When paired with NI software defined radio hardware, this software reference design provides a documented, reconfigurable, and parameterized physical layer written and delivered in LabVIEW source code that is designed to enable researchers to build both traditional MIMO and massive MIMO prototypes for wireless applications working on 5G prototyping. The LabVIEW communications MIMO Application Framework enables wireless designers to develop algorithms and evaluate custom IP to solve many of the practical challenges associated with real-world multiuser MIMO deployments. Scalable from 4 to 128 antennas, the MIMO Application Framework, is also designed to enable users to create small to large scale antenna systems with minimal system integration or design effort. Researchers can use the system out of the box to conduct massive MIMO experiments and seamlessly integrate their own custom signal processing algorithms in a fraction of the time compared to other approaches, which in turn accelerates the design process.
