Key Features of the Support Package

The Communications Toolbox™ Support Package for USRP®[1] Embedded Series Radio enables you to design, prototype, and verify practical wireless communications systems on USRP® embedded series radio hardware.

Key Features

  • Use the USRP® embedded series radio as an I/O peripheral to transmit and receive real-time arbitrary waveforms using MATLAB® System objects or Simulink® blocks.

  • Transmit and receive RF signals out of the box, enabling the testing of SDR designs quickly, under real-world conditions.

  • Transmit and receive data on one or two channels.

  • Easy configuration of the RF radio settings.

  • Burst mode option for acquiring high-bandwidth signal.

  • In Simulink, customize and prototype SDR algorithms. Target only the FPGA fabric of the device, or deploy partitioned hardware-software co-design implementations across the ARM® processor and the FPGA fabric of the device.

  • Application examples for getting started.


  • SDR — A wireless device that typically consists of a configurable RF front end with an FPGA or programmable system-on-chip (SoC) to perform digital functions. For more details, see Software-Defined Radio (SDR).

  • SD card imageUSRP® embedded series radio image that is included with the support package. The image contains a simple prebuilt application that provides streaming IQ samples from the RF card to the host computer.

  • Custom bitstream — FPGA image created during the hardware-software co-design workflow. It contains user baseband processing algorithm.
