With the Lyrtech Hardware Demonstrator it is possible to implement Real Time Processing algorithms for communication technolog. For this, the environment consists of multiple programable elements (four Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs and four TI DSPs C6416). Under using the simulation tool Simulink from Mathworks Inc. algortihm will be designed in a model-based description, after that hardware files will be generated.
MASI is our Multiple Antenna System for ISM-Band Transmission.
One motivation to built a MIMO hardware demonstrator is that the assumptions made about real channels may be incorrect, and the behavior of MIMO systems should be investigated under realistic conditions. Therefore it is sufficient to transmit and receive over a real channel and process the received data offline at the workstation environment. This basic idea roots in our single antenna system.
--> easy interfacing with Matlab or other tools
