In this webinar, we will use MATLAB to discuss the iterative process of analysis, design and optimization involved in the development of major components of 4G LTE wireless systems. The demonstration example will start with a simple communications system and progressively add components to approach a bare bones prototype of a 4G LTE system.

Highlights of the presentation include:

  • Mathematical modeling of the LTE standard, specifically its physical layer (PHY) in MATLAB and examining four LTE enabling technologies: OFDM, MIMO, turbo coding and dynamic link adaptations
  • Using the Communications System Toolbox to progressively incorporate components such as Modulators, Channel models, Turbo Encoder/Decoder, MIMO and OFDM into your model
  • System-level throughput analysis with adaptive modulation based on channel characteristics
  • Accelerating the speed of your MATLAB-Simulink simulation at each step through parallel processing, code generation, GPU processing and using efficient algorithms
  • Generating C code from your model with MATLAB Coder
  • Fixed-point numerical representation of the system model components
  • Generating VHDL or Verilog code to implement the design using FPGAs

Please allow approximately 60 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session.
