802.11 Reference Design: Experiment Framework Examples

We have created a number of example scripts that demonstrate various features of the Experiments Framework. The examples are listed below.

Many of these examples rely on log data files captured from 802.11 Reference Design nodes. We have prepared sample data files you can use to explore these examples without creating your own logs.

For more details on the Python classes and methods provided by the wlan_exp package, refer to the package documentation.

Example Requirements Description
Blink Node LEDs 1 or more nodes Blinks the hex display LEDs on all discoverable nodes
Aggregate Throughput 2 nodes Starts traffic flow from AP to STA and calculates throughput
using Tx/Rx packet counts at each node.
Tx/Rx Log Capture 2 nodes Generates traffic flows between an AP and STA using LTGs, retrieves
the logs from both nodes and writes each to an HDF5 log file
Tx/Rx Log Analysis Log File Processes log file to calculate statistics
Channel Estimate Viewer Log file (with Rx events)
Extracts OFDM Rx events from a log file, saves them to a structured
array, imports the array into MATLAB and displays the channel
Continuous Log Capture 1 node Initializes node, waits for specified duration, then retrieves the
node's log and writes it to an HDF5 log file
