PUSCH Channel End-to-End Simulator
AccelerComm have developed an enhanced PUSCH channel that significantly improves spectral efficiency and dB gain. This dB gain can result in a significant reduction in cost per bit and higher quality of service for a given network.
Combining our advanced Channel Equalizer IP with QAM demapper, LDPC decoding, AccelerComm have created a complete high-performance 3GPP-compliant Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) channel accelerator for a gNB. To demonstrate the technical capability and benchmark the performance within your own simulation environment, the PUSCH Equalizer End-to-End Matlab models are now available for download to perform simulations.
Please complete the form to request a copy of our demo.
This demo is capable of measuring the throughput of the 3GPP 5G NR Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) when using the AccelerComm PUSCH Equalizer and a benchmarker from an industry-standard toolkit. More specifically, this simulation compares the throughput achieved by two sets of receiver components, where the first adopts the AccelerComm equalizer, QAM demapper and LDPC decoder components while the second adopts the corresponding components from the Matlab toolkit. A set of simulation parameters can be configured to emulate various uplink transmission systems with one UE and two interferers, including the number of frames, resource grid size, number of spatial streams, MIMO layers, the number of transmitting antenna elements and receiving antenna elements, etc.
System Simulation Diagram
In the following example a Throughput vs SINR plot is generated by the simulation. This corresponds to 4x transmission MIMO layers, 4x UE spatial streams, 4x gNodeB spatial streams, 256QAM modulation and low code rate for numerology 0. The plot measures and compares the throughput, where 100% throughput represents HARQ processes succeeding during the first transmission, with no need for any HARQ retransmissions. It can be seen that up to 5 dB gain can be observed in the low SINR range.
