The W1715 MIMO Channel Builder provides multi-channel fading simulation blocks that incorporate realistic antenna patterns for LTE system architects, receiver algorithm developers, and baseband hardware designers. It consists of a geometry-based WINNER-II MIMO channel model and a correlation-based MIMO channel model, thus adding standards-compliant 4G fading profiles to the Keysight SystemVue platform. It interoperates well with the W1910 LTE and W1918 LTE-Advanced Baseband Verification Libraries, as well as other Keysight measurement products, such as the 89601 VSA, N5106A PXB source, and other products. The W1715 MIMO Channel Builder also provides an economical, predictive alternative to real-time hardware faders for up to 8x8 MIMO links.
