lteDLSCHDecode

Downlink shared channel decoding

Syntax

  • [trblkout,blkcrc,stateout] = lteDLSCHDecode(enb,chs,trblklen,cwin,statein)
    example

Description

example

[trblkout,blkcrc,stateout] = lteDLSCHDecode(enb,chs,trblklen,cwin,statein) returns the information bits, trblkout, decoded from the input soft LLR codeword data, cwin. The DL-SCH decoder includes rate recovery, turbo decoding, block concatenation, and CRC calculations. The function also returns the type-24A transport block CRC decoding result in blkcrc and the HARQ process decoding state in stateout. The initial HARQ process state can be provided as the optional statein parameter. The function is capable of processing both a single codeword or pairs of codewords, contained in a cell array, for the case of spatial multiplexing schemes transmitting two codewords. The type of the return variable, trblkout, is the same as the input, cwin. If cwin is a cell array containing one or two codewords, trblkout is a cell array of one or two transport blocks. If cwin is a vector of soft data, trblkout is a vector also. If you are decoding a pair of codewords, you must provide pairs of modulation schemes and RV indicators in the appropriate parameter fields.

enb is an input parameter structure that may include optional fields defining the duplex mode. Since the duplex mode defaults to 'FDD', if the 'DuplexMode' field is absent, enb can be an empty structure.

chs is an input parameter structure defining aspects of the PDSCH onto which the codewords are mapped and the DL-SCH soft buffer size and redundancy versions of the received codewords.

trblklen is an input vector, one or two elements in length, defining the transport block lengths to which the input code blocks are rate recovered and decoded.

cwin is an input parameter containing the floating point soft LLR data of the codewords to be decoded. It is either a single vector or a cell array containing one or two vectors. If it is a cell array, all rate matching calculations assume that the pair is transmitting on a single PDSCH, distributed across the total number of layers defined in chs, as per TS 36.211 [1].

statein is an optional input structure array, empty or one or two elements, which can input the current decoder buffer state for each transport block in an active HARQ process. If statein is not an empty array and it contains a non-empty field, CBSBuffers, this field should contain a cell array of vectors representing the LLR soft buffer states for the set of code blocks at the input to the turbo decoder, after explicit rate recovery. The updated buffer states after decoding are returned in the CBSBuffers field in the output parameter, stateout. The statein array would normally be generated and recycled from the stateout of previous calls to lteDLSCHDecode as part of a sequence of HARQ transmissions.

trblkout is the output parameter containing the decoded information bits. It is either a single vector or a cell array containing one or two vectors, depending on the class and dimensionality of cwin.

blkcrc is an output array, one or two elements, containing the result of the type-24A transport block CRC decoding for the transport blocks.

stateout, the final output parameter, is a one- or two-element structure array containing the internal state of each transport block decoder. The stateout array is normally reapplied via the statein variable of subsequent lteDLSCHDecode function calls as part of a sequence of HARQ retransmissions.

This example generates and decodes 2 transmissions, one with RV set to 0 and one with RV set to 1, as part of a single codeword HARQ process for RMC R.7.

Set subframe number. Get the definition of RMC R.7. Generate transport block data. Apply DL-SCH transport channel coding chain to trBlkData. Create a codeword with RV = 0. Turn logical bits into 'LLR' data

nsf = 1;

rmc = lteRMCDL('R.7');

trBlkSize = rmc.PDSCH.TrBlkSizes(nsf);
codedTrBlkSize = rmc.PDSCH.CodedTrBlkSizes(nsf);
trBlkData = randi([0,1],trBlkSize,1);

rmc.PDSCH.RV = 0;
cw = lteDLSCH(rmc,rmc.PDSCH,codedTrBlkSize,trBlkData);

cw(cw == 0) = -1;

Initialize the decoder states for the first HARQ transmission. The returned decState contains the decoder buffer state for each transport block for an active HARQ process with RV = 1

decState = [];
[rxTrBlk,~,decState] = lteDLSCHDecode(rmc,rmc.PDSCH,trBlkSize,cw,decState);

Create a second retransmitted codeword. Turn logical bits into 'LLR' data. Use the previous transmission decoder buffer state, decState, as part of the sequence of active HARQ transmissions

rmc.PDSCH.RV = 1;
cw = lteDLSCH(rmc,rmc.PDSCH,codedTrBlkSize,trBlkData);

cw(cw == 0) = -1;
rxTrBlk = lteDLSCHDecode(rmc,rmc.PDSCH,trBlkSize,cw,decState);

Parameter FieldRequired or OptionalValuesDescription
DuplexModeOptional

'FDD' (default), 'TDD'

Duplexing mode, specified as:

  • 'FDD' for Frequency Division Duplex or

  • 'TDD' for Time Division Duplex

Because the duplex mode defaults to 'FDD', if this field is absent, enb can be an empty structure.

TDDConfigOptional

0 (default), 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Uplink–downlink configuration

Only required for 'TDD' duplex mode.

Data Types: struct

Channel configuration, specified as a structure having the following fields.

Parameter FieldRequired or OptionalValuesDescription
ModulationRequired

'QPSK', '16QAM', '64QAM', or '256QAM'

Modulation type associated with each transport block, specified as a character vector or, if there are 2 blocks, as a cell array of character vectors.

NLayersRequired

1, 2, 3, 4

Total number of transmission layers associated with the transport block or blocks.
