Matlab helps electronics designer engineers produce and study communication system models using simulink. Simulink contains almost all block components used in today's communication system. Various types of modulation, channels, sources such as pulse generators, sine wave, sinks, filters, amplifiers etc. See also the Online Matlab Courses simulink video tutorials in this blog. Matlab is very helpful to quickly create communication models and contains demos tutorials. It also has simRF, simMechanics, HDL coders that can be exported to other electronics design softwares(EDA) such as Xilinx FPGA software, ADS, Orcad Cadence for PCB etc. Online Matlab Courses with teaches how you can use these features. The video tutorials available here contains some simulink video tutorials which teaches how to create model.
