A wireless communication system can be tested either in actual conditions or by using a hardware simulator reproducing actual conditions. With a hardware simulator it is possible to freely simulate a desired type of a radio channel. This paper presents new frequency domain and time domain architectures for the digital block of a hardware simulator of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) propagation channels. This simulator can be used for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) 802.11ac applications. It characterizes an indoor scenario using TGn channel models.
