Zeligsoft Supplies Development Tools to World Leading Software Radio Research Institution

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 13, 2005) -

Virginia Tech's Mobile and Portable Radio Research Group (MPRG) adopts Zeligsoft Component Enabler™

At Real-Time & Embedded Computing Conference, Zeligsoft™, a leading vendor of market-specific embedded software development tools, today announced that Virginia Polytechnic and State University, known as Virginia Tech, has chosen Zeligsoft Component Enabler™ (CE) to accelerate its research and development projects in Software Defined Radio (SDR).

Initiated in 1990, and one of the very first wireless research programs in the USA, the Mobile and Portable Radio Research Group (MPRG) at Virginia Tech is recognized worldwide as a center of excellence for education and research of radio technologies. Through education, research and industrial partnerships, the MPRG attracts millions in funding, and has spun-off successful commercial endeavors.

Virginia Tech's MPRG will use Zeligsoft CE in projects involving waveform prototyping and development, smart antennas, and the group's open source Software Communications Architecture (SCA) Core Framework implementation, known as OSSIE (Open Source SCA Implementation Embedded).

"It is exciting for us to be working with the world's foremost software radio research lab," said John Hogg, Chief Technology Officer, Zeligsoft. "Zeligsoft Component Enabler's modeling and design environment will contribute to the research taking place by promoting collaboration between professors, students, and their industry partners on a large scale."

"Both Zeligsoft and the MPRG have been involved with component-based software engineering for SDR since the beginning," said Dr. Jeff Reed, Deputy Director of the MPRG and Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Virginia Tech. "Zeligsoft has contributed to both the SCA standard and the discipline of software engineering. We selected Zeligsoft CE because it embodies the proper methodology for SDR development, and it will help us teach our students how to build better software radios. The SCA modeling, validation and code generation features provided by CE will also make our student's work much easier."

"We are delighted to have Virginia Tech as a customer," said Kamal Krishnapillai, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Zeligsoft. "The graduate students and faculty who chose our development tool lead the field in SDR design practice. We are very pleased to be providing value to the SDR community and enabling the software radio developers of the future."
