SystemVue ESL Design SoftwareThe W1916EP 3G Baseband Verification Library is an optional new Layer 1 simulation reference library for Keysight SystemVue. The blockset, reference designs, and testbenches in the W1916 assist the design and verification of multi-format radios, by providing configurable physical layer waveforms for a variety of existing commercial wireless standards.

Product Highlights

  • Full transmit and receive reference designs and blocksets for 2G/3G wireless standards, including GSM, EDGE, CDMA, CDMA2000, WCDMA, HSDPA, HSUPA, and Dual-Carrier HSPA+
  • Includes over 400 simulation blocks and 80 pre-built workspaces with physical layer tests
  • Also includes new testbenches for “Multi-Standard Radio” (MSR), as described in 3GPP Rel. 9 TS 37.141 and TS 37.104. (Note: W1916 does not provide the LTE signals for MSR tests. The W1910 or W1918 libraries are also recommended for MSR-compliance validation) 

Why should I buy the W1916 reference verification library?

  • Design Productivity: Provides simulation blocksets and pre-built testbenches for 2G/3G algorithm and hardware verification, saving system engineering time
  • Verify 4G Compatibility: Explore PHY interoperability and interference of older 2G/3G standards with 4G, including MSR validation and interband carrier aggregations. These are of current interest for Digital PreDistortion (DPD), basestations, femtocells, and handset PAs.
  • Versatile H/W Test: Interacts directly with wide variety of Keysight wideband arbitrary waveform generators, RF signal generators, and RF signal analyzer families. Also supported by 89600 VSA “multi-measurement” feature. Scriptable for parameterized wideband interference studies.
  • Custom applications: Useful for designing proprietary adaptations of commercial chipsets for military, software-defined radio (SDR), satcomm, backhaul, medical, automotive, and research applications.

The W1916 3G Baseband Verification Library can be added as an option to any SystemVue environment or bundle. It can also be combined with the W1910 LTE and W1918 LTE-Advanced libraries to provide more extensive coverage of the 3GPP communications standards. It is often used with the W1716 DPD module for 4G infrastructure design.
