Physical Layer Design Flows

There are two primary flows that we employ when investigating new ideas in physical layer space. The first is a non-real-time system called WARPLab. This makes real-time use of the channel but all the transmitter and receiver processing is done offline in MATLAB. This is a good beginning when trying new physical layer ideas. The second is building real-time systems to be implemented in the FPGA. Hence the programs can be independent and standalone on the node. Once new ideas have shown promise they can be hardened. We primarily use System Generator to build our physical layers.
