Microsoft Research uses Lyrtech SFF SDR development platform for experimental
'white space' device

QUEBEC CITY, Aug. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Lyrtech Inc. (Lyrtech) (TSX-V: LTK), a worldwide leader in digital signal processing technologies and a Texas Instruments Elite Design House, is proud to announce that researchers at Microsoft have been successful in developing an experimental 'white space' device using Lyrtech's SFF SDR development platform. The details of this project are described in the scientific paper titled Rethinking Indoor Wireless Mesh Design: Low Power, Low Frequency, Full-duplex available from

'White space' development aims to implement FCC-compliant protocols and devices for unlicensed use in the recently liberated upper-TV-channel bands (512-698 MHz, channels 21-51).

The SFF SDR development platform is the world's leading embedded SDR development platform. Its RF tunability and signal processing capabilities have made it the platform of choice for Microsoft Research.
