The DIFI Consortium has announced a GNU Radio Conference 2022 (GRCon22) talk titled “DIFI: The Universal Language for Streaming Digitized RF” focusing on DIFI’s key role in enabling interoperability between SDRs and real-time signal processing hardware and software through the IEEE-ISTO Std 4900-2021: Digital IF Interoperability standard. The GNU Radio Conference (GRCon) has established itself as one of the premier annual industry events for Software Radio. This week-long conference includes high-quality technical content and valuable networking opportunities.
In addition, the DIFI Consortium’s Certification Working Group has released Open-Source Software tooling and a tutorial on the standard. The software collection allows developers and integrators to interact with the DIFI standard by using Python, Wireshark and a GNU Radio Out of Tree (OOT) Module (gr-difi). Developers interested in Digital IF and Open-Source Software are encouraged to learn more and contribute to the development effort.
“We want to thank the members of the Certification Working Group for their hard work over the last 6 months to release open-source software and documentation that allow developers and integrators to interact with DIFI-enabled devices. This is an important milestone for the organization as we push towards a certification compliance process and further proliferate adoption of DIFI for interoperability and digital transformation in space, satellite, and related industries,” said Christian Rodriguez, Chair of DIFI’s Certification Working Group and Senior Technical Program Manager at Microsoft’s Azure Space & Spectrum.
DIFI’s current membership is comprised of over 50 companies and government organizations from across space industry sectors. The Consortium invites all interested companies and organizations to join and contribute to efforts that encourage interoperability and digital transformation in the space industry.
