Accelerating 5G Product Development by Using a COTS-Based SDR System for the Development Platformby Bob Muro, Application Specialist, Pentek
Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Software Defined Radio (SDR) products have been traditionally used for military radar and communication applications because of their high performance and design flexibility. The latest SDR products offer solutions with integrated I/O, ARM processors, and large FPGAs that include intellectual property (IP) for accessing, routing, and processing digital data. Combining these attributes with superior signal integrity, phase-coherent sampling, and multi-channel transceivers, a COTS SDR system is an ideal choice for your 5G development platform.
This article is designed to familiarize a new user about Software Defined Radio in a multi-purpose COTS platform that can reduce the time-to-market of your 5G products.

Rodger Hosking Joins the VITA Board of Directors
VITA, the trade association for standard computing architectures serving critical and intelligent embedded computing systems markets, announced that Rodger Hosking, vice-president and cofounder of Pentek, Inc., was elected to the VITA Board of Directors. With this election, the board will consist of four members.
"We are very pleased to announce that Rodger has joined the Board of Directors, where his expertise will be a key asset," said Jerry Gipper, VITA's Executive Officer. "Rodger has a solid understanding of the technology and business strategies that drive the critical embedded computing industry. He brings a unique perspective from a smaller company to the board and we look forward to benefitting from his extensive expertise in the industry and management as we continue to execute against our objectives and take action to create value for our members."
Mr. Hosking is responsible for new product definition, technology development, and strategic alliances at Pentek. With over 30 years in the electronics industry, he has authored hundreds of articles about software radio and digital signal processing. Prior to his current position, he served as engineering manager at Wavetek/Rockland, and holds patents in frequency synthesis and spectrum analysis techniques. He holds a BS degree in Physics from Allegheny College in Pennsylvania and BSEE and MSEE degrees from Columbia University in New York.
Founded in 1984, VITA is an incorporated, non-profit organization of suppliers and users who share a common market interest in critical embedded systems. VITA champions open system architectures. Its activities are international in scope, technical, promotional, and usercentric. VITA aims to increase total market size for its members, expand market exposure for suppliers, and deliver timely technical information.
VITA has American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) accreditation to develop standards (VME, VXS, VPX, OpenVPX, VPX REDI, XMC, FMC, FMC+, VNX, Reliability Community, etc.) for embedded systems used in a myriad of critical applications and harsh environments.
