Keysight Technologies Inc. has rolled out beamforming and channel modeling capabilities in the Keysight EEsof EDA W1906EP 5G Baseband Verification Library. According to the company, the advanced software library significantly increases productivity for system architects and baseband physical layer (PHY) designers by providing trusted algorithmic-reference, signal processing IP for 5G technology research.

Keysight EDA's 5G Baseband Verification Library supports several multi-antenna system architectures including digital, RF and hybrid beamforming, as well as advanced high-order MIMO signal processing. Consisting of signal processing building blocks, subsystems, reference multi-antenna system modeling examples, and infrastructure components, the library allows system architects to execute realistic technical research and easily migrate from one 5G communication system design concept to another.

The library is essential to enabling an integrated, cross-domain, model-based approach to simulation. A modified 3GPP channel model and an integrated early mm-wave custom channel model, for example, help designers evaluate system performance in realistic channel environments and make realistic proposals for the 5G standards.

Keysight EDA's 5G Baseband Verification Library supports multi-antenna system architectures such as digital, RF and hybrid beamforming, as well as advanced high-order MIMO signal processing.

Keysight's updated 5G Baseband Verification Library is used with the Keysight EDA SystemVue electronic system level simulation platform for 5G PHY standard development. SystemVue's integrated simulation environment, the W1465 SystemVue System Architect, is used to develop innovative designs for research and development. The integrated simulation environment allows users to investigate, implement and verify their communications PHY signal processing designs with dynamic link-level scenarios.

Adding the latest 5G Baseband Verification Library to the mix provides: multi-antenna system architectures including baseband, RF and hybrid beamforming structures; modified 3GPP 3D channel model, supporting mm-wave channel characteristics; advanced baseband IP references for Tx/Rx in several 5G candidate waveform technologies such as UF-OFDM, F-OFDM and FBMC; multi-channel RF behavioural model with parallel processing; and 3D visualisation to identify and address problem areas that improve system performance at an early stage of design.
