Is there any current (or planned) support for 5G mmWave (> 6GHz) simulation? I am looking for a way to generate mmWave waveform files that can be exported as a Matlab .mat file and then reproduced by real-time by an arbitrary waveform generator.

basically our 5G LL Simulator generates any kind of multi carrier signal, please refer to the list of features for details. This signal however, is not specific to any carrier frequency since it is a baseband signal. I am not quite sure what you have in mind for a mmWave waveform?
I am looking for a way to generate a valid short sample 5G mmWave waveform to test an FPGA DSP board in our lab. This sample would be an array of I and Q values representing the 5G mmWave waveform picked up by an antenna.
If your simulator just generates the baseband signal, is there a way to capture some frames of data out of the simulator and then modulate them up to the carrier frequency?
you may just consider the generated transmit signal and multiply it with a carrier of your choice. Please keep in mind that we are just implementing the PDSCH and PUSCH in our simulator. Depending on what you consider as a “representative” 5G waveform, there are many logical channels missing.
