LynuxWorks, CRC, and OIS to present E-Cast on Next-Generation Small Form Factor SDRs

HERNDON, VA – February 8, 2011
– LynuxWorks, Communications Research Centre (CRC), and Objective Interface Systems (OIS) are partnering in an E-cast presentation on next-generation Small Form Factor software defined radios (SDRs).

This event will describe a COTS solution that combines the open standards conformant and secure LynxOS-SE RTOS from Lynuxworks with the high-performance lightweight ORBexpress from OIS and the SCA/SDR framework from CRC. This engineering integration will enable SDR developers to create applications for extremely small form factors with highly constrained size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements while maintaining full performance and complete backwards compatibility for their existing applications.

E-cast titled, “Solutions for the Next Generation of Software Defined Radios”

LynuxWorks, a world leader in the embedded market providing open and reliable real-time operating systems and software tools; Communications Research Centre (CRC), the Canadian government’s primary laboratory for research and development in advanced wireless and phototonics telecommunications; Objective Interface Systems (OIS), provider of the most widely used communications middleware for software-defined radios (SDRs)

Date and time:
Thursday, February 10, 2011
2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EST
The webinar will last 45 minutes followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
