pingEFB is the first purpose-built ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast) receiver to be compatible with the innovative Stratux project, a full featured, homebuilt ADS-B platform.  Easy to assemble from off-the-shelf hardware, and compatible with a wide variety of Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) applications, Stratux has a passionate community of users and developers.


pingEFB provides compelling benefits over existing Software Defined Radio (SDR) solutions, including:
  • Dual-link ADS-B In on both 978 MHz (UAT) and 1090 MHz, requiring only a single USB port on the Raspberry Pi
  • Considerable power savings, dramatically extending battery life and decreasing cooling requirements
  • Built-in antenna offers new mounting options
  • Sacrificing no capability, it meets or exceeds all receive performance requirements specified by the ADS-B standards (DO-282B and DO-260B)
  • By offloading processing to the uAvionix exclusive Ping silicon, it considerably reduces demands on the host CPU
