nrPDCCHConfig

PDCCH configuration parameters

Description

The nrPDCCHConfig object sets physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) configuration parameters, as defined in TS 38.211 Section 7.3.2 [1] and TS 38.213 Section 10 [2].

Creation

Description

example

pdcch = nrPDCCHConfig creates a PDCCH configuration object with default properties.

pdcch = nrPDCCHConfig(Name,Value) specifies properties using one or more name-value pair arguments. Enclose each property in quotes. For example, 'NSizeBWP',36 configures the PDCCH with a bandwidth part (BWP) consisting of 36 resource blocks (RBs). Unspecified properties take their default values.

Properties

expand all

Start of BWP resource grid relative to the common resource block 0 (CRB 0), specified as a nonnegative integer. Set this property relative to the carrier such that the property value is in this range: NStartGridNStartBWP < (NStartGrid + NSizeGrid), where NStartGrid and NSizeGrid are properties of the carrier configuration object nrCarrierConfig. This figure shows where in the carrier the BWP is located in terms of this property and the NSizeBWP property.

Data Types: double

Number of RBs in BWP resource grid, specified as an integer from 1 to 275. This property must be less than or equal to the size of the carrier, which is specified by the NSizeGrid property of the carrier configuration object nrCarrierConfig.

Data Types: double

Control-resource set (CORESET) configuration, specified as an nrCORESETConfig object.

Search space set configuration, specified as an nrSearchSpaceConfig object.

Radio network temporary identifier (RNTI), specified as an integer from 0 to 65,519.

  • If the higher layer parameter pdcch-DMRS-ScramblingID is configured, RNTI is the cell radio network temporary identifier (C-RNTI) with integer value from 1 to 65,519.

  • If pdcch-DMRS-ScramblingID is not configured, RNTI is 0.

Data Types: double

PDCCH demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) scrambling identity, specified as an integer from 0 to 65,535.

  • If the higher layer parameter pdcch-DMRS-ScramblingID is configured, DMRSScramblingID is the PDCCH DM-RS scrambling identity with integer value from 0 to 65,535.

  • If pdcch-DMRS-ScramblingID is not configured, DMRSScramblingID is the physical layer cell identity NCellID with integer value from 0 to 1007.

Data Types: double

PDCCH aggregation level, specified as 1, 2, 4, 8, or 16.

Data Types: double

Candidate used for PDCCH instance, specified as an integer from 1 to 8. The value of this property is an index from the set of candidates specified for the aggregation level by the SearchSpace.NumCandidates property.

Data Types: double

Configure the carrier with default configuration parameters.

carrier = nrCarrierConfig;

carrier = nrCarrierConfig;
carrier.NStartGrid = 3;
carrier.NSizeGrid = 60;

Configure noninterleaved CORESET with 6 frequency resources and a duration of 3 OFDM symbols.

crst = nrCORESETConfig;
crst.FrequencyResources = ones(1,6);
crst.Duration = 3;
crst.CCEREGMapping = 'noninterleaved';

Configure the PDCCH with the specified bandwidth part and CORESET.

pdcch = nrPDCCHConfig;
pdcch.NStartBWP = 5;
pdcch.NSizeBWP = 48;
pdcch.CORESET = crst;
pdcch.AggregationLevel = 16;

Generate PDCCH resource element indices and DM-RS symbol indices using 1-based, subscript indexing form relative to the BWP grid.

[ind,~,dmrsInd] = nrPDCCHResources(carrier,pdcch,...
    'IndexOrientation','bwp','IndexStyle','subscript');

Configure the carrier with default configuration parameters.

carrier = nrCarrierConfig;

Configure the CORESET with 6 frequency resources, a duration of 3 OFDM symbols, and a REG bundle size of 3.

crst = nrCORESETConfig;
crst.FrequencyResources = ones(1,6);
crst.Duration = 3;
crst.REGBundleSize = 3;

Configure the search space set for the PDCCH with the specified number of candidates at each aggregation level.

cfgSS = nrSearchSpaceConfig;
cfgSS.NumCandidates = [5 5 3 2 1];

Configure the PDCCH with the specified bandwidth part, CORESET, and search space set.

pdcch = nrPDCCHConfig;
pdcch.NStartBWP = 6;
pdcch.NSizeBWP = 36;
pdcch.CORESET = crst;
pdcch.SearchSpace = cfgSS;

Generate PDCCH DM-RS symbols for all candidates and aggregation levels.

[~,allDMRS] = nrPDCCHSpace(carrier,pdcch)
allDMRS=5×1 cell array
    { 18x5 double}
    { 36x5 double}
    { 72x3 double}
    {144x2 double}
    {288x1 double}

Verify that the number of generated candidates for the PDCCH DM-RS symbols at each aggregation level matches the number of candidates specified by the search space set.

numCandidates = [...
    size(allDMRS{1},2) ... 
    size(allDMRS{2},2) ... 
    size(allDMRS{3},2) ... 
    size(allDMRS{4},2) ... 
    size(allDMRS{5},2)];
