Summary Multipath fading is one of the significant factors that affect the performance of a wireless communications link. Theoretical results exist for calculating link performance in the presence of a fading channel for some modulation schemes and some types of fading. In other cases, link performance must be evaluated by simulation. Mathworks' Simulink is one tool used for these simulations. Mathworks provides pre-constructed blocks for both Rician and Rayleigh fading which accept parameters defining these fading models. The proper use of these blocks to include the parameters that define fading channels has been described. These blocks make it easy to model complex fading systems. Simulation results for link performance obtained using these channel-modeling blocks in BPSK and BFSK systems correspond closely to the theoretical results. The work presented here should be of interest to others studying wireless communications.
