Key Features & Specifications

  • Accelerate Physical Layer (PHY) design process with a superior modeling environment
  • Save time with a trusted, independent IP reference from Keysight
  • Validate BB & RF integration early, reducing project risk
  • Reduce functional verification and NRE in R&D, with a streamlined process
  • Fill strategic gaps using simulation, such as missing hardware and MIMO effects for early throughput testing
  • Interoperate with test equipment, while the standard itself is still evolving
  • Re-use the same Keysight IP and test assets throughout process


SystemVue ESL SoftwareThe W1906BEL 5G Baseband Exploration Library provides ready-to-use reference signal processing IPs for 5G technology research. This product enables you to develop an unmatched increase in productivity for new baseband physical layer designs. System Architects, Algorithm Developers and Baseband Hardware Designers will benefit from the integrated simulation environments that enable them to investigate, implement and verify their Communications Physical Layer signal processing designs combined with dynamic link-level scenario.

Reference models support various 5G candidate waveforms for both orthogonal and non-orthogonal type of multi-carrier communications systems including advanced MIMO and beamforming signal processing techniques. The reference receiver can be easily re-designed to achieve best performance for comparison against theoretic maximum performance.


W1906BEL offers reference modeling source code IPs in C++ format

Figure 1. The W1906BEL 5G Baseband Exploration Library offers reference modeling source code IPs in C++ format.

The W1906BEL 5G Baseband Exploration Library consist of source code, models, sub-systems, simulation examples and infrastructure components for the high quality, rapid development and verification of advanced digital modem, utilizing SystemVue communications architect platforms. The source code gives you an algorithmic confidence and independent self-documenting reference library that enables you to quickly replace and modify blocks and subsystems to the specific implementation for end product.

The W1906BEL is a C++ source code companion to the W1906EP 5G baseband verification library, which is a regular compiled version of the same models. The W1906BEL is typically updated twice a year.

  • Advanced digital signal processing blocks for 5G candidate waveform technologies, such as FBMC, F-OFDM, and UF-OFDM as well LDPC coding
  • End-to-end physical layer transmit and receive simulation models for system level performance evaluation and BER/FER testing. Includes Synchronization, Channel estimation, and MIMO receiver functions
  • Signaling schemes for MIMO channels including spatial multiplexing, space-time coding and multiple detection methods
  • Adaptive digital, hybrid, and RF beamforming modeling examples
  • Millimeter-wave channel modeling


SystemVue's Baseband Exploration Libraries

Figure 2. SystemVue’s Baseband Exploration libraries build on top of Verification libraries. They provide Keysight instrument-grade verification for algorithm developers in the earliest phases of a PHY design, so that ideas are tested and proven right from the point of conception.


The W1906BEL 5G Baseband Exploration Library can be added to any SystemVue environment or bundle.

  • W1461 SystemVue Comms Architect
  • W1462 SystemVue FPGA Architect
  • W1464 SystemVue RF Architect
  • W1465 SystemVue System Architect

The W1906BEL does not require additional software modules, but other customers have found the following SystemVue models useful together with source code “exploration” libraries:

  • W1718 C++ Code Generator (for both import and export of C++ source code)
  • W1918 LTE-Advance baseband verification library (for compatibility studies)
  • W1902 Digital Modem library (for creating single-carrier reference waveforms)
  • W1715 MIMO Channel Builder (to leverage 4G MIMO channel models)
  • W1464 SystemVue RF Architect (for superior wideband RF transceiver modeling)
