Engineers are using MATLAB® and Simulink® to develop products that implement the new 5G New Radio (NR) specification.

Learn how you can accelerate 5G NR development tasks such as optimizing 5G physical layer algorithms and link-level performance, simulating RF and antenna designs, and system verification with hardware prototypes and over-the-air tests.

This practical guide covers:

  • Section 1: Technology and Design
    Get an introduction to the 5G physical layer and RF techniques you can use to optimize spectrum efficiency and data rates.
  • Section 2: New Architectures and Algorithms
    Learn about techniques such as hybrid beamforming, linearizing power amplifiers, new radio waveforms, and polar codes and LDPC channel coding.
  • Section 3: Accelerating Prototypes and Field Trials
    See the steps to convert MATLAB reference algorithms to automatically generate HDL code. Read case studies on how Huawei and Ericsson are using these methods.
  • Section 4: System Verification and Testing
    Learn how you can use MATLAB to perform over-the-air tests with software-defined radios and RF instruments, and to postprocess, analyze, and visualize large amounts of test data.
