The Xilinx® FPGA radio support package enables you to design and verify practical wireless communications systems. Using Communications System Toolbox™ in conjunction with a Xilinx FPGA board and an RF FMC card, you can design and prototype systems that process real-time wireless signals in MATLAB® and Simulink®.
The support package includes FPGA programming files that allow you to quickly transmit and receive RF signals right out of the box. Optionally, you can use HDL Coder™ to generate and download a custom bitstream to reprogram the FPGA radio.
Supported FPGA Development Boards and RF FMC Cards:
Select from the options below:
|You can buy MATLAB Student, along with Communications System Toolbox (an add-on product for $29), to develop software-defined radio (SDR) applications such as broadcast radio, digital audio broadcast (DAB), digital video broadcast (DVB), and GPS receivers.|
For Home Use
|If you are a radio hobbyist and would like to experiment with real world RF signals, you can buy MATLAB Home to develop software radio applications.|
See the hardware support package system requirements table for current and prior version, release, and platform availability.
