MathWorks has introduced a new WLAN System Toolbox for its MATLAB product, which is claimed to provide standard-compliant functions for design, simulation, analysis, and testing of wireless LAN communications systems. The new WLAN System Toolbox enables designers to explore algorithms, develop WLAN IP, and measure system performance, the company noted.
MathWorks said that the WLAN System Toolbox expands MATLAB’s capabilities for wireless development by providing configurable physical layer waveforms for IEEE 802.11ac and 802.11b/a/g/n standards. It provides reference designs to enable exploration of baseband specifications, and demodulate and recover signals, the company explained.
The WLAN System Toolbox in MATLAB provides functions including end-to-end system simulation and algorithm development, reference for design verification, as well as measurement and analysis of system performance. The toolbox also provides users with over-the-air waveform transmission and reception with software-defined radios and radio frequency instruments, and C-code generation support, MathWorks said.
Ken Karnofsky, Senior Strategist, Signal Processing Applications, MathWorks, said WLAN System Toolbox enables designers to focus on designing unique IP, instead of spending time creating reference models and generating test signals. He added that MathWorks has seen increased demand for capabilities for the WLAN market, since the successful introduction of LTE System Toolbox.
