USRP® Support Package from Communications System Toolbox

Platform for software-defined radio (SDR) applications

MATLAB® and Simulink® connect to USRP® software-defined radios (SDR) from Ettus Research LLC™ to provide a radio-in-the-loop design and modeling environment. With this support package, Communications System Toolbox™, and a USRP® radio, you can design and verify practical SDR systems starting with Release 2011a of MATLAB and Simulink. This support package does not require GNU Radio open-source software.

MATLAB and Simulink Support Package for USRP® Radio includes:

  • Use of USRP® as a standalone peripheral for live RF data I/O, including:
    • Functions and System objects for connecting MATLAB to UHD™-based USRP® radios
    • Blocks for connecting Simulink to UHD™-based USRP® radios
  • Support for optional HDL code generation to customize USRP® N210 hardware, which requires HDL Coder
  • Examples to assist you:
    • QPSK transmitter and receiver
    • FM mono and stereo receivers
    • FRS/GMRS transmitter and receiver

MATLAB and Simulink Support Package for USRP® Radio has been tested on N210 and USRP2® devices using WBX, SBX, XCVR2450, TVRX, TVRX2, LFRX, LFTX, DBSRX, and DBSRX2 daughterboards. Support may also extend to other UHD-based radios and daughterboards from Ettus Research LLC™.
