T2M Cellular SDR PHY for 4G/5G and large MIMO system

SDR PHY for 4G/5G and large MIMO system

Description and Features

This SDR is a development platform for realization networks like 4G/5G and other radio applications involving more than 4 or 8 antenna ports. The SDR platforms have the mix of practical deployment scenarios and high-performance computing platforms to scale the simulations to RF. The Jupiter HW uses TCI6638K2K System on Chip (SoC) from Texas Instrument. The SoC brings in enormous computing power to develop PHY and Higher Layer Software.

The platform can be used for building application with 4x4 MIMO and channel BW exceeding 60 MHz.

The platform’s capabilities are demonstrated using LTE eNB and UE application. The platform is supplied with example application to transmit and receive IQ sample vectors.
