Hardware Support

USRP Support from Communications Toolbox

Design and prototype software-defined radio (SDR) systems using USRP® with MATLAB and Simulink.

Capabilities and Features

MATLAB® and Simulink® connect to USRP® software-defined radios (SDR) from Ettus Research LLC™ and National Instruments™ to provide a radio-in-the-loop design and modeling environment. With this support package, Communications Toolbox™, and a USRP® radio, you can design and verify practical SDR systems.

MATLAB and Simulink Support Package for USRP® Radio includes:

  • Use of USRP® as a standalone peripheral for live RF data I/O, including:
    • Functions and System objects for connecting MATLAB to USRP® radios
    • Blocks for connecting Simulink to USRP® radios

Supported Radios

  • B200 and B200mini series from Ettus Research LLC
  • X300 series from Ettus Research LLC, and USRP-294X and USRP-295X series from National Instruments
  • N200 series from Ettus Research LLC, and USRP-292X and USRP-293X series from National Instruments
  • N300 series from Ettus Research LLC
