This video series will provide details of using the Simulink® Model-Based Design approach to create a complete wireless transceiver with the physical layer (PHY) and the media access control (MAC) layer and build up a multi-node wireless network for simulation. It also demonstrates a step-by-step workflow on using MathWorks’ fixed-point designer tool and HDL coder to generate the HDL code of the wireless transceiver, as well as the procedure to set a multi-node SDR network and measure the real throughputs between the nodes. Finally, it presents the WLAN model of 802.11a OFDM PHY and MAC. Through these examples, this video series will demonstrate the capability and efficiency of the Simulink Model-Based Design of wireless transceivers from the very top of the system level to the bottom of the FPGA bit stream generation for hardware prototyping.
Part 1: Wireless Network Modeling Simulink modeling of wireless network is challenging for some wireless designers. This video shows a wireless network model with transceivers interconnected with fading channels.
Part 2: Wireless Network Hardware Implementation with SDR Wireless system engineers want to verify their design long before the HW design team gets the first silicon.
