vChameleon Logo





vChameleon is Vanteon’s first Software Defined Radio (SDR) IP platform. This integrated, ultra-flexible SDR platform can be configured for a wide range of characteristics and behaviors. The vChameleon SDR has a performance-enhancing RF Front End (RFFE) to improve on the AD935X FE. This high-performance SDR is positioned at a uniquely low-cost point and capable of supporting thousands of endpoint radios.


Vanteon’s vChameleon SDR can be leveraged into a wide variety of applications such as:

  • Smart Meter Collectors and Endpoints
  • SCADA-based system as part of the energy supply chain
  • Security and other monitoring products
  • Manufacturing test equipment
