Demystifying 5G – 5G New Radio (NR) waveform generation

How to generate a 5G New Radio (NR) waveform? This video demonstrates the generation of a 5G NR waveform using the R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator and the R&S®SMW-K114 5G air interface candidates option from Rohde & Schwarz. In this example the 5G waveform uses one of the physical layer parameterization currently discussed in 3GPP RAN1. […]
