comm.gpu.ConvolutionalDeinterleaver System object

Package: comm

Restore ordering of symbols using shift registers with GPU

Description

The GPU ConvolutionalDeinterleaver object recovers a signal that was interleaved using the GPU-based convolutional interleaver object. The parameters in the two blocks should have the same values.

    Note:   To use this object, you must install a Parallel Computing Toolbox™ license and have access to an appropriate GPU. For more about GPUs, see GPU Computing in the Parallel Computing Toolbox documentation.

A GPU-based System object™ accepts typical MATLAB® arrays or objects that you create using the gpuArray class as an input to the step method. GPU-based System objects support input signals with double- or single-precision data types. The output signal inherits its datatype from the input signal.

  • If the input signal is a MATLAB array, then the output signal is also a MATLAB array. In this case, the System object handles data transfer between the CPU and GPU.

  • If the input signal is a gpuArray, then the output signal is also a gpuArray. In this case, the data remains on the GPU. Therefore, when the object is given a gpuArray, calculations take place entirely on the GPU and no data transfer occurs. Invoking the step method with gpuArray arguments provides increased performance by reducing simulation time. For more information, see Establish Arrays on a GPU in the Parallel Computing Toolbox documentation.

To recover convolutionally interleaved binary data:

  1. Define and set up your convolutional deinterleaver object. See Construction.

  2. Call step to convolutionally deinterleave according to the properties of comm.gpu.ConvolutionalDeinterleaver. The behavior of step is specific to each object in the toolbox.

Construction

H = comm.gpu.ConvolutionalDeinterleaver creates a GPU-based convolutional deinterleaver System object, H. This object restores the original ordering of a sequence that was interleaved using a convolutional interleaver.

H = comm.gpu.ConvolutionalDeinterleaver(Name,Value) creates a GPU-based convolutional deinterleaver System object, H, with the specified property Name set to the specified Value. You can specify additional name-value pair arguments in any order as (Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN).

H = comm.gpu.ConvolutionalDeinterleaver(M,B,IC) creates a convolutional deinterleaver System object H, with the NumRegisters property set to M, the RegisterLengthStep property set to B, and the InitialConditions property set to IC. M, B, and IC are value-only arguments. To specify a value-only argument, you must also specify all preceding value-only arguments.

Properties

NumRegisters

Number of internal shift registers

Specify the number of internal shift registers as a scalar, positive integer. The default is 6.

RegisterLengthStep

Number of additional symbols that fit in each successive shift register

Specify the number of additional symbols that fit in each successive shift register as a positive, scalar integer. The default is 2. The first register holds zero symbols.

InitialConditions

Initial conditions of shift registers

Specify the values that are initially stored in each shift register (except the first shift register, which has zero delay) as a numeric scalar or vector. The default is 0. If you set this property to a scalar, then all shift registers, except the first one, store the same specified value. If you set it to a column vector with length equal to the value of the NumRegistersproperty, then the i-th shift register stores the i-th element of the specified vector. The value of the first element of this property is unimportant, since the first shift register has zero delay.

Interleave and Deinterleave Random Data

Interleave and deinterleave random data. Then, compare the original sequence, interleaved sequence and restored sequence.

Create a GPU-based Convolutional Interleaver with three internal shift registers capable of fitting two additional symbols. The initial value stored in each shift register is [-1 -2 -3].

hInt = comm.gpu.ConvolutionalInterleaver('NumRegisters', 3, ...
    'RegisterLengthStep', 2, ...
    'InitialConditions', [-1 -2 -3]');

Create a GPU-based Convolutional Deinterleaver with three internal shift registers capable of fitting two additional symbols. The initial value stored in each shift register is [-1 -2 -3].

hDeInt = comm.gpu.ConvolutionalDeinterleaver('NumRegisters', 3, ...
    'RegisterLengthStep', 2, ...
    'InitialConditions', [-1 -2 -3]');

Copy numeric data to the GPU.

data = gpuArray((0:20)');

Run the simulation by using the step method to process data.

intrlvData = step(hInt, data);
deintrlvData = step(hDeInt, intrlvData);

Compare the original sequence, interleaved sequence and restored sequence.

[data, intrlvData, deintrlvData]
