What other similar toolboxes are out there that engineers are using for LTE system design? Has anyone tried this tool out yet?

Improving wireless design

Hi Max,

I share the same desire of having ubiquitous wireless communication.  When travelling in remote areas of New England, where I live,  or while going through Boston tunnels, I often wish I didn't lose reception right in the middle of a conversation.

As your chart notes and my experience validates, wireless technologies are rapidly evolving and growing in density, making their design and ultimate success quite challenging. The various wireless technologies need to be engineered and designed to play nice together.

For example, given that our smartphone includes more than one wireless technology – Bluetooth, LTE, and WiFi - engineers need to make sure that they model environmental effects like proximity of user and nearby objects, such as the user's car, to ensure robust transmission and reception. 

Through more reliable engineering design practices, we can all look forward to a future with fewer dropped calls.

I've used this toolbox very successfully to demodulate LTE uplink transmissions in signal captured in the field.  It is a great product!

@Max, thanks for posting this one. I contacted someone at The MathWorks about getting an in-person demo. MathWorks is about a 20-minute drive from here.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
