Validate the RF aspect of your unlicensed or licensed 5G mmWave system. Plug and Play with a minimum of configuration activities – easily controlled through standardized interfaces.

Cost-effective

Leverage our integration test platform to reduce costs and time to market.

Adaptable

Seamless operation together with any Zero-IF based broadband solution.

Simple

Quickly evaluate beam steering capabilities and other RF parameters.

About our Evaluation Kits

5G NR mmWave System Test Platform

Transmitter side: Simulate different configurations of 5G NR waveforms and upload to RFSoC. Waveform/IQ samples transmitted through data converters to RFIC.

Receiver side: Data received by RFIC is sampled in RFSoC. Basic RFIC control performed in real-time in FPGA logic (gain control and beamforming), before data is passed to modem simulation framework for decoding and analysis.
