LTE Transmitter using Zynq-based Software-Defined Radio (SDR)

This example shows how to use the Xilinx® Zynq-based radio support package with MATLAB® and LTE System Toolbox™ to generate an LTE transmission. If you have a second SDR platform the transmitted signal can be captured and the broadcast channel decoded using the companion example LTE Receiver using Zynq-based Software-Defined Radio (SDR).

Example Summary

LTE System Toolbox can be used to generate standard-compliant baseband IQ downlink and uplink reference measurement channel (RMC) waveforms and downlink test model (E-TM) waveforms. These baseband waveforms can be modulated for RF transmission using SDR radio hardware such as Xilinx Zynq-based radio.

In this example eight frames of a baseband RMC waveform are generated using the LTE System Toolbox. A continuous RF LTE waveform is created by looping transmission of these eight frames with the Zynq radio hardware for a user-specified time period.

If you have a second SDR platform the transmitted waveform can be captured and the broadcast channel decoded using the companion example LTE Receiver using Zynq-based Software-Defined Radio (SDR).

SDR Support Packages

This example requires the Xilinx Zynq-Based Radio support package. This can be installed using the Add-On Explorer.

More information about other supported SDR platforms can be found here.
