Researchers at CATT and NYU Wireless have built the world’s first wireless emulator suitable for 5G systems that feature massive bandwidths and hundreds of antenna elements. In this unique patented design, the solution emulates not only the wireless channel, but also the beamformers (or phased-arrays) on both the transmitter and receiver devices under test (DUTs). This joint emulation of the beamformer and the wireless channel is the key enabling technology that allows for faster development cycles, while significantly lowering the hardware cost and complexity of the emulator.
