Coherent Logix has a long history in supporting military tactical radios from its involvement in the JTRS program in the US. We understand the long life cycles and supply issues related to military systems. Currently, most tactical radios use a hybrid DSP/FPGA-based architecture which result in lengthy and expensive development times due to the need for hardware/software partitioning, resulting in designing and debugging across two different development methodologies. HyperX processors have been proven to result in a 5-10X productivity advantage due to a single C-based development environment that can support any waveform. All this while significantly reducing SWAP (Size, Weight And Power), resulting in much longer battery life. Naturally, all this processing needs to be done with the highest levels of security. Fortunately, the 3100 has been designed to meet the needs for Type 1/Suite A security including 256-bit AES, PUF (Physically Unclonable Functions), secure boot, anti-tamper features, battery-backed RAM and even programmable security barriers. Security barriers allow you to create sections of the devices which are completely separated from other portions of the device. In this way, it is possible to create red/black separation within the device and reduce SWAP significantly.
Public safety radios also are SWAP sensitive and ideally need to support multiple waveforms (i.e., P25/TETRA, LTE). While LTE will form the data backbone of public safety networks, additional features that are currently not available in commercial chipsets (nor likely to be made available) need to be supported, such as broadcast mode, peer-to-peer networking and MANET (Mobile Adhoc Networking). The flexibility and low power of HyperX processors provide an ideal modem platform, while the C-based development environment makes it easy to add and test these new features and requirements to a standard LTE PHY.
