Engineering teams in the communications industry face the challenges of designing increasingly complex products in less time, while supporting evolving standards such as UMTS, LTE, WiMAX, TD-SCDMA, and VDSL.

These teams rely on MathWorks products to create innovative product designs faster. MATLAB® and Simulink® streamline design flows by helping them:

  • Efficiently design communications algorithms and systems
  • Combine digital, analog/mixed-signal, and control logic design domains with channel and traffic modeling, in a single system model
  • Connect to USRP® hardware to enable radio-in-the-loop design
  • Use the system model as an executable specification for simulation and prototyping
  • Verify the implementation of the physical layer and MAC layer designs against the system model

The Adopting Model-Based Design Interactive Kit has more information for organizations or programs seeking to transition to Model-Based Design.
