Lockheed Martin has chosen CommAgility to supply integrated software and hardware for a yet-disclosed satellite communications project. CommAgility is supplying a customized version of its SmallCellPHY software, which is a complete LTE physical layer for small cells, compliant with 3GPP Release 10. The LTE software will run on CommAgility’s AMC-D24A4-RFx processing/RF module, and the company is also supplying its AMC-4C6678-SRIO module for the project.

The AMC-D24A4-RFx is a high-performance processing module based on Texas Instruments’ TCI6638 KeyStone 2 DSP/ARM System on Chip (SOC). The module also includes two Texas Instruments TMS320C6678 SOC DSPs, a Xilinx Kintex-7 Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), and up to four integrated wideband RF transceiver channels. The AMC-4C6678-SRIO is a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) card powered by TI SOC TMS320C6678 DSPs.

SmallCellPHY software is an LTE physical layer for small cells, currently compliant to 3GPP Release 10 and with a roadmap to Release 13 in 2018. It is tailored to TI’s SOCs to maximize performance, and optimized for low memory, processing power, and power consumption, according to the company.
