Research Platforms for RF and Communication Presentation

- by Ahmed Bilal, NI Pakistan

Prototyping and deploying a new concept of modern communication system on a hardware platform demands extreme modularity and parameter accessibility in hardware to customize its characteristics via algorithm. This presentation shows how an open FPGA based RF hardware approach can be used to prototype complex systems and help overcome modern communication design challenges like :

Real time processing, Synchronization of RF substations, Parallelism requirements of algorithm, RF parameter Customizability, High throughput and latency challenges , Massive MIMO data handling

Demonstration of MIMO platforms, Radar like applications
