MathWorks Consulting Services enable communication engineers to quickly design, simulate, and prototype communications systems. We provide assistance applying MATLAB and Simulink to the design of source coding, channel coding, modulation, equalization, synchronization, channel modeling, and network modeling. MathWorks Consultants work with engineering teams to enable rapid prototyping of algorithms and generation of C code and HDL code for deployment. Engineering teams in the communications industry face the challenges of designing increasingly complex products in less time, while supporting evolving standards.

MathWorks Consultants work with you to:

  • Model your system at an appropriate level of abstraction via algorithmic simulation, time-based simulation, event-based simulation, or any combination
  • Characterize system performance quantitatively by methods such as bit error rate (BER) computations, adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR) measurements, or error vector magnitude (EVM) measurements
  • Determine whether system performance meets standards of acceptability
  • Convert floating-point data types to fixed point to implement high-speed signal processing algorithms
  • Generate C code or HDL code for verification, rapid prototyping, and implementation
  • Optimize models for specific hardware architectures and integrate legacy code with the generated code

With knowledge transfer and self-sufficiency as the end goal of every project, MathWorks Consultants function as part of your development team.
