NordiaSoft Wins Two Prestigious Awards at WInnComm 2015

Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA

SAN DIEGO, April 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NordiaSoft, provider of the most popular Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Software Defined Radios (SDR) based on the Software Communications Architecture (SCA), is proud to announce that it won the Technology of the Year and the President's awards given by the Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) and presented at the recently held WInnComm 2015 Conference.

NordiaSoft's latest addition to its product portfolio, the SCA Architect plugin for R-Check SCA, was selected by the membership of the Wireless Innovation Forum, an international industry association dedicated to driving technology innovation in commercial, civil, and defense communications worldwide, as the Technology of the Year in the field of Software Defined and Cognitive Radio.

As the SCA defines a framework to improve interoperability and portability of the software code developed for embedded systems, notably in the communications market, it is paramount that the code produced be compliant with the specification. Teaming up with Reservoir Labs, the developer of R-Check SCA (static analysis tool for SCA compliance testing), NordiaSoft developed the plugin for its SCA Architect graphical modeling tool for SDR / SCA development. Developers can now verify compliancy of their code while writing their SCA artifacts during the development phase, thus significantly reducing their compliancy effort. With the SCA Architect plugin for R-Check SCA, NordiaSoft becomes the first and only vendor in the commercial market to offer SCA compliance testing integrated with its SCA development tools.

Also during the event, Steve Bernier, NordiaSoft Chief Technology Officer was awarded the Wireless Innovation Forum's President Award for his stewardship in making the upcoming 4.1 version of the SCA specification, backward compatible with the previous SCA 2.2.2 version. "Over the last decade, radio manufacturers and military organizations have made substantial investments in developing and deploying tens of thousands of radios based on the SCA technology. As the SCA is designed on the concept of code portability, it was paramount to ensure backwards compatibility in the new version of the SCA specification to protect those investment for future radio generations and thus guarantee the trust in the technology," said Steve Bernier, CTO of NordiaSoft.

"We thank the WInnForum, our partners and clients, for recognizing NordiaSoft as a market leader in the SCA field. These two awards reinforce our commitment to continue evolving the technology and providing the most advanced SCA software development environment. We are dedicated to support the industry for their radio development and make the SCA the technology of choice for heterogeneous embedded distributed systems," said Claude Bélisle, CEO of NordiaSoft.
