All-in-One Software Communications Architecture (SCA) Platform to Come Up Shortly

By CIOReview | Friday, March 18, 2016

RESTON, VA: NordiaSoft and Cobham have recently collaborated to come up with an integrated Software Communications Architecture (SCA) platform that supports the entire SCA lifecycle. NordiaSoft offers comprehensive solutions for SCA-based Software Defined Radio (SDR) development in domains such as telecommunications, aerospace, radar, electronic warfare and many more. On the other hand, Cobham through its unified solutions ensures that its clients can carry out their tests on-site, enabling them to increase operational efficiency reducing downtime of mission critical platforms.

“We have SCA users worldwide, and the Cobham AXIe system will allow waveform and application software developers to fully leverage component based model driven development and immediately see their designs work all the way to RF in and out,” says Steve Bernier, CTO, NordiaSoft. He went on to add that the developers can now focus on making the SCA software operational rather than spending time on developing homebrew tools and breadboards.

This partnership empowers developers with a turnkey development system by combining Cobham’s Modular AXIe hardware with NordiaSoft’s SCARI Software Suite. The AXIe chassis and modules provide unparalleled value with ultra-high performance, and permits access to various plug-and-play configurations of transceivers such as CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, and FPGAs.

NordiaSoft’s SCARI Software Suite composed of Scari Core Framework, SCA architect, Radio Manager and R-Check Adapter is a comprehensive Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Embedded systems. It helps in reducing development risk and time-to-market while creating top-quality SDR products. Leveraging both the companies’ offerings will enable developers to implement SCA Version 2.2.2 designs and Version 4.1 to be available later this year. The authorities disclosed that the platform will be available for pre-release orders from April 2016.
