Cell-specific reference signal


sym = lteCellRS(enb)
sym = lteCellRS(enb,ports)


sym = lteCellRS(enb) returns cell-specific reference signal symbols for cell-wide settings in the enb structure. sym is a complex-valued column vector containing cell-specific reference signal symbols. Unlike other physical channels and signals, the symbols for multiple antennas are concatenated into a single column rather than returned in a matrix with a column for each antenna. The reason for this behavior is that the number of symbols varies across the antenna ports.


sym = lteCellRS(enb,ports) returns cell-specific reference signal symbols for antenna ports specified in the vector, ports (0,1,2,3), and cell-wide settings structure, enb. In this case, CellRefP is ignored if present in enb and ports is used instead.

This example shows different numbers of cell-specific reference signal symbols transmitted at antenna port 0 and 2.

Initialize cell wide parameter structure, enb, to RMC R.6

enb = lteRMCDL('R.6');

Observe the number of cell-specific reference symbols on port 0

cellRefPort0 = length(lteCellRS(enb,0))
cellRefPort0 = 200

Observe the number of cell-specific reference symbols on port 2

cellRefPort2 = length(lteCellRS(enb,2))
cellRefPort2 = 100

Input Arguments
