I am looking at buying a AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ board to play around with, along with the ZED ARM board. I have a licence for MATLAB, but do not have Simulink. Will this be a big problem?
The FMComms3 supports MATLAB or Simulink with identical functionality. You can also use GNU-Radio, or custom code with the No-OS driver.
