Communications Toolbox functionality can be used to process captured or live over-the-air wireless signals. 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 FPGAs 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).
