(To be removed) Interface with ZedBoard radio hardware and FMCOMMS2/3/4 RF card

The comm.SDRDevZedBoardFMC234 radio object will be removed in a future release. Use the comm.SDRDevAD936x radio object instead. For more information, see Compatibility with Previous Releases.


Create a comm.SDRDevZedBoardFMC234 radio object to interface with ZedBoard™ radio hardware and an Analog Devices® FMCOMMS2, FMCOMMS3, or FMCOMMS4 RF card on the same Ethernet subnetwork. With this object, you can configure the radio hardware and the host computer for proper communication.


To create a comm.SDRDevZedBoardFMC234 radio object, use the sdrdev function with argument 'ZedBoard and FMCOMMS2/3/4'.

dev = sdrdev('ZedBoard and FMCOMMS2/3/4')

Name of Xilinx Zynq-based radio hardware, specified as 'ZedBoard and FMCOMMS2/3/4'.

IP address of the radio hardware, specified as a dotted-quad character vector.

The IPAddress property of the radio object must match the physical IP address of the radio hardware assigned during hardware setup. For more information, see Guided Host-Radio Hardware Setup. By default, this IP address is ''. If you configure the radio hardware with an IP address other than the default, update the IPAddress property of the radio object.

For example:

dev = sdrdev('ZedBoard and FMCOMMS2/3/4');
dev.IPAddress = '';
