USRP® Support Package from Communications System Toolbox

Platform for software-defined radio (SDR) applications.

MATLAB® and Simulink® connect to USRP® software-defined radios (SDR) from Ettus Research LLC™ to provide a radio-in-the-loop design and modeling environment. With this support package, Communications System Toolbox™, and a USRP® radio, you can design and verify practical SDR systems starting with Release 2011a of MATLAB and Simulink. This support package does not require GNU Radio open-source software.
