All-in-one software helps design and evaluate 5G waveforms
Providing an integrated system calibration with 5G signal creation and signal analysis, the Signal Optimizer software simplifies calibration and critical design tasks, claims Keysight Technologies.
It is believed to be the industry’ first all-in-one software for calibration, signal creation and signal analysis of 5G candidate waveforms. By simplifying calibration and the critical design tasks related to 5G signal creation and analysis, the software enables R&D engineers to focus more time on being first-to-market with their own designs, says the company.
Calibration is essential to making accurate measurements of 5G signals; however, calibrating wideband channels at RF, microwave and millimeter wave frequencies is challenging. The software overcomes this by making fully-guided system calibrations easier and also features task-based instructions that simplify complex system optimization and measurements, says the company. It believes it will support engineers to be able to more confidently validate their 5G designs.
The software can generate and analyse 5G candidate technologies, such as FBMC and F-OFDM. Enhanced LTE for 5G is also being developed along with new multiple access on existing LTE signals. Future additions will be licensed and added to the software on an as-needed basis
