Small Form Factor Software Defined Radio Development Platform (SFF SDP)

Product Type
SDR Reference Platform

Product Summary
The Small Form Factor (SFF) Software-defined Radio (SDR) EVM/DP is a unique new product that addresses the special portable SDR needs of military, public safety, and commercial markets. It was designed around the latest DSP and FPGA technology — Lyrtech’s area of expertise — as a low-cost, off-the-shelf, integrated hardware and software development solution. The platform offers multiple software development flavors ranging from the support of the model-based design environment to a complete SCA solution.

Product Description
The SFF SDR EVM/DP has three distinct modules — digital processing, data conversion, and RF modules — which offer developers flexible development capabilities. The digital processing module uses technologies such as the DM6446 DSP SoC from Texas Instruments and Virtex-4 FPGA from Xilinx to offer developers the performance necessary to implement full modem processing functions with varying requirements from both technologies supported on the same hardware. The data conversion module is equipped with dual-channel analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters for signal conversion. The RF module covers a frequency range between 360 MHz and 960 MHz, allowing it to support a wide range of applications. The products come with model-based design support using The MathWorks’s MATLAB/Simulink/Real-Time Workshop and Xilinx System Generator for DSP to rapidly deploy and validate algorithms on the DSP and FPGA. The SFF SCA DP offers a complete solution for developing and implementing SCA waveforms. The complete integration of Integrity real-time operating system (RTOS), SCA core framework, ORB, and development tools accelerates the design-to-deployment cycle of SCA waveforms. The unique combination of CORBA-enabled GPP, DSP, and FPGA of the SFF SCA DP allows all the processors to be taken as SCA resources without the need for a hardware abstraction layer. This makes the SFF SCA DP the most advanced SCA development platform on the market.
