AccelerComm has signed an agreement with the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under which it will provide access to its physical layer product portfolio that reduces error rates and maximises spectral efficiency.

The deal covers satellite, cellular and other communications networks and comes under the DARPA Toolbox initiative.

AccelerComm’s physical layer product portfolio includes complete channel coding IP solutions that deliver reduced latency, high-reliability, and low power consumption for the most critical components of the 5G physical layer. The company’s IP packages can be integrated and flexibly delivered for use in custom silicon (ASIC), programmable hardware (FPGA) or as software solutions, covering all use cases within current standards.

DARPA Toolbox is an Agency-wide effort to provide open licensing opportunities with commercial technology vendors to the researchers behind DARPA programs. DARPA Toolbox provides low-cost, scalable access to state-of-the-art tools and intellectual property (IP) under predictable legal terms and streamlined acquisition procedures. The goal being to reduce performer reliance on low-quality, low-cost tools and IP that increase execution risks and complicate post-DARPA transitions.

Through this initiative, DARPA performers are granted access to select vendor tools and technologies throughout the life of their contractual relationship with the Agency. The Toolbox suppliers bring to the table proven technologies commonly used in state-of-the art commercial microelectronics or system design methodologies.

“The toolbox initiative makes proven cutting edge technologies available to our researchers,” said Serge Leef, Program Manager, leading DARPA Toolbox. “Adding AccelerComm’s IP to the toolbox initiative strengthens the portfolio of communications IP available to our researchers.”

“High-performance, high-reliability, spectrally-efficient communications systems are critical in today’s world in both civilian and defence applications,” said Rob Barnes, Chief Commercial Officer at AccelerComm. “We are delighted to have been selected for the DARPA Toolbox initiative to bring our deployment proven IP from the worlds of 5G and Satellite to help researchers develop advanced and innovative projects.”
