Create signals that conform to 3GPP 5G NR standard with Keysight signal generators.


  • This software license enables the use of PathWave Signal Generation Desktop or PathWave Signal Generation Embedded for 5G NR to generate, export, download and playback 3GPP 5G NR (New Radio) waveforms based on Rel 15, 16 and 17
  • Create 3GPP 5G NR compliant signal for BTS and UE testing with LDPC and Polar channel coding and multi-antenna port
  • Support downlink channels for PBCH, PDSCH and PDCCH and uplink channels for PUSCH, PUCCH and PRACH
  • Support downlink signals for PSS/SSS, CSI-RS, PBCH-DMRS, PDSCH-DMRS, PDSCH-PTRS, PDCCH-DMRS and uplink signals for SRS, PUSCH-DMRS, PUCCH-DMRS and PUCCH-PTRS
  • Support test model presets for FR1 and FR2
  • Support bandwidth with 5~100 MHz for FR1 and 50/100/200/400/800/1600/2000 MHz for FR2
  • Support UL FRC configurations and UL/DL full-filled configurations
  • Support multiple BWP and mixed numerology in a single carrier
  • Support multi-user channel generation with PUSCH and PDSCH
  • Support downlink and uplink configuration with flexible sub-frame allocations
  • Enable flexible signal configuration with both single-carrier and multi-carrier support
  • Support real-time PUSCH HARQ and phase compensation (requires MXG-B/EXG-B option 660)
  • 5G NR signals can be generated by PathWave Signal Generation Desktop software or PathWave Signal Generation Embedded Application software
  • Keysight supports tiered PathWave signal generation models with N-model applications (N7631APPC with prefix "N") for high-performance HW platforms: VXG-C M9484C, VXG-B M9384B, and VXG-m M9383B,  E-model applications (E7631APPC with prefix "E") for mid-range HW platform: MXG N5186A. 
  • Higher-tiered models can run on lower tiered HW platforms, but not vice versa. For example, N7631APPC could run on MXG N5186A, but E7608APPC cannot run on VXG-C M9484C
