Open Systems Architecture for RF/M becoming a reality in the embedded world

Share

Abstract:

The pressure to deliver increasingly affordable platforms continues to be a critical driver behind the DoD's expanding mandate for Open Systems Architecture across platforms and technologies.  While OpenVPX addresses this challenge for digital signal processing (DSP), meeting these interoperability and affordability requirements when RF/Microwave and digital are fused into single systems demands an innovative approach. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the challenges found in typical RF/Microwave and digital Open Systems Architectures including connectivity, control, data path, and RF isolation. Additionally, it will explore OpenRFM, the industry's first RF/Microwave open architecture approach that leverages best available commercial-item technology as a means of meeting the DoD mandates while delivering sophisticated, interoperable sensor processing subsystems to dominate the electromagnetic spectrum.
