Construct channel object from set of standardized channel models


chan = stdchan(ts,fd,chantype)
[chan, chanprofile] = stdchan(...)
chan = stdchan(ts,fd,chantype, trms)


chan = stdchan(ts,fd,chantype) constructs a fading channel object chan according to the specified chantype. chantype is chosen from the set of standardized channel profiles listed below. ts is the sample time of the input signal, in seconds. fd is the maximum Doppler shift, in Hertz.

[chan, chanprofile] = stdchan(...) also returns a structure chanprofile containing the parameters of the channel profile specified by chantype.

chan = stdchan(ts,fd,chantype, trms) is used to create a channel object, chan, when chantype is any one of '802.11a', '802.11b' or '802.11g'. When using '802.11a', '802.11b' or '802.11g' channels, you must specify TRMS, which is the RMS delay spread of the channel model. As per 802.11 specifications, TS should not be larger than TRMS/2.

Set the sample rate and RMS delay profile. Set the maximum Doppler shift.

fs = 20e6;
trms = 100e-9;
fd = 3;

Create a 802.11g channel object.

chan = stdchan(1/fs,fd,'802.11g',trms);

Generate random data and apply QPSK modulation.

data = randi([0 3],10000,1);
txSig = pskmod(data,4,pi/4);

Filter the QPSK signal through the 802.11g channel.
