Nutaq LTE demo shows FPGA-based PicoSDR 8x8 working with Matlab LTE System Toolbox running 16-element MIMO

Nutaq just posted a rather complex video showing its 2nd-generation PicoSDR 8x8 connected to a 16-element, 2D antenna array and processing a real-world eNB downlink. The hardware system is being controlled by Matlab’s LTE System Toolbox. Nutaq’s PicoSDR 8×8-E relies on one 0-6Ghz radio, built on AD9361 RFICs from Analog Devices and controlled by an on-board Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA as shown in the following block diagram:
