In Part 1 of our series, we begin by building a baseline QPSK Model using Simulink. We will demonstrate how MathWorks tools can be used to:

  • Rapidly develop a baseline transmitter and receiver using library blocks
  • Verify the system performance by examining scatter diagrams, spectrum measurements and BER
  • Capture live test signals using test and measurement equipment (spectrum analyzer)

Product Focus

  • HDL Coder
  • Simulink
  • DSP System Toolbox
  • Communications System Toolbox
  • Instrument Control Toolbox
  • Data Acquisition Toolbox

Series: Implementing a Wireless Receiver on an FPGA

Part 1: Creating and Verifying a Baseline Wireless Transmitter and Receiver Using Simulink
In Part 1 of our series, we begin by building a baseline QPSK Model using Simulink.

Part 2: Elaborating and Prototyping the Transmitter and Receiver Model
In Part 2 of this three-part series, we elaborate and prototype the QPSK model built in part 1.

Part 3: Implementing and Verifying the Design on Target Hardware
In the final section of this three-part series, we implement and verify the design on target hardware.
