Presenter: Dr. Houman Zarrinkoub, Technical Marketing, MathWorks
Session 1: 9:30 - 12:30
Session Title: 4G LTE System Model in MATLAB: Mathematical Modeling
The 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) and LTE Advanced standards promise true mobile broadband connectivity with a remarkable maximum data rate of 1Gbps. In this seminar, we will examine the elegant mathematical foundation of the 4G LTE physical layer to understand how and why it can achieve such a remarkable feat. We will showcase some of its enabling technologies, such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), that contribute to its ability to achieve such a superb performance. We will also show where pragmatic reasons have shaped the formulation of many of its components.
Starting from underlying mathematical principles, we will use MATLAB to discuss the iterative process of analysis, design and optimization involved in the development of major components of 4G LTE wireless systems. The demonstration example will start with a simple communications system and progressively add components to approach a bare bones prototype of a 4G LTE system.
Highlights of the presentation include:
- Mathematical modeling of the LTE standard, specifically its physical layer (PHY) in MATLAB
- Examining four LTE enabling technologies: OFDM, MIMO, turbo coding and dynamic link adaptations
- Using the Communications System Toolbox to progressively incorporate components such as Modulators, Channel models, Turbo Encoder/Decoder, MIMO and OFDM into your model
- System-level throughput analysis with adaptive modulation based on channel characteristics
Session 2: 13:30 - 16:30
Session Title: 4G LTE System Model in MATLAB/Simulink: Simulation and Implementation
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technologies are at the heart of major 4G communication standards such as WiMAX and LTE. Because of the complexities of the underlying technologies many companies are adopting advanced modeling and simulation tools from the MathWorks to accelerate innovation in implementing and optimizing next generation of wireless systems.
Using models of real-world systems, in this seminar we will explore various stages of functional design starting from the executable specification all the way to code running on embedded signal processing hardware. This seminar provides you with an opportunity to understand how MATLAB, Simulink, Communications System Toolbox, and other MathWorks tools, can be used to:
- Accelerate the speed of your MATLAB-Simulink simulation at each step through parallel processing, code generation, GPU processing and using efficient algorithms
- Generate C code from your model with MATLAB Coder
- Prototype and test your model as a standalone desktop C/C++ application
- Fixed-point numerical representation of the system model components
- Generate VHDL or Verilog code to implement the design using FPGAs
