LabVIEW Communications LTE Application Framework

This course provides an introduction to the LTE Application Framework, which provides FPGA-based LTE PHY and MAC layer IP. Learn how the open and modifiable FPGA IP blocks are structured and how they talk to the host so that you know how to make modification to fit your application needs. This course also includes an instruction on the FPGA programming environment for LabVIEW NXG such that you will learn how you can use the product for LTE-based prototyping.
