LTE-V LabVIEW RFC (66000031)
This category provides resources for the product SEA LTE-V Add-On for LabVIEW - RF-COMPLIANCE (66000031) for the NI USRP and PXI/VST hardware platforms. The package consists of two parts, the API with functions palette and the tool HCM (Host Control Manager) to interface the hardware. The combination of the HCM and the API delivers a software environment, which enables implementations of LTE-V transceivers (PHY and MAC) for signalling tests with additional testing features.
The API provides the RF-Compliances (RFC) APIs for programming. The RFC API adds functions for measurement and evaluation of RF signals against the standard for compliance purposes. The API is build upon the COMMS API (they are dependent of the COMMS API) and therefore require the COMMS API for operation. The COMMS API is automatically installed along if not yet installed.
The Host Control Manager (HCM) is controlled by the API and interfaces the used communication hardware. Supported hardware is either NI USRP or NI PXI (VST).
Note: The HCM comes in two variants: USRP and VST. For each variant a separate executable is provided. Both executable are equal. The only difference is the FPGA compilation result, which is functionally the same for both variants but separate for the different FPGA targets.
