5G: 5G Waveforms Library

W5G is the 5G modulation waveforms library, inclusive of test benches and phased-array features, that works seamlessly with Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) system-level design software. This 5G library gives VSS users access to current 5G candidate signals. Each candidate signal is then implemented as a fully parameterizable block with source subcircuits exposing adjustable parameters such as carrier frequency, sub-carrier spacing, number of sub-carriers, filtering, and sub-carrier mapping.

Library Waveforms

  • OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing)
  • OFDM Variations
    • Wide Subcarrier Spacing
    • Filtered OFDM
    • DFT-OFDM
  • GFDM (Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing)
  • FBMC (Filter Bank Multi-Carrier)

Additionally, the associated test benches enable users to readily perform adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR) and error vector magnitude (EVM) measurements.
