In today's competitive wireless research space, the ability to prototype ideas quickly on hardware using real signals is more important than ever. Attendees will gain hands-on experience with National Instruments' integrated hardware and software platform for rapid prototyping of real-time wireless systems using the NI LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite (LabVIEW Communications) and the NI USRP RIO FPGA-based software defined radio. The final result will be the attendee's ability to design, simulate and prototype a 5-MHz LTE -based real-time OFDM link on a high performance FPGA, and transmit data over the air using the link designed on the NI USRP RIO. This industrial design workshop will cover the most important aspects of the idea-to-prototype flow in a single tool, including floating-point simulation, floating-point to fixed-point conversion, HW/SW partitioning, performance complexity tradeoffs, and finally verification and testing on an FPGA-based software defined radio.
Note: No prior experience with FPGA’s or NI hardware or software tools is required.
** This Hands-on Workshop is only available to attendees of European Microwave Week **
Pre-Registration is now closed.
