Modifications for rc6:

  • Added support for bit-packing (packing ADC samples to 12bits instead of using 16bits, packing use 25% less USB bandwidth versus No Packing)
    (Thanks to MM6DOS for that amazing feature, thanks also to Pierre HB9FUF for the initial packing proof-of-concept)
  • Some cleanup/refactor/optimizations (mainly USB Stack)
  • MD5 for https://github.com/airspy/firmware/releases/tag/v1.0.0-rc6 (build on 2015-07-14):

Note:
- This firmware support only 10MSPS & 2.5MSPS.
- Becareful if you build it yourself the `date` of the day is included in `airspy_rom_to_ram.bin`, 
so if you want to have same MD5 you need to change your PC date to 2015-07-14 just before to build it.
