Software and IP
CommAgility (Wireless Telecom Group)
CommAgility’s PHYRefChain-5G software supports the development of 5G base station technology. Designed for satcom, wireless test, military communications, and private network applications, it enables fast development and deployment of specialized 5G solutions for customized designs. The software is 3GPP-compliant, which reduces the complexity, risk, and cost of 5G product development.
PathWave Design <https://www.keysight.com/us/en/products/software/pathwave-design-software.html> 2021 is an open, scalable 5G, and mmWave software solution that lets design and validation engineers accelerate delivery of chip, board, and system products by integrating device, circuit, and system design. The tool addresses high frequency and complexity with new capabilities across design phases, which includes simulation to validation, test, and manufacturing.
The 5G Toolbox provides standard-compliant functions and reference examples for the modeling, simulation, and verification of 5G NR communications systems. It supports link-level simulation, golden reference verification, conformance testing, and test waveform generation. New R2020a features include generating NR-TM (test models), uplink and downlink FRC waveforms using the Wireless Waveform Generation App <https://www.mathworks.com/help/5g/examples/5g-nr-tm-waveform-generation.html>.
The Antenna Toolbox adds functions and apps for designing, analyzing, and visualizing antenna elements and arrays. You can design standalone antennas and build arrays of antennas using either predefined elements with parameterized geometry or arbitrary planar elements. New R2020a features include custom antenna patterns import capability, interactive Antenna Array Designer App, and antenna optimization workflows.
The Phased Array System Toolbox provides algorithms and apps that let you design, simulate, and analyze sensor array systems in radar, wireless communication, EW, sonar, and medical imaging applications. New R2020a features include ray tracing propagation model using images with materials reflection loss, and prediction of signal attenuation with Global Crane Rain Attenuation and International Telecommunications Union (ITU) models.
