Cobham AvComm and NordiaSoft announce SCA development and test system

March 16, 2016

Reston, VA. Cobham AvComm and NordiaSoft, a provider of software communications architecture (SCA) tools, have announced what they call a market first for the SCA community—a fully-integrated SCA platform that supports the entire SCA lifecycle, from simulation through development, emulation, and production and field test.

Combining Cobham’s modular AXIe hardware and NordiaSoft’s SCARI software suite gives SCA developers a turnkey development system for implementing SCA Version 2.2.2 designs today and Version 4.1 later this year. The AXIe chassis and modules provide unparalleled value with ultra-high performance while maintaining a low total cost of ownership. The COTS modular AXIe system allows various plug and play configurations of transceivers, CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, and FPGAs.

“This SCA Platform gives engineers and scientists a seamless, integrated hardware and software solution. Our AXIe hardware components with a complete set of JTNC SCA API’s perfectly dovetail with the NordiaSoft SCARI Software Suite – this truly is a software defined radio platform. Plus, our background in test and measurement means that our RF transceivers are instrument quality, including calibration, allowing for simulation, emulation and test in the same platform,” said Marv Rozner, VP of Strategic Development for Cobham AvComm.

Steve Bernier, NordiaSoft CTO added: “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. Now they can focus on the problem of making their radio, EW, radar, and other SCA software work versus spending time on developing homebrew tools and breadboards.”
