Each FLEX-6000™ Signature Series software defined radio is built on a digital direct sampling receiver foundation. By removing analog mixers and components, the FLEX-6000 family provides an ultra-quiet reception experience, ensuring you can see and hear the weak ones. The companion direct digital up-conversion transmitter creates the purest transmitted signal available, putting the “clear” in “loud and clear.” Utilizing Spectral Capture Units™ (SCU) for RF to digital conversion along with an ultra high-performance on-board signal processing and control system to perform demodulation and modulation, filtering, and audio stream management results in an incredible receiver dynamic range, ultra-low phase noise and phenomenal received signal clarity.
All of this technology is built on a network-ready Ethernet platform ensuring high-performance today and compatibility for the future.
To harness the full capability of the FLEX-6000 Signature Series family of SDRs is SmartSDR, the software “ecosystem” of the radio platform. It organizes all the signal processing power in the radios into an advanced radio fabric. SmartSDR understands the capabilities of each SCU and how to harness its power. SmartSDR for Windows or SmartSDR for iOS provides the “presentation layer” or GUI client used to interact the radio and to view the RF spectrum using high definition panadapters and waterfall displays.

As FlexRadio Systems’ flagship SDR, the FLEX-6700 is a dual SCU direct sampling transceiver that provides general coverage HF/6m and VHF reception along with standard features such as a wide-range ATU and optimized ham band preselectors for each SCU.
The FLEX-6500 is a single SCU direct sampling transceiver that covers the HF and 6m bands. It has the same standard features, options and performance characteristics of the FLEX-6700 making it an exceptional value for high-performance ham radios.
As FlexRadio Systems’ mid-range SDR, the FLEX-6300 is a single SCU, dual Slice direct sampling transceiver that provides general coverage HF/6m and with optional features such as a wide-range ATU and front facing handles.
Maestro is a portable, self-contained touchscreen-based control console that can be used with any FLEX-6000 Signature Series SDR. It provides a tactile interface for the more common radio controls and allows you the freedom to operate a FLEX-6000 without using a PC.
