5G Access: Ultra Mobile Broadband

The Ultra Mobile Broadband platform is a rapid prototype, high bandwidth, small form factor platform capable of prototyping advanced 5G technologies. The platform includes radios operating at 70 GHz with a 1 GHz bandwidth. Advanced 5G research, such as hybrid analog/digital beamforming and low-latency protocols are pursued through MATLAB based design and porting to FPGAs.


  • Very high user throughput of 2 Gbps peak with millimeter wave frequencies
  • Design flow from MATLAB system prototyping through FPGA targeting
  • Web-based user interface provides dashboards for data analysis 


  • Baseband Solution

    TDD-SC Waveform based on 802.11ad PHY

  • LDPC Coder

    Low-density parity-check

  • High Bandwidth

    71-76 GHz, 4 channels, 1 GHz bandwidth
