MATLAB & Simulink


Software-Defined Radio with Zynq using Simulink

Course Highlights

This hands-on, one-day course focuses on modeling designs based on software-defined radio in MATLAB® and Simulink® and configuring and deploying on the ADI RF SOM. Topics include:


-Modeling communications systems using Simulink
-Implementing Radio I/O with ADI RF SOM and Simulink
-Prototype deployment with real-time data via HW/SW co-design

Course benefits

After the training, the participants will be able to design and simulate communication system with MATLAB and SIMULINK, implement radio I/O with ADI RF SOM with SIMULINK, and do prototype deployment with real-time data using HW/SW co-design.
