With data rates 10 times faster than those supported by LTE technology, 5G New Radio (NR) technology will enable faster, lower-latency communications in next-generation mobile broadband networks and applications. To ensure interoperability between 5G NR products, OEMs racing to bring products to market must ensure that their implementations—including licensed IP—comply with the 3GPP specification.
As a leading provider of 5G NR physical layer (PHY) reference solutions and IP, Lekha Wireless Solutions uses MATLAB® and 5G Toolbox™ to design, analyze, and perform early testing of complete 3GPP 5G NR gNB signal chains.
“We can use RF test and measurement equipment to assess the final implementation of our 5G NR PHY, but well before that, we validate our designs with MATLAB and 5G Toolbox,” says Gurucharan Acharya, senior manager at Lekha. “Early in development, MATLAB enables us to verify each module both independently and as an end-to-end uplink or downlink chain.”
