Featured Demonstrations


 As one of the leader of SCA COTS solution provider Adlink will demo the SCA4 supporting tool, showing its benefits in terms of model validation and correct by generation XML and code. We will also show that we have the complete stack supporting SCA4 development, for example:

- Demonstrate model based waveform development using SpectraCX, including:

o   Waveform authoring with graphical model tool

o   validation of the model against the SCA4 profile

o   generation of SCA4 complaint XML and component code

 - Demo of an SCA4 waveform running on a SCA4 compliant CF


The Software Communications Architecture allows for the development of embedded software applications that are portable across platforms with different operating systems and/or processors.

At the SDR Tactical Communications Workshop and WInnForum Technical Exchange Meetings (22-24 May, 2018, Madrid, Spain) NordiaSoft will showcase its Embedded Components (eCo) Suite for SCAv4.1 development that makes source code portability easy. The eCo Suite provides a complete solution for the development of SCAv4.1 systems, including a set of tools to create SCA models, automatically generate all associated source code, create HMI software, and to monitor and debug SCA systems. The suite also includes a SCAv4.1 Core Framework that is backwards compatible to SCAv2.2.2 and a powerful migration engine that transforms SCAv2.2.2 artifacts into SCAv4.1 ones. The NordiaSoft eCo Suite also provides a list of SCA Devices implementing the Joint Tactical Networking Center (JTNC) and the Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnF) APIs. 

During the demonstration, NordiaSoft will highlight the simplicity of the SCA portability paradigm: the same FM waveform application will be executed on laptop computer, a Samsung smartphone and a video projector.
