USRP® Support from Communications System Toolbox

Design and prototype software-defined radio (SDR) systems using USRP® with MATLAB and Simulink.

Capabilities and Features

MATLAB® and Simulink® connect to USRP® software-defined radios (SDR) from Ettus Research LLC™ to provide a radio-in-the-loop design and modeling environment. With this support package, Communications System Toolbox™, and a USRP® radio, you can design and verify practical SDR systems.

MATLAB and Simulink Support Package for USRP® Radio includes:

  • Use of USRP® as a standalone peripheral for live RF data I/O, including:
    • Functions and System objects for connecting MATLAB to UHD™-based USRP® radios
    • Blocks for connecting Simulink to UHD™-based USRP® radios

Supported Radios

* SISO and 2x2 MIMO modes supported.

Supported Daughter Cards

Use any daughter card compatible with the supported UHD release. To find the supported UHD release, refer to the “UHD Support Update” or “Hardware Support” sections of the release notes.
