Downlink PDSCH demodulation conformance test tool




lteDLConformanceTestTool opens the downlink conformance test tool to carry out the simulation for a given parameterization. The tool performs the PDSCH demodulation performance test as defined in TS 36.101 [1]. The various test setups can easily be configured via the user interface. This tool supports both frame structures—frame structure type-1 (FDD) and type-2 (TDD).

The throughput performance graphs updates dynamically during the simulation run and provides help in an early understanding to the behavior of system for given setup. The graphical throughput visualization is divided in two parts: one updates the cumulative throughput per given signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio for the number of simulated frames and the other holds the trend of throughput curve for each SNR distinguished by a distinct color.

The tool is able to utilize a user-defined configuration structure by selecting User defined from the reference channel pop-up menu. A prompt requests a configuration structure name. The tool expects this variable to be present in the MATLAB® base workspace. You can create the basic configuration structure with the function lteRMCDL by choosing the closely matched RMC and modifying to meet your requirements.

The simulation result is stored in a user-defined variable specified via the tool in the base workspace.
