5G Waveform Generation and Over-the-Air Testing with MATLAB and RF Instruments


In this webinar, we introduce 5G NR waveform generation capabilities of 5G Toolbox and over-the-air testing features of Instrument Control Toolbox. First, we show you how to easily perform 5G waveform generation using the new Wireless Waveform Generator app. Then, you will learn how perform live tests and measurements by connecting your waveforms to RF instruments from within the same app in MATLAB. Using this workflow, you can verify that your device-under-test (DUT) works properly. Also, you can ensure that the performance metrics in your labs match those expected by standard specification. 


  • Generate a 5G NR waveforms (use Wireless Waveform Generator app)
  • Apply channel modeling & add impairments to the signal
  • Transmit the signals over-the air using RF signal generators
  • Acquire IQ data from RF signal analyzers
  • Perform transmission signal spectral mask testing
  • Analyze received signal in MATLAB 

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
