I'm wondering on the feasability of sending a signal from Matlab through an arduino to other hardware and then at some undetermined time afterward I receive a signal back.
Assumptions to help with my question:
- The arduino is there to act as a go between for the hardware and Matlab. If I need two arduino's, that's fine.
- the hardware connected on the other side of the arduino is unimportant. I just want to know how to send and receive a signal through an arduino that will likely look like a chirp. If this requires 2 arduino's and two computers, that can be arranged.
- The sent signal itself will likely be a chirp and will last for a maximum of 2 seconds and a frequency that will be less than 10 GHZ but more than 2 MHZ.
- The received signal SHOULD be similar to the sent signal as long as the hardware I have in mind does as it should.
If there are any questions, or thoughts to help me get going on this, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm very comfortable with Matlab and only recently came across arduino's which led to a couple personal projects i'm working on.
Edit1: I went back and specified a little more. Hope this helps.
