As explained here, PandwaRF is not a SDR.

  • A SDR sends I/Q samples directly (over USB) to the host. This allows the I/Q demodulation to be made by the SW running on the host.
  • PandwaRF doesn’t send the I/Q samples to the host over USB. These I/Q samples are directly demodulated by the chipset and the demodulated data is then sent to the host.
