Configuring the Radio640 Reference Clock

Nutaq’s second generation PicoSDRs utilize our second generation Radio640 FMCs. Radio640 is based on AD9361 RF chip from the Analog devices. In this short application note, we highlight the different options that are available to configure the Radio640 reference clocks. The host APIs, which form part of the Nutaq Board and Software (BAS) software suite, [...]

LTE-based IoT – Demo at Embedded World Conference 2017

This demonstration will be presented at the Embedded World Conference 2017 from March 14-16 in Nürnberg, Germany. Nutaq will be located inside DSPecialist's booth in Hall 4, booth #236. DSPecialist is Nutaq's distributor  in Germany.

Reciprocity Calibration for Massive MIMO -Part II

Statistical Models for Propagation Channels Between Internal BS radios In the first part of this series blogs, we have discovered that the Massive MIMO system can use internal BS radios to achieve reciprocity calibration instead of relying on external calibrations. The focus of reciprocity calibration is to find out the calibration coefficients bp. A method [...]

Reciprocity Calibration for Massive MIMO – Part I

Reciprocity Calibration for Massive MIMO -Part I Introduction In modern communication systems, pilot symbols are transmitted from every antenna of a base station (BS) in the downlink channel and received at the terminal side, then sent back to the BS with channel state information (CSI) to calculate pre-coding coefficients. In Massive MIMO system, such a [...]

PicoLTE – LTE Network-in-a-Box Part II – eNB & MME Configuration Files

eNB & MME Configuration Files This blog post forms the second part of our series on PicoLTE (see Part I here). In this post, we will explore the eNB and MME configuration files and explain some of the important parameters that can be specified for eNB and the MME. As mentioned in the first video [...]

Video – PicoLTE Part I – Introduction to PicoLTE, an LTE Network-in-a-box

Introduction In 2016, Nutaq shared its expertise on LTE in 15 cities across Asia, Europe and the United States in full-day workshops called "Discover SDR-Based LTE & Pave the Way to Smarter Testing". The workshop tour was a huge success and the participants really enjoyed discovering such a cost-effective alternative to carrier grade network equipment or [...]
