Re: 802.11 reference design

Yes, you can edit the Tx PHY core using Xilinx System Generator / Simulink.

Re: 802.11 reference design

i didn't use system generator till now. Is editing  the wlan_phy_tx_pmd(TX PHY core) for adding new block is a complex task? what is the best way to learn it?

Yes, any FPGA design is a complex task. Our tutorials provide a basic introduction to System Generator. The Xilinx documentation and training materials are a more comprehensive resource.

Re: 802.11 reference design

we have designed a 16QAM modulator in verilog HDL. now we are trying to make one warpv3 node as qam modulator. after giving bitstream input to  modulator it will generate modulated output. After configuring warp board with this modulator, will the board transmit the modulated output automatically or is there any other requirements or steps I need to follow to make the transmission through RFa of warp board.

Re: 802.11 reference design

You will need to integrate your custom PHY transmitter with required support cores and a MicroBlaze CPU. The support cores and CPU are required to connect and configure the ADC/DAC/RF/clocking circuits on the WARP v3 hardware. Our Reference Designs (802.11, WARPLab) are good examples of designs which implement these interfaces.
