MathWorks has introduced its new LTE System Toolbox, which provides standard-compliant simulation, verification, and analysis of LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless communication systems and devices. The toolbox is an extension to MATLAB and Communications System Toolbox, and according to the company is intended for use by engineers who need to design or verify wireless systems conforming to the LTE standard.
LTE System Toolbox provides standard-compliant LTE and LTE-Advanced golden reference models and test waveforms that the company says will help engineers reduce risk, save time, and improve resource utilization.
"As the market for LTE technology grows, engineers need to verify that their product designs conform with, or can co-exist with, the LTE and LTE-Advanced standard," said Ken Karnofsky, senior strategist for signal processing applications, MathWorks. "In addition, because LTE is extremely complex and continues to evolve, very few companies have the resources or expertise to do this in-house. LTE System Toolbox will help teams to achieve standard compliance without a large engineering investment."
