Taking Wireless Infrastructure Systems Design from 3G to 5G and Beyond

When R&D teams combine field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) with Model-Based Design, they improve productivity, reduce time-to-market, and deliver higher quality products.Today’s FPGAs offer speed, low power consumption, and the flexibility to adapt to rapidly changing technical requirements. Originally simple interface devices featuring thousands of configurable logic blocks, they have evolved into sophisticated system-on-chips (SoCs) with millions of gates, multiple-processor cores, DSP blocks, memory blocks, and interfaces. A new class of Xilinx® FPGA devices for wireless infrastructure features GHz clock speeds, multiple processor cores, RF converters and for-ward error correction blocks, and adaptable hardware that enables custom memory hierarchies.

This paper shows why combining Model-Based Design with FPGAs has been a game-changer for wireless infrastructure development. It traces the evolution of Xilinx FPGAs and Model-Based Design with MATLAB® and Simulink® across three generations of wireless infrastructure standards and shows how wireless communication companies are combining FPGAs with Model-Based Design to deliver high-quality products that meet 3G, 4G, and 5G standards.
