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