Design and Simulation of Wireless Transceivers

Chris Aden, MathWorks

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to design and simulate a wireless transceiver using MATLAB® and Simulink® products.
You will learn several aspects of modeling and simulating wireless communications systems, including:

  • Waveform and test bench creation using Communications System Toolbox and DSP System Toolbox
  • Modeling of 1/f noise, PLL phase noise, and other noise impairments using MATLAB and Simulink
  • Fast system simulation of wireless transceivers to determine SNR requirements of RF and analog subsystems using SimRF
  • Fast equivalent baseband simulation to assign gross noise specifications to the RF and analog subsystems
  • Detailed circuit envelope simulations of wireless transceivers in the presence of interference to determine RF and analog component specifications, including IP2, IP3, noise figure, and gain

About the Presenter: Chris Aden is the product manager for RF and analog solutions at MathWorks. Prior to MathWorks, Chris worked in product management at Research In Motion; in the research and development division of TriQuint Semiconductor, developing RF and millimeter wave IC technologies; and at Skyworks Solutions, where he focused on improving multichip module design processes. He has B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E. degrees from the University of Florida and Georgia Tech, respectively, and an M.S. in management and engineering from MIT.
