Upcoming MATLAB and Simulink Webinars

Verify Wireless Signal Designs with RF Test Equipment


When designing wireless systems, at some point in your design cycle, you need to verify the characteristics of your signal using real hardware and RF test equipment.  This design verification task can be a challenge.  In this webinar, we will demonstrate how MATLAB and the Wireless Waveform Generator app can help you design and verify 5G and WLAN signals.  We’ll generate standards-compliant signals in MATLAB, send them out over the air using an RF signal analyzer, acquire the signals from an RF signal generator, and analyze the quality of the transmitted signals by calculating EVM (Error Vector Magnitude) and viewing constellation diagrams.

Through discussion and product demonstrations, you will see how you can use the wireless design and instrument control products to:

  • Generate a variety of WLAN and 5G signals
  • Introduce impairments to the signals
  • Transmit the signals over-the air using RF Signal generators from Keysight, R&S and other vendors
  • Acquire IQ data from RF signal analyzers
  • Calculate the EVM of an 802.11ax signal
  • Plot the constellation diagram of a 256-QAM signal

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
