System object: comm.RectangularQAMTCMDemodulator
Package: comm

Demodulate convolutionally encoded data mapped to rectangular QAM constellation

Syntax

Y = step(H,X)
Y = step(H,X,R)

Description

Y = step(H,X) demodulates the rectangular QAM modulated input data, X, and uses the Viterbi algorithm to decode the resulting demodulated, convolutionally encoded bits. X must be a complex, double or single precision column vector. The step method outputs a demodulated, binary data column vector, Y. When the convolutional encoder represents a rate K/N code, the length of the output vector is K*L, where L is the length of the input vector, X.

Y = step(H,X,R) resets the decoder to the all-zeros state when you input a reset signal, R that is non-zero. R must be a double precision or logical, scalar integer. This syntax applies when you set the ResetInputPort property to true.

    Note:   H specifies the System object™ on which to run this step method.

    The object performs an initialization the first time the step method is executed. This initialization locks nontunable properties and input specifications, such as dimensions, complexity, and data type of the input data. If you change a nontunable property or an input specification, the System object issues an error. To change nontunable properties or inputs, you must first call the release method to unlock the object.
