Advanced Signal Processing from MathWorks
September 26, 2010
MathWorks, Natick, MA, offers new capabilities for its Simulink and MATLAB products to enable design of advanced signal processing and communications systems. SimRF lets system architects use Simulink to design and verify complete wireless communication systems with true-to-form RF subsystem models and advanced circuit envelope and harmonic-balance methods. A major update to Simulink HDL Coder now supports rapid design iterations by highlighting critical paths in the model and estimating hardware resource utilization. It also supports serialization, resource sharing, and pipelining optimizations and its FPGA Workflow Advisor automates synthesis and implementation on Xilinx and Altera FPGAs. Finally, enhancements to Communications Blockset, Signal Processing Blockset, and Video and Image Processing Blockset provide >250 algorithms with a standardized interface to process streaming data in MATLAB; the resulting MATLAB programs can be used directly in Simulink models.
