lteEPDCCHDMRS

EPDCCH demodulation reference signals

Syntax

sym = lteEPDCCHDMRS(enb,chs)
sym = lteEPDCCHDMRS(enb,chs,opts)

Description

example

sym = lteEPDCCHDMRS(enb,chs) returns the Enhanced Physical Downlink Control Channel Demodulation Reference Signal (EPDCCH DM-RS) symbols for transmission in a single subframe. By default the symbols are returned as a column vector. The order of the symbols is the same as the order that results when you use lteEPDCCHDMRSIndices to map them into an N-by-M-by-4 array. This array represents the resource element subframe grid across the four possible EPDCCH antenna ports (p = 107...110).

The symbols are parameterized in terms of a configured PRB pair set which defines:

  • the overall set of possible EPDCCH candidates and

  • the aggregation of one or more consecutive enhanced control channel elements (ECCE). This aggregation identifies the specific EPDCCH instance that the DM-RS is associated with.

The DM-RS symbols are created only for the specific PRB pairs and antenna ports that the corresponding EPDCCH is mapped to.

For a localized EPDCCH transmission, the EPDCCH is associated with a single antenna port from p = 107...110, dependent on the chs.RNTI and ECCEs selected. Thus, the DM-RS antenna port symbols are output only for that single port.

For a distributed transmission, the EPDCCH is mapped to two antenna ports in an alternating fashion. Therefore, the DM-RS symbols are generated for the PRBs in both ports: p = 107,109 for normal cyclic prefix and p = 107,108 for extended cyclic prefix. The output is ordered so that the symbols for the lowest antenna ports index come first. This order matches that of the DM-RS RE indices produced by lteEPDCCHDMRSIndices.

example

sym = lteEPDCCHDMRS(enb,chs,opts) enables additional control over the contents and format of the symbols with the options cell array, opts. You can use this syntax to return the symbols as a numeric matrix, where each column contains symbols for an active antenna port.

This function performs no precoding. If necessary, apply precoding externally.

Specify the cell-wide settings and channel transmission configuration in parameter structures enb and chs.

enb.NDLRB = 6;
enb.NSubframe = 0;
chs.EPDCCHECCE = [0 7];
chs.EPDCCHType = 'Localized';

Note: The warning messages generated simply advise you that default values are available and being used for uninitialized parameters. To suppress warnings for defaulted lte parameter settings, precede code with the following command: lteWarning('off','DefaultValue')
