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™.
The support packages for SDR support both fixed bit stream and custom bit stream (user-provided logic) workflows (SDR Targeting).
For more information about software-defined radios with MATLAB and Simulink, visit Software-Defined Radio (SDR) on the MathWorks® web site.
