The ORCA project hereby announces its second Open Call for Extensions which focuses on the development of missing functionalities to extend the ORCA software and hardware platforms. In particular, this second call targets four topics:

  •     EXT1 – Partial reprogramming of FPGA on SDR at runtime
  •     EXT2 – Polar Codes for FPGA
  •     EXT3 – Interfaces for 5G and LTE interworking
  •     EXT4 – Dynamic runtime composition of mmWave transceiver chains consisting of processing functions that are split between FPGA and CPU.

You can find more information about the ORCA testbeds here.
