Wireless Standards

Design, analyze, and test 5G, Wi-Fi, LTE, satellite communications, and Bluetooth standards-based systems

MATLAB products for wireless standards help ensure that your designs comply with wireless industry standards. You can reduce development time with test waveforms and open, customizable receiver algorithms. MATLAB enables you to meet performance requirements with end-to-end link-level and system-level modeling and simulations.

  • Generate waveforms for simulations or over-the-air testing using command-line functions or the Wireless Waveform Generator app
  • Implement performance measurements such as BER, PER, BLER, throughput, capacity, ACLR, EVM
  • Create and optimize your IP for 6G using open MATLAB functions
  • Create golden reference models to verify conformance for downstream implementations on DSP processors or FPGAs

Cellular Communications (5G, LTE)

Model 5G and LTE (4G) wireless communications systems. Generate uplink and downlink standards-based waveforms. Characterize transmitter and receiver performance in presence of RF impairments and interference. Verify meeting performance metrics by performing end-to-end link-level and system-level simulations.
