Note: As of R2023b, the content in the Communications Toolbox™ Library for ZigBee® and UWB has been absorbed into Communications Toolbox. With that release or later, you no longer need to download the library.
The Communications Toolbox™ Library for ZigBee® and UWB provides end-to-end simulation of narrowband and ultra wideband (UWB) low-rate wireless personal area networks for the entire communications stack (PHY, MAC, NET, APP). This library applies for sensor networks, home automation, industrial automation, health monitoring and the Internet of Things (IoT). The library includes ZigBee and UWB simulation examples.
UWB (since R2021b)
- PHY layer simulation of waveform generation and decoding for IEEE® 802.15.4a/z (UWB) HRP mode
- MAC layer simulation of UWB ranging and localization using IEEE 802.15.4z
PHY layer simulation of:
- Waveform generation and decoding for the original IEEE 802.15.4 specification (OQPSK), and IEEE 802.15.4b/c/d
- Practical signal recovery for IEEE 802.15.4 OQPSK signals at 2.4 GHz
MAC layer simulation of:
- Frame generation and decoding for the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC
- Asynchronous CSMA IEEE 802.15.4 MAC
- NET layer simulation of frame generation and decoding
- APP layer simulation of frame generation and decoding for application profiles (Home Automation, Light Link, Smart Energy)
