RF and Mixed Signal
MATLAB® and Simulink® products provide engineers with higher-level abstractions to implement RF and mixed-signal systems with greater speed and fidelity in a unified platform. Engineers can:
Model RF and antenna elements, RF transceivers and front ends, and RF PCBs using measurement data such as S-parameters, physical properties, or data sheet specifications.
Develop analog and mixed-signal components such as ADCs, DACs, PLLs, power converters, and SerDes systems and generate IBIS-AMI models for high-speed digital interconnects.
Generate and analyze pattern distortion, compute impedance mismatches, perform RF budget analysis, fit S-parameter data, and visualize antenna coverage.
Observe the effects of ISI, jitter, noise, insertion loss, return loss, and crosstalk, and verify channel compliance with industry standards such as IEEE 802.3, OIF, PCle, and DDR.
