In Software Defined Electronics (SDE), the software and hardware components are completely separated. Every information processing system from communications to measurement engineering is implemented in BaseBand (BB) on a SW platform and the interface between the baseband and RF/microwave domains is assured by a universal HW device. Due to the universality of HW device, the implementation of different RF/microwave equipment requires only the change of SW in the application layer. Matlab simulators are used to evaluate the feasibility and performance of new signal processing algorithms and equipment everywhere from the academia to industry. This contribution shows how a Matlab BB simulator developed to determine the system performance of an FM-DCSK transceiver can be integrated directly into the SDE platform. The usability and the effectiveness of SDE approach is verified by comparing the simulated BB and measured 2.4-GHz microwave signals.
