Integrated Development System for Software Defined Radio Application Development


[wpdm_package id=’4718′]

The SDR-4001 Integrated Development System is a solution designed to help you begin application development immediately, for systems to be deployed using SDR-4000 technology. Configured in a compact desktop air-cooled chassis, the SDR-4001 IDS supports up to two 3U CompactPCI SDR-4000 series wireless modems. Each wireless modem provides two IF input channels, two IF output channels and a cPCI Software Defined Radio (SDR) processing engine that employs a combination of Xilinx® Virtex-4™ FPGA, TMS320C6416T DSP and MPC8541E General Purpose Processor (GPP). A rear-mounted transition module provides Gigabit Ethernet, high-speed serial, RS232 and JTAG connectivity to the SDR processing engine.

The SDR-4001 includes:

  • One complete board set (PRO-4600 and XMC-3321)
  • A five-slot air-cooled desk-top cPCI chassis with power supply
  • Transition module (TM2-4900) providing Gigabit Ethernet, JTAG and RS232 interface
  • quicComm software
  • ISE Foundation FPGA Tools (optional)
  • Code Composer Studio (optional)
  • Operating System and Integrated Development Environment (IDE) (optional)
  • Windows XP development PC with target RTOS and software tools installed and tested (optional)
  • Cables and documentation
Features and Benefits


  • Includes one black-side wireless modem consisting of an XMC-3321 dual transceiver module mounted on a PRO-4600 SDR processing engine
  • Includes one rear panel transition module (TM2-4900) providing Gigabit Ethernet, high-speed serial, RS232 and JTAG interfaces
  • A five-slot air-cooled desktop 3U CompactPCI® chassis with power supply that allows configurations of up to two black-side wireless modems and optional SBC
  • Reusable source code examples preloaded onto the IDS that illustrate relevant data flows between processors and cards from IF to Ethernet
  • IF sampling rates up to 105 MSPS supporting industry standard 10.7, 21.4 and 70 MHz IF frequencies at bandwidths up to 36 MHz
  • Separate data path and control bus ideal for wireless modem applications requiring low latency deterministic operation
  • Solano® communications technology operates over XMC interface for high-speed, low latency deterministic data path to processing engines. Parallel RapidIO (VITA 42.1) option available as an alternative to Solano
  • Software Communications Architecture (SCA) option with Core Framework, Tools and ORB
  • Gigabit Ethernet hub and cables
  • Green Hills® INTEGRITY® Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) with MULTI® or Wind River® VxWorks® RTOS with Tornado®


  • Reduce time-to-deployment for SDR-4000 based architectures using a fully configured development system ready for waveform porting and application development
  • Minimize program risk. Develop applications and port waveforms using a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) IDS. In parallel with your development, modify your SDR-4000 hardware to meet specific size, weight, power, cost and ruggedization requirements of fielded applications.
  • Substantially reduce waveform development and porting costs by using preloaded data flow examples with source code relevant to your application
  • Ensure code portability from lab to field with the quicComm™ API, a hardware abstraction layer that is common across all Spectrum flexComm™ products
