Simulink defined radio
Raspberry Pi is a low cost single-board computer that gained recently the attention of hobbyists and practitioners, especially for file server and media server applications.
Thanks to the free support package released by MathWorks, it is fully supported by Simulink, hence it can be programmed according to the Model Based Design paradigm. This means also users with no programming skills can design and implement their own applications on Raspberry Pi boards.
The material freely provided in this website (book + Simulink projects) is aimed at showing the implementation on Raspberry Pi boards of digital communication systems designed with Simulink. These practical experiences, intended for use within telecommunication courses, provide a viable, low cost, way to introduce students, hobbyists and technology enthusiasts to the Software-Defined Radio (SDR) design paradigm. This is what we mean by "Simulink defined radio".
More in general, the first chapters of the book show how to configure both Simulink and the Raspberry Pi in order make them cooperate. From that point on, general Raspberry Pi's applications, not necessarily concerning communication systems, can be easily developed within Simulink.
