The UI, developed in JAVA, will be running on the SDR unit depicted in the blue box. The NordiaSoft Radio Manager application could be used or the client may develop its own UI interface using functionalities of the Radio Manager. The audio card of the desktop (microphone and speaker) is to be used for audio-in and audio-out while the screen can be used for data presentation.
Signal Processing Unit and RF Transceiver Unit:
For the Reference platform, the signal processing and RF transceiver functions will be provided within the same unit, on different cards. Connectivity between the cards will be done via a high-speed backplane.
Built using test instrument grade components, this platform provides extremely high performance signal processing and RF performance. The versatility and scalability of this platform will allow users to configure the SDR unit with various COTS processing cards.
A desktop computer is needed for the development environment, in addition to providing the application UI functionalities. The workstation would host the SCA Architect development tool, the programming development environment, the OS compiler and ORB libraries.
