itf18ORCA project was present during the imec Technology Forum 2018 in May 23-24 2018 in Antwerp, Belgium

ORCA presented the demo “Flexible and low-latency radio”. Wireless communicaiton is a key enabling technology for the implementation of advanced manufacturing systems. However existing wireless solutions do not perform adequately regarding real-time and reliability needs, especially for industrial applications requiring closed-loop control. The SDR-TAISC prototyping platform from IDLab, an imec research group at Ghent University, tackles this problem by integrating software with hardware acceleration, hence combining the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. By doing so, the platform operates beyond standard performance and without making radio design more complex.
