While MATLAB is a widely used platform during the research phase to prototype algorithm, several product development lifecycles involve working with frameworks that support other programming languages like C/C++, Java, Python or SystemVerilog.

Code generation is fundamentally changing the way engineers work in semiconductor industry, especially while working on 5G and other complex wireless design environments. Instead of writing thousands of lines of code by hand, engineers are automatically generating production code to increase productivity, improve quality, and foster innovation.

Most product development teams spend a significant amount of effort working on redesigning the algorithms and systems in languages supported by those frameworks either due to some inherent benefits they offer or due to legacy reasons. MATLAB offers a 2-way, flexible interface with other programming languages that will help developers maximize reuse and minimize risks and errors as designs transition from research to development and from one environment to another.

In this webinar, you will learn how MATLAB can be used to enhance product development workflows, be it software or hardware.


  • Generate C/C++ Code for the 5G functionalities
  • Integrating existing code directly into MATLAB for simulation and prototyping
  • Access MATLAB algorithms easily from external IDEs
  • Packaging MATLAB algorithms for scalable deployment in C/C++/Python/Java interfaces
  • Integration and co-existence of MATLAB with hardware IC development tools
