5G Communications Library
The 5G modulation waveforms library, inclusive of coding/modulation libraries, test benches, and the phased-array antenna generation wizard, works seamlessly with Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) software to accelerate the development of 5G communications systems and related hardware.
The library provides access to 5G candidate signals implemented as parameterized blocks with source subcircuits that have adjustable parameters such as carrier frequency, subcarrier spacing, number of subcarriers, filtering, and subcarrier mapping.
5G New Radio (NR) waveforms and virtual test benches provide communications performance measurements with real-world signals.
Proprietary array modeling and design automation implements multiple-in-multiple-out (MIMO and/or beam-forming antenna-array technologies.
System, circuit, and electromagnetic (EM) co-simulation helps designers tackle challenging millimeter-wave (mmWave) component design and integration.
