With video and data streaming use escalating on mobile devices, the LTE standard is quickly becoming the new norm. This video gives a quick overview of the new collaboration between Rohde & Schwarz and Synopsys that will accelerate the design and verification of LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless systems. This joint effort verifies Synopsys’ LTE reference libraries against Rohde & Schwarz’ test and measurement solutions. The results? More confidence in standards compliance and a reduction in time-to-first-test while gaining more efficient interaction between algorithm designs and hardware testers.
The validated Synopsys LTE library will become available with the 2011.06 release. This will also include the initial version of LTE-Advanced. Access is free to all Synopsys LTE library customers under maintenance. The LTE library works for both SPW and System Studio.
The automatic configuration of Rohde & Schwarz signal generators from Synopsys’ algorithm simulation tools, SPW and System Studio, will become available to select customers in June 2011, with general availability expected in October 2011.
