Get Started with RF Toolbox
RF Toolbox™ provides functions, objects, and apps for designing, modeling, analyzing, and visualizing networks of radio frequency (RF) components. The toolbox supports wireless communications, radar, and signal integrity projects.
RF Toolbox lets you build networks of RF components such as filters, transmission lines, matching networks, amplifiers, and mixers. Components can be specified using measurement data such as Touchstone files, network parameters, or physical properties. The toolbox provides functions for analyzing, manipulating, and visualizing RF data. You can analyze S-parameters; convert among S, Y, Z, T, and other network parameters; and visualize RF data using rectangular and polar plots and Smith® Charts. You can also de-embed, check, and enforce passivity, and compute group and phase delay.
The RF Budget Analyzer app lets you analyze transceiver chains in terms of noise, power, and nonlinearity and generate RF Blockset™ models for circuit envelope simulation. Using the rational function fitting method, you can model backplanes, interconnects, and linear components, and export them as Simulink® blocks, SPICE netlists, or Verilog®-A modules for time-domain simulation.
