What Is the LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite?

LabVIEW Communications combines LabVIEW NXG with tools that are specifically created to help you rapidly prototype wireless communications systems.

Explore LabVIEW Communications Features

LabVIEW Communications helps you design, develop, and deploy wireless communications systems to multiple hardware targets such as general-purpose processors, NI Linux Real-Time OSs, and FPGAs all in the same environment. Wireless design and prototype teams can reduce the time to validate wireless algorithms with over-the-air (OTA) signals using a unified graphical programming approach and the ability to directly call code created using The MathWorks, Inc. MATLAB® software and import custom VHDL code. LabVIEW Communications users with an active Standard Service Program (SSP) membership are eligible to upgrade to the latest version.

Reduce Development Time

Use a single design environment for general-purpose processors, NI Linux Real-Time, and FPGAs.

Connect to Your Code Created Using MATLAB

Directly call code created using MATLAB without code modifications, and quickly validate your simulation algorithm with OTA signals.

Use FPGA-based Communications IP

Innovate faster with wireless technology standards such as IEEE 802.11, LTE, and MIMO application frameworks.

What Can You Do With LabVIEW Communications?

LabVIEW Communications minimizes your time to results with a single unified environment for processors and FPGA-based development. See below to explore how this suite solves common challenges for communications designers.

Program Processors and FPGAs in One Environment

Design and implement next-generation wireless systems in a single, graphical programming environment using LabVIEW Communications to program general-purpose processors, NI Linux Real-Time OSs, and FPGAs.

Quickly Connect Your MATLAB Code to RF Signals

LabVIEW Communications features an interface for MATLAB that you can use to directly call any custom function or script created using the software from the LabVIEW environment so that it connects to OTA signals effortlessly.

Instantly Connect to Hardware With RF Front End

LabVIEW Communications reduces your setup time with instant connections to NI software defined radio hardware such as USRP (Universal Software Radio Peripheral) products. You can connect your algorithm to FPGAs to develop a real-time wireless communications prototype.

Use High-performance FPGA IP With Application Frameworks

LabVIEW Communications offers ready-to-run reference designs that provide a rich set of high-performance FPGA IP. You can get to results faster with 802.11, LTE, and MIMO FPGA-based PHY and MAC layer reference designs.
