Communications Toolbox 2.0 Release Notes

New Features

The Communications Toolbox 2.0 and the Communications Blockset 2.0 are now separate products (that is, the Communications Toolbox no longer includes blocks).

This section introduces the new features and enhancements added in the Communications Toolbox 2.0 since the Communications Toolbox 1.4.

Convolutional Coding Functions

The Communications Toolbox processes feedforward and feedback convolutional codes that can be described by a trellis structure or a set of generator polynomials. It uses the Viterbi algorithm to implement hard-decision and soft-decision decoding. These new functions support convolutional coding:

For more information about using these functions, see Convolutional Coding in the Communications Toolbox User's Guide.

Gaussian Noise Functions

These new functions create Gaussian noise:
