MathWorks Rolls Out Communications and Electronics Seminars Nationally

5/8/2003 - The MathWorks announced its upcoming series of seminars for engineers and scientists within the communications, electronics, semiconductor, and aerospace and defense industries. The seminars, located across the country, will highlight new capabilities and features of Release 13, the latest release of The MathWorks entire product line, within the areas of wireless communication system design and real-time signal processing development and implementation on FPGAs and DSPs. The series will culminate with The MathWorks International Aerospace and Defense Conference to be held in June.

Engineers from The MathWorks will demonstrate tools that support the communications and electronics design flow, including capture of an executable specification, validation of system behavior, design verification and validation, and links to implementation tools for various targets. Attendees will learn the benefits of designing and validating the architecture and behavior of communications devices early in the design process, which results in a reduction of overall development time, cost, and risk.

Real-Time Signal Processing System Design
This seminar will demonstrate new methods and tools for design, simulation, implementation, and verification of real-time signal processing systems. Several aspects of developing complex signal processing applications, including advanced filter design, fixed-point systems, simulation, hardware-in-the-loop verification, and automatic code generation for fixed-point and floating-point DSP targets and FPGAs, will be covered.

Defense Applications: Communications and Signal Processing
Engineers provide a technical overview of simulation and automatic code generation techniques that address complex system design, including a simulation of satellite communications and radar systems as well as system-level design and implementation of real-time signal processing algorithms on FPGAs and DSPs.

Wireless Communication System Design with MATLAB and Simulink
This seminar will show how wireless communication system and semiconductor development can be accelerated with The MathWorks algorithm development and system-level design tools. Incorporation of MATLAB and Simulink into a design flow reduces development time, cost, and risk. Demonstrations include: 802.11a and b, WCDMA, and Bluetooth.
