[trblkout,blkcrc,stateout] = lteDLSCHDecode(enb,chs,trblklen,cwin,statein)
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
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,
is the same as the input,
a cell array containing one or two codewords,
a cell array of one or two transport blocks. If
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
enb is an input parameter structure that
may include optional fields defining the duplex mode. Since the duplex
mode defaults to
'FDD', if the
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 .
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
not an empty array and it contains a non-empty field,
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
in the output parameter,
would normally be generated and recycled from the
previous calls to
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
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
is normally reapplied via the
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); size(rxTrBlk) rxTrBlk(1:10)
