The Raspberry Pi is a low cost single-board computer that gained recently the attention of hobbyists and practitioners, especially for file server and media server applications. Thanks to the free support package released by MathWorks, it is fully supported by Simulink, hence it can be programmed according to the model-based design paradigm. This means that also users with no programming skills can design and implement their own applications on Raspberry Pi boards. In this paper we show how Raspberry Pi's boards can be used, jointly with Simulink, to easily implement digital communication systems. This allows the realization of practical experiences, intended for use within telecommunication courses, that provide a viable low-cost way to introduce students to the software-defined radio paradigm.

Abstract

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost single-board computer that gained recently the attention of hobbyists and practitioners, especially for file server and media server applications. Thanks to the free support package released by MathWorks, it is fully supported by Simulink, hence it can be programmed according to the model-based design paradigm. This means that also users with no programming skills can design and implement their own applications on Raspberry Pi boards. In this paper we show how Raspberry Pi's boards can be used, jointly with Simulink, to easily implement digital communication systems. This allows the realization of practical experiences, intended for use within telecommunication courses, that provide a viable low-cost way to introduce students to the software-defined radio paradigm.
