NI Selects AccelerComm's 5G NR Polar IP for Its Software Defined Radio Platform

AccelerComm announced that its 5G NR polar IP has been adopted by National Instruments. The IP has been selected for use in National Instruments' (NI) USRP RIO software defined radio family of products, which are used by wireless researchers in academic and industrial  teams working across a range of mobile and communication technologies to accelerate product development.

The USRP RIO uses 2x2 MIMO transceivers, each tunable to independent frequencies between 50 MHz to 6 GHz with 40 or 120 MHz per channel, giving a real-time bandwidth of 80 dB of dynamic range. The addition of AccelerComm's IP enables third party developers to create both infrastructure and handset products for 5G NR networks.

Polar coding has been selected by 3GPP as part of the 5G NR specification, and AccelerComm's high performance offering is 100 percent compliant to the standard - including to 3GPP's recent modifications - and covers the total processing chain from the 3GPP TS 38.212 standard including the encode / decode engine, channel interleaving, rate matching, CRC and early termination.
