Spectra CX 3.4 Launch Webcast


Published on

The webcast slides detail the latest upgrade to PrismTech's industry-leading Software Defined Radio (SDR) development tool, Spectra CX v3.4.

Spectra CX v3.4 adds significant new functionality that further boosts the productivity of SDR application and platform developers. In particular,

• The ability to generate Software Communications Architecture (SCA) compliant ANSI C code, which facilitates the development of 'C' language components for deployment on either general purpose processors (GPPs) or digital signal processors (DSPs),
• Increased coverage of Spectra CX's compliance-testing features - for both SCA 2.2.2 waveform applications and SCA 2.2.2 Operating Environments (OEs),
• The generation of compliance reports for SCA components,
• Support for 64-bit host operating systems.
