General Dynamics Broadband, Inc. Key Developments

General Dynamics Broadband, Inc. Completes PSCR Interoperability Tests for Public Safety Communications Equipment

General Dynamics Broadband, Inc. announced that the company's eNodeB and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) products have successfully completed phase one and phase three of the long-term evolution (LTE) network tests at the Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) program at the Commerce Department's Boulder Laboratories in Colorado. The successful testing is a significant milestone in demonstrating that GD Broadband equipment is capable of supporting the nation's FirstNet initiative. FirstNet will provide secure broadband communications and interoperability among more than 60,000 federal, state, local and tribal agencies and across jurisdictional lines. The ADCOM911 system is one of seven Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) locations that the FirstNet board of directors is considering for continued operation. GD Broadband's products are also connecting police, fire and other emergency first responders to the New York City Wireless Information Network (NYCWiN).

General Dynamics Broadband, Inc. Announces Availability of New Software Development Kit

General Dynamics Broadband, Inc. announced immediate availability of a new Software Development Kit (SDK) for the company's OKL4 Microvisor, enabling automotive manufacturers and other OEMs to target In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and other applications with the four-core Freescale i.MX 6 Quad system on chip. Automotive OEMs face an array of technical and financial challenges in bringing vehicles to market. In particular, they need to offer unique experiences for both drivers and passengers while ensuring safe and reliable vehicle performance, delivered on time and within budget. Building next-generation IVI systems with OKL4 and the Freescale i.MX 6 Quad helps manufacturers meet the stringent requirements of the automotive marketplace while reducing manufacturing costs by consolidating multiple dedicated processors in legacy designs. Using embedded virtualization also gives automotive OEMs the ability to offer a more open and engaging user experience (UX) by supporting the latest consumer applications and multimedia technologies, without compromising the safety or reliability of core vehicle "head unit" functions like rear-view camera and navigation systems. The OKL4 Microvisor SDK encompasses a range of capabilities relevant to automotive OEMs, including: Integration of diverse separate software environments on a single processor, each in a distinct secure environment (cell); Simultaneous hosting of multiple popular embedded operating systems, including Linux, Android, QNX and AUTOSAR, each in its own protected cell; Fine-grained and rigorous access control across cells, with OKL4 Microvisor leveraging processor hardware to enforce security policy, with secure sharing of display, audio, storage, networking and other peripherals; High performance, with fast booting and rebooting of individual cells, and deterministic responsiveness for real-time applications, even under heavy system load; Efficient utilization of multi-core CPUs via dynamic SMP balancing.

General Dynamics Broadband, Inc. Announces Xilinx ZynqTM-7000 Al Programmable SoC

General Dynamics Broadband, Inc. announced plans to support the Xilinx ZynqTM-7000 Al Programmable SoC family of devices with its OKL4 Microvisor software development kit (SDK). The OKL4 Microvisor is embedded virtualization platform for mobile security and automotive applications. The OKL4 SDK for Zynq-7000 AP SoCs will provide defense-grade security for mission-critical software and sensitive data against destructive program code and other malware. The ability to support the Xilinx Zynq-7000 family builds upon the successful use of the OKL4 Microvisor in the aerospace, defense and automotive markets. The OKL4 Microvisor SDK and the Zynq-7000 Al Programmable SoC are ideal for applications requiring advanced system control together with sophisticated signal processing. Virtualization al ows system developers to match several custom peripherals or accelerators within the programmable logic, to the best operating system. The result is a solution that of ers high performance, lower power consumption and reduced footprint. The combination of hardware-enforced bare-metal (Type I) virtualization supported by the OKL4 Microvisor and multi-core ARM Cortex-A9 processors, programmable logic, and other features enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to take advantage of the flexible programming model of the Zynq-7000 AP SoC. Using the integrated programmable logic, developers can create "virtual" peripherals, perform high-frequency signal processing (e.g., for high-quality audio) and even implement logic for accelerating processing of critical tasks, to address new applications while lowering systems costs.
