, STV6120 demodulator chip : STV0903, STV0913, STV0910 NIMs that can be used: * Eardatek EDS-4B47FF1B+ * Sharp F7VZ0169 * Samsung DNBU10711IST * Samsung DNBU10512IST * LG TDQX-S001F * Serit SP2246 * Serit FTS-4335 The NIM Serit FTS-4335 has a different pins configuration (40pins, not 26 pins) , so an adapter for "old pcbs" has been designed by Brian G4EWJ
When you have built your MiniTiouner, you can check it using the software "TestMyMiniTiouner" included in the Minitioune software package.
