New toolbox enables designers to explore algorithms develop WLAN IP

Natick, Mass. – 20 October 2015

MathWorks introduced WLAN System Toolbox, providing standard-compliant functions for the design, simulation, analysis, and testing of wireless LAN communications systems.

Signal analysis, IP exploration, PHY simulation and over-the-air testing with MATLAB and WLAN System Toolbox

WLAN System Toolbox expands capabilities of MATLAB for wireless development by providing configurable physical layer waveforms for IEEE 802.11ac and 802.11b/a/g/n standards. The system toolbox provides reference designs to enable exploration of baseband specifications, and demodulate and recover signals. Users can also study the effects of RF designs and interference sources on system performance.

"WLAN System Toolbox enables designers to focus on designing unique IP, instead of spending time creating reference models and generating test signals," said Ken Karnofsky, senior strategist for signal processing applications, MathWorks. "Since the successful introduction of LTE System Toolbox, we have seen great demand for similar capabilities for the WLAN market. WLAN System Toolbox delivers these capabilities for WLAN system designers and test engineers."

WLAN System Toolbox provides MATLAB source code, allowing engineers to customize algorithms and analyses. The toolbox also generates unencrypted, hardware-independent waveforms for simulation and over-the-air testing.

WLAN System Toolbox Provides:

End-to-end system simulation and algorithm development A golden reference for design verification Measurement and analysis of system performance Over-the-air waveform transmission and reception with software-defined radios and RF instruments C-code generation support
