Boston, MA, USA – October 22, 2013 – PrismTech™, a global leader in software defined radio (SDR) solutions, today revealed plans to release its market-leading Spectra™ SDR product suite (Software Communications Architecture (SCA) core framework, middleware and tools) on Spectrum Signal Processing’s (Spectrum) SDR-4000 and SDR-7000 platforms.
Responding to customer demand from users of the Spectrum SDR-4000, PrismTech will provide Spectra support on the Spectrum SDR-4000 in the 4th Quarter 2013. The Spectra product suite will be available for both existing and new Spectrum SDR-4000 users allowing them to take advantage of PrismTech’s high performance, low-overhead, SCA v2.2.2 implementation.
Today PrismTech is also announcing Spectra support for the new Spectrum SDR-7000 platform is planned for early 2014. Thus the two Spectrum platforms will benefit from a common software stack supplied, supported and with future enhancements from PrismTech; the global leader in COTS SCA software.
PrismTech’s Spectra product suite is a fully-integrated package of COTS tools, middleware, core framework, and radio platform services and devices. It provides a state-of-the-art SCA development and deployment environment supporting General Purpose Processor (GPP), Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) processing elements.
Spectra will provide an integrated and fully supported solution for Spectrum SDR-4000 and SDR-7000 SCA waveform developers backed by the expertise and resources of the leading SCA COTS software vendor:
- Spectra CX – a model-driven development tool that simplifies, accelerates, and validates a significant proportion of the SCA development and deployment process will now offer a SCA build configuration for Spectrum SDR-4000 or SDR-7000
- Spectra Core Framework (CF) – a high-performance, ultra-low footprint, COTS implementation of the SCA v2.2.2 standard’s Framework Control and Service Interfaces is now available for Spectrum SDR-4000 and SDR-7000
- Spectra Common Data Bus (CDB) – a fully integrated and optimized SDR middleware stack. Spectra CDB runs across a wide range of GPP, DSP and FPGA processing elements and now provides comprehensive support for the Spectrum SDR-4000 and SDR-7000 processor sets
- Spectrum SDR-4000 and SDR-7000 platform services and device components
In addition, Spectrum SDR-4000 and SDR-7000 users will benefit from the on-going product investment and global customer support coverage of PrismTech’s Spectra product family.
“PrismTech is very excited to extend the availability of the Spectra development tools and run-time environment to the very capable SDR-4000 and SDR-7000 radio systems from Spectrum. Spectra is the most widely-used COTS SCA software today and is recognized for its capabilities, performance, enhanced productivity, robustness and standards conformance. Bringing Spectra to the Spectrum community has been a strategic objective for some time and is now a reality,” commented Vince Kovarik, Ph.D, CTO, PrismTech.
