nrPDCCHResources

Generate PDCCH and PDCCH DM-RS resources

Description

example

ind = nrPDCCHResources(carrier,pdcch) returns physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) resource element indices ind, as defined in TS 38.211 Section 7.3.2 [1]. The input carrier specifies carrier configuration parameters for a specific OFDM numerology. The input pdcch specifies PDCCH configuration parameters.

example

[ind,dmrsSym,dmrsInd] = nrPDCCHResources(carrier,pdcch) also returns PDCCH demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) symbols dmrsSym and PDCCH DM-RS resource element indices dmrsInd, as defined in TS 38.211 Section 7.4.1.3.

example

[ind,dmrsSym,dmrsInd] = nrPDCCHResources(carrier,pdcch,Name,Value) specifies output formatting options using one or more name-value pair arguments.

Input Arguments

Carrier configuration parameters for a specific OFDM numerology, specified as an nrCarrierConfig object.

PDCCH configuration parameters, specified as an nrPDCCHConfig object.

Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: 'IndexStyle','subscript','IndexBase','0based' specifies the indexing form and indexing base of the output.

Resource element indexing form, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'IndexStyle' and one of these values:

  • 'index' — The indices are in linear index form.

  • 'subscript' — The indices are in [subcarrier, symbol, antenna] subscript row form.

Data Types: char | string

Resource element indexing base, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'IndexBase' and one of these values:

  • '1based' — The index counting starts from one.

  • '0based' — The index counting starts from zero.

Data Types: char | string

Indexing orientation of PDCCH and DM-RS resource elements, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'IndexOrientation' and one of these values:

  • 'carrier' — Indices are referenced with respect to the carrier grid.

  • 'bwp' — Indices are referenced with respect to the bandwidth part.

Data Types: char | string

Data type of PDCCH DM-RS symbols, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'OutputDataType' and one of these values:

  • 'double' — Output symbols are of double data type.

  • 'single' — Output symbols are of single data type.

Data Types: char | string

Output Arguments

collapse all

PDCCH resource element indices, returned as one of these values:

  • M-by-1 vector — When 'IndexStyle' is set to 'index'.

  • M-by-3 matrix — When 'IndexStyle' is set to 'subscript'. The matrix rows correspond to the [subcarrier, symbol, antenna] subscripts based on the number of subcarriers, OFDM symbols, and number of antennas, respectively.

M depends on the aggregation level of the PDCCH and is equal to pdcch.AggregationLevel × 6 × 12 × 3 / 4.

Depending on the value of 'IndexBase', the indices are either 1-based or 0-based.

Data Types: uint32

DM-RS symbols, returned as an N-by-1 complex vector. N depends on the aggregation level of the PDCCH and is equal to pdcch.AggregationLevel × 6 × 12 × 1 / 4.

Data Types: single | double

DM-RS resource element indices, returned as one of these values:

  • N-by-1 vector — When 'IndexStyle' is set to 'index'.

  • N-by-3 matrix — When 'IndexStyle' is set to 'subscript'. The matrix rows correspond to the [subcarrier, symbol, antenna] subscripts based on the number of subcarriers, OFDM symbols, and number of antennas, respectively.

N depends on the aggregation level of the PDCCH and is equal to pdcch.AggregationLevel × 6 × 12 × 1 / 4.

Depending on the value of 'IndexBase', the indices are either 1-based or 0-based.
