SCA 4.0 is a major revision of the Software Communications Architecture standard. SCA 4.0 is more scalable, lightweight, and flexible than SCA 2.2.2. and is compatible with radio sizes ranging from small, single channel radios to prime-power, multi-channel sets. Radio Memory and processing power consumption can be reduced significantly and architectural enhancements enable much faster boot-up times and reconfiguration of the radio. It incorporates advances in portability for Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) processors and new design patterns for its Application Program Interfaces (APIs).
The SCA 4.0 includes transfer mechanisms to provide standardized client/server operations. Client/server communications may be co-located or distributed across different processors. The transfer mechanism structure may be comprised of object request semantics, transfer and message syntax, and transports.
The SCA 4.0 Appendix E identifies the approved set of platform specific transport and technology mappings, transformations, and model representations used to achieve conformance with the SCA PIM as defined in the main specification.
This presentation will cover:
* What are the goals of SCA 4.0?
* What is SCA 4.0 Appendix E?
* What does the current SCA 4.0 Appendix E say about compliant middleware?
* What CORBA profiles are SCA 4.0 compliant today?
* How and when will PrismTech’s Spectra ORBs middleware support those new profiles?
* What enhancements to the standard will Spectra middleware support?
