Communications Toolbox™ software can read a signal from external hardware devices using the Communications Toolbox support packages for software-defined radio (SDR). You can design, prototype and test SDR applications in MATLAB® and Simulink® with live radio signals. Use the supported hardware as a radio peripheral with the supplied bit stream and also run your own design in the FPGA with the automated targeting workflow using HDL Coder™.
Generate both fixed and user-provided bit streams with hardware support packages that support HDL targeting. For example, the Communications Toolbox Support Package for Xilinx® Zynq®-Based Radio and Communications Toolbox Support Package for USRP® Embedded Series Radio can be used for this purpose.
See Supported Hardware for more information on the SDR hardware support packages.
For more information about SDRs used with MATLAB and Simulink, visit Software-Defined Radio (SDR) on the MathWorks® web site.
