5G Toolbox

Simulate, analyze, and test 5G communications systems

5G Toolbox™ provides standard-compliant functions and reference examples for the modeling, simulation, and verification of 5G New Radio (NR) and 5G-Advanced communications systems. The toolbox supports link-level simulation, golden reference verification, conformance testing, and test waveform generation.

With the toolbox you can configure, simulate, measure, and analyze end-to-end 5G NR communications links. You can modify or customize the toolbox functions and use them as reference models for implementing 5G systems and devices.

The toolbox provides functions and reference examples to help you characterize uplink and downlink baseband specifications and simulate the effects of RF designs and interference sources on system performance. You can generate waveforms and customize test benches, either programmatically or interactively using the Wireless Waveform Generator app. With these waveforms, you can verify that your designs, prototypes, and implementations comply with the 3GPP 5G NR specifications.
