The 3GPP Release 9 compliant LTE UE PHY IP is a Category 4 UE solution. The current LTE design supports 2 transmit and 2 receiver antenna ports. The UE Layer 1 is optimized for TI’s C66x DSP core. The design is flexible to scale the UE categories across various Keystone II platforms and others. Layer 1 supports QAM64 highest MCS along with MIMO to demonstrate best throughputs. Transmission modes like SISO & MIMO (SM and SFBC) are supported. Layer 1 and Higher Layer Software (HLS) are interfaced with an interface like FAPI.
The LTE UE reference design has inter worked with multiple eNBs and T&M equipment. The UE Stack supports different form-factors for the applications like handset, Man-pack, or Outdoor type
The LTE UE PHY solution includes an interactive configuration tool with which User can manage all standard configurations. The tool provides continuous monitoring of the UE status. The GUI tool is available for installation on Windows and Linux OS.
