MATLAB and Simulink for Wireless Communications

Design, optimize, deploy, and test wireless communications systems

MATLAB® and Simulink® can make your wireless communications designs faster and more efficient with modeling, simulation, testing, and implementation tools. Reduce development time, identify, and eliminate design problems early, streamline testing and verification, and automate many wireless design tasks. Ensure reliability and performance throughout your design workflow, from developing advanced algorithms to analyzing signals and engineering your end-to-end system configuration. You can deploy your generated code to radio and hardware and then test your deployed prototypes and devices.
