PrismTech Announces GA Release of Spectra CX

16 September 2009

Next-generation modeling tool for Software-Defined Radio (SDR/SCA) developers

Spectra CXBoston, MA, USA – September 16, 2009 — PrismTech™ an acknowledged leader in Software-Defined Radio (SDR) infrastructure solutions, today announced the General Availability (GA) release of its new model-driven development tool for radio developers - Spectra™ CX.

Developed in partnership with fellow industry leader, Zeligsoft, Spectra CX is a third generation, fully-featured model-driven development tool that helps to simplify, accelerate and validate a Software Communications Architecture (SCA) development process.

Spectra CX validates SCA compliance at both the architectural and unit test level, and generates correct-by-construction SCA compliant artifacts, such as: XML descriptor files, compliance test reports, and validation documentation. Spectra CX enables SCA and non-SCA software aspects to be developed together, integrated early, and thoroughly tested. Spectra CX also helps to reduce development risk due to its consistent model-based approach. Together these benefits result in faster time-to-market, lower costs, better software quality, and superior compliance for all SCA waveform and platform code developed with Spectra CX.

Spectra CX is built on IBM's (UML 2.0-based) Rational Software Modeler and the Eclipse tools framework. Thus Spectra CX is fully industry-standards compliant and leverages the very latest in software tools technology.

"PrismTech is very pleased to announce the GA release of this next-generation SDR development tool," said Steve Jennis, SVP Corporate Development, PrismTech. "Spectra CX delivers productivity benefits through the complete radio development life-cycle: from system modeling, to code generation and validation, to testing, deployment, and monitoring. Spectra CX does this through its unique combination of model-based software engineering features and SDR domain specialization. By building on previous generations of PrismTech and Zeligsoft tooling technology Spectra CX is truly a unique and best-in-class tool for software radio developers."

Existing Spectra and Zeligsoft CE and CX customers will benefit from a suite of migration tools and services released in conjunction with Spectra CX to facilitate their phased upgrade to Spectra CX.
