mmWave Transceiver System

  • Ideal system for prototyping real-time two-way communications systems
  • Base configurations for bidirectional and unidirectional systems that scale from SISO to MIMO
  • Flexible multi-FPGA architecture maximizes performance for computationally intensive algorithms
  • 2 GHz real-time bandwidth throughout the entire system
  • Modular radio heads with support for 24.25-33.4, 37-43.5, and 71-76 GHz
  • Form factor that allows for lab work as well as outdoor field trials
The mmWave Transceiver System is a modular hardware solution for prototyping real-time communications systems for mmWave frequencies. With 2 GHz of bandwidth, the system can be used to evaluate the ultrawide bandwidth signals being proposed for next-generation wireless communications standards in real time. You can analyze these ultrawide bandwidth signals in real time using a multi-FPGA architecture for computationally intensive digital signal processing. With this processing capability, you can build a real-time two-way communications link with up to 2 GHz of bandwidth.

This system comprises a collection of PXI modules and mmWave radio heads, which sit outside the PXI chassis. You can combine the PXI modules in an assortment of unidirectional or bidirectional configurations to build the right system for a variety of research needs and scale from SISO to MIMO. The mmWave radio heads are also modular, so you can use the same baseband hardware and software to study multiple different frequency bands.

The software for the mmWave Transceiver System is built using LabVIEW FPGA, a part of NI’s graphical system design approach. This approach is used to combine an open programming environment with high-performance hardware and simplify the software development of custom designs. The mmWave Transceiver System, coupled with LabVIEW FPGA, delivers a software defined radio at mmWave frequencies that is suited for applications ranging from channel sounding to 5G physical layer prototyping.
