A software-defined radio (SDR) brings many advantages to users. For one, it provides flexibility in design, coupled with increased dependability. It is also easy to upgrade and can be reused with other hardware platforms.
It can also be reconfigured with other customer-specific applications.
Helping developers to conduct more tests reliably, PrismTech has added the company’s Product Line Management (PLM) option to its Spectra Quick-Start SDR Development and Test System.
The best part is that it comes at no extra cost.
The Spectra Quick-Start bundle brings together the Spectra DTP4700 platform and Spectra CX development tool, which allows users to get SDR laboratory system at a fairly low price.
According to the company, Spectra products are specifically designed for SDRs and Software Communications Architecture (SCA). It allows developers to develop SDR waveform quickly without the need for radio platform.
Developers can also look to bring down the testing time and do it at a reduced cost.
PrismTech has stated that Spectra Quick-Start can be used by state-of-the-art wireless communications laboratories in both government and defense sectors. It can also be used by application and platform developers.
“Spectra Quick-Start is an affordable COTS system with unrivalled SDR development and test capability,” said Toby McClean, Spectra CX Product Manager. “The addition of PLM to the package provides yet another compelling reason for SDR developers to select Quick-Start as their application-neutral and target-neutral SDR lab environment.”
In November 2012, the company introduced Probes Toolbox, which helps its Spectra DTP4700 Software-Defined Radio development and test platform. The Probes Toolbox helps in improving waveform elements as it is equipped with real-time debugging tools.
It also assists users in integrating waveform components and validating them independently.
