Spectrum Signal Unveils Three New Design-Ins for flexComm

12/3/2004 - Spectrum Signal Processing Inc., announced three new design-ins for its flexComm product line. The SDR-3000 and HCDR-1000 design-ins address a range of signals intelligence and military communications applications as follows:

"These wins underscore two key advantages of our flexComm product line," stated Pascal Spothelfer, President and CEO of Spectrum Signal Processing Inc. "First, our products incorporate a comprehensive software stack including the SCA. This is extremely important for systems that need to interoperate with JTRS compliant networks. Second, as an early entrant into the software defined radio market, we have been able to partner with best-in-class companies to bring a compelling level of product integration to our customers. Our recent MRDP (MILCOM Rapid-Prototype Development Platform) product announcement illustrates this point."

The SDR-3000 is comprised of a heterogeneous processing platform incorporating Xilinx® field programmable gate arrays, IBM and Motorola PowerPCTM processors and Texas Instruments digital signal processors. The SDR-3000 platform can also include an integrated radio frequency transceiver and analog input/output modules. Software development tools include Spectrum's quicCommTM hardware abstraction layer to facilitate algorithm partitioning and programming and an SCA Core Framework (CF) to enable the set up and teardown of waveforms as mandated for all US military communications programs by the JTRS Joint Program Office. Spectrum's SCA board support package enables the SCA CF to identify and manage the platform resources. The SDR-3000 also includes a POSIX-compliant real-time operating system and an associated board support package.

The HCDR-1000 is a flexible heterogeneous processing platform that incorporates Xilinx field programmable gate arrays, IBM and Motorola PowerPC processors and Texas Instruments digital signal processors. The HCDR-1000 has been integrated with multiple third party RF front ends including those from DRS Technologies, Inc. and Eclipse Electronic Systems, Inc. Software development tools include Spectrum's quicComm hardware abstraction layer to facilitate algorithm partitioning and programming. The HCDR-1000 also includes a POSIX-compliant real-time operating system and an associated board support package.
