PrismTech Delivers New Productivity Boost for Software Defined Radio (SDR) Developers with GA Release of Spectra CX v3.4 Tool
February 14, 2012 -- PrismTech Corp. today announced the general availability (GA) of version 3.4 of Spectra CX, the latest upgrade to its software defined radio (SDR) and software communications architecture (SCA) development tool. Spectra CX v3.4 adds significant new functionality and features that further boosts the productivity of SDR and SCA application and platform developers.
Spectra CX is a key part of PrismTech's Spectra suite of fully integrated commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) tools, middleware, core frameworks, and development platforms for SCA developers. Spectra CX is a model-driven architecture and development (MDA/ MDD) tool that supports the complete SCA development lifecycle; allowing the developer to start developing application and/or platform code immediately with highly-productive requirements, modeling, code generation, code validation and deployment assistance features. This results in a faster time-to-market, lower costs, better software quality, increased portability, and superior compliance for all SCA waveform and platform code developed with Spectra CX.
Spectra CX v3.4 introduces a new C code generator that generates SCA compliant ANSI C code for SCA components. The C code generator introduces the ability to develop SCA compliant components for digital signal processors (DSP) by leveraging the Spectra ORB C Edition.
Spectra CX v3.4 also provides the following specific improvements for SCA developers:
Spectra CX v3.4 also comes with a new licensing model which increases usage flexibility and thus value and productivity for project teams. Current users of Spectra CX with a valid support contract will automatically receive Spectra CX v3.4 updates (under their current license terms).
