PrismTech Announces the Addition of SCA 4.0 Middleware to its Spectra DTP4700 SDR Development and Test Platform

PrismTech™, a global leader in standards-based, performance-critical middleware, today announced that it will soon be adding Software Communications Architecture (SCA) 4.0 middleware support to its Spectra™ DTP4700 Software Defined Radio (SDR) development and test platform.

This innovation is a significant application and demonstration of PrismTech’s Spectra Common Data Bus (CDB) embedded middleware to facilitate the inter-operability and portability of application components deployed across different processors on a SDR platform (i.e. General Purpose Processors (GPPs), Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)). Spectra CDB can support SCA-compliance for both SCA 2.2.2 and SCA 4.0 specifications.

Spectra DTP4700 is a complete SDR development and test environment that is ideally suited to the development of SDR applications (e.g. waveforms) designed to be deployed on platforms that meet the size, weight and power (SWaP) constraints required in next-generation wireless systems. Spectra DTP4700 is an OMAP3 and Linux-based platform that comes complete with a SCA 2.2.2-compliant Core Framework, SCA-compliant ORB middleware, SCA platform device software, advanced RF capability (covering either 30-1600MHz or 400-4000MHz), and two test applications (audio and digital FM waveforms). Spectra DTP4700 platforms are also fully supported by PrismTech’s market-leading Spectra CX application development tool, which provides developers with advanced component modeling, code generation and compliance validation capabilities.

The Spectra CDB SCA 4.0 middleware provides compliant implementations of the new ‘Full’, ‘Lightweight’ and ‘Ultra-lightweight’ CORBA® profiles.

“By adding SCA 4.0 middleware support to Spectra DTP4700, we further PrismTech’s strategy of supporting SCA compliance across the radio. This in turn facilitates more efficient component inter-operability and portability, resulting in more rapid development, quicker-to-market deployment and greater IP reuse. The bottom line is the faster development, testing and deployment of advanced SDRs with the capability to support the next generation of cognitive applications,” said Andrew Foster, Spectra Product Manager, PrismTech.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
