Title: From Concept to Prototype: NI software defined radio platform and 5G overview

Abstract: National Instruments is collaborating with top researchers focused on 5G wireless communications. The graphical system design approach combines LabVIEW Communications System Design Software with SDR Platform to help researchers innovate faster. By using this approach, engineers can reduce the time form theory to results by testing their designs in a real-world environment.In this session, you will learn the key elements of NI SDR platform and four potential technologies to make 5G a reality, which include massive MIMO, densification of network, new waveforms and mmWave communications.

Biography :James Kimery is the Director of Marketing for National Instruments RF / Communications and SDR initiatives. In this role, James is responsible for the company's communication system design and software defined radio strategies. He also manages NIí»s advanced research RF and Communications Lead User programs. Prior to joining NI, James was the Director of Marketing for Silicon Laboratories' wireless division which is now a subsidiary of ST-Ericsson. As Director, the wireless division grew revenues exceeding $250M (from $5M) and produced several industry innovations including the first integrated CMOS RF synthesizer and transceiver for cellular communications, the first digitally controlled crystal oscillator, and the first integrated single chip phone (AeroFONE). AeroFONE was voted by the IEEE as one of the top 40 innovative ICs ever developed. James also worked at National Instruments before transitioning to Silicon Labs and led many successful programs including the concept and launch of the PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation (PXI) platform. James was a founding member of the VXIplug&play Systems Alliance, VISA working group, and PXI System Alliance. He has authored over 26 technical papers and articles covering a variety of wireless and test and measurement related topics. James holds degrees from the University of Texas at Austin (MBA) and Texas A&M University (BSEE).
