RF system design doesn’t have to be performed in isolation. Using system-level models, you can explore ideas and tradeoffs, optimize system performance, and better communicate with stakeholders. Satellite communications innovators are going beyond spreadsheets and lab prototypes and rapidly simulating systems including RF satellite links using multicarrier circuit envelope.

You can build smart RF systems in four steps with MATLAB®:

  • Use the RF Budget Analyzer app instead of a spreadsheet to calculate the RF budget
  • Automatically generate a multicarrier model to simulate the RF behavior
  • Integrate signal processing algorithms and control logic with your RF model
  • Validate your RF model with measured data
