Test connection between host and radio hardware
testConnection( tests the
connection to the radio hardware specified by
function checks the hardware-software compatibility, the data paths between host
and radio hardware, and the RF loopback.
Before calling the function, make sure the SD card configured during hardware
setup is inserted into the reader of the radio hardware. You can also configure
an SD card by using the
For the RF loopback test, connect a cable or antenna to the transmit-and-receive connectors.

Test Radio Hardware Connection
Make sure your radio hardware is configured for host-radio communication by following the steps in Guided Host-Radio Hardware Setup.
Create a radio object for your radio hardware. For example:
dev = sdrdev('AD936x')
dev = SDRDevAD936x with properties: IPAddress: '192.168.3.2' DeviceName: 'AD936x'
Use this object to test host-radio connectivity.

HostIPAddress — IP address of host network connection
IP address of the host network connection, specified as a dotted-quad character vector. This IP address is configured during hardware setup. See Guided Host-Radio Hardware Setup.
