Implementation of FPGA-Based Channelizers with MATLAB and Simulink

Robert Anderson, MathWorks

Channelizers are playing an increasing role as a way to manage the ever-widening bandwidth of digitized signals in radar and communications systems. Given their high frequency operation, inherent parallelism, and high-speed I/O, FPGAs provide an ideal platform for implementing channelizers.

In this webinar, engineers from MathWorks and Altera demonstrate how to use MathWorks products to design and implement channelizers on Altera Stratix V FPGAs. You will learn how to construct testbenches and generate stimulus using MATLAB code. We use an example based on an Altera reference design to show how a Simulink model of the channelizer can be targeted to a Stratix V using Altera DSP Builder.

We cover the use of HDL cosimulation and FPGA-in-the-loop with the Altera Stratix V DSP Development Kit to verify that the original Simulink models have been correctly implemented.

Who should attend:

  • Radar algorithm developers
  • Communications designers
  • Hardware designers
