PHY Components

Physical layer options, parameterization, and waveform generation and analysis

Communications Toolbox™ Library for the Bluetooth® Protocol functions and configuration objects model Bluetooth physical layer (PHY) processing. Use these functions to generate, analyze, and decode Bluetooth low energy (BLE) and Bluetooth basic rate/enhanced data rate (BR/EDR) waveforms that are compliant with the Bluetooth Core Specification. These features enable you to design and characterize PHY processing blocks in Bluetooth communication links. You can use this functionality as a reference in verification, performance analysis, conformance testing, and radio front-end (RF)-PHY testing. Additionally, the library includes BLE direction-finding functionality to estimate angle of arrival (AoA) and angle of departure (AoD).
