ABSTRACT
The article reports the partnership of Xilinx and ISR Technologies in introducing an JTRS SDR kit designed to accelerate the implementation of software-defined radio (SDR) modems for the U.S. Department of Defense Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) program and others as well. The two companies collaborated with the Communications Research Centre (CRC). The kit includes the SCA Core Framework version 2.2 of CRC. It is the first to support partial reconfiguration capabilities of the Virtex-4 FPGAs and SCA-enabled system-on-chip (SoC) capabilities.
