If no transmission is required, leave this parameter empty.

EPDCCHTypeRequired

'Localized', 'Distributed'

EPDCCH transmission type

EPDCCHPRBSetRequired

Vector of zero-based indices for the PRB pairs corresponding to the EPDCCH PRB set. The number of PRB pair indices must be a power of 2.

If no transmission is required, leave this parameter empty.

0 (default), scalar integer

Index generation options, specified as a character vector or a cell array of character vectors that can contain the following values.

OptionValuesDescription
Indexing style

'ind' (default), 'sub'

Style for the returned indices, specified as one of the following options.

  • 'ind' — returns the indices in linear index form as a column vector (default)

  • 'sub' — returns the indices in [subcarrier, symbol, antenna] subscript row style. The number of rows in the output, ind, is the number of resource elements (NRE). Thus, ind is an NRE-by-3 matrix.

Index base

'1based' (default), '0based'

Base value of the returned indices. Specify '1based' to generate indices where the first value is one. Specify '0based' to generate indices where the first value is zero.

Whether in linear or subscript format style, the indices are always formed out of [subcarrier, symbol, antenna] subscripts. These subscripts identify the used resource elements in each subframe resource grid per antenna port.

For the EPDCCH, the antenna subscripts have the possible range 1...4 (if index is one-based), which represents antenna ports p = 107...110. For a localized EPDCCH transmission, the antenna subscripts are a single value out of 1...4, dependent on the RNTI and ECCEs selected. For a distributed EPDCCH transmission, the antenna subscripts alternate between one of two values: {1,3} (p = 107,109) for normal cyclic prefix, and {1,2} (p = 107,108) for extended cyclic prefix. See TS 36.211 [1], Section 6.8A.5. Use these indices to index the subframe grid directly. The grid comprises the four possible EPDCCH antenna ports (p = 107...110) and is represented as an.NSC-by-NSYM-by-4 array.

Data Types: char | cell

Output Arguments

collapse all

EPDCCH subframe resource element indices, returned by default in one-based linear indexing form as a numeric column vector of length NRE-by-1. NRE is the number of subframe resource elements. Optionally, for subscript-specific indexing style [subcarrier, symbol, antenna], ind is returned as a numeric matrix of size NRE-by-3. The grid comprises the four possible EPDCCH antenna ports (p = 107,...,110) and is represented as an NSC-by-NSYM-by-4 array. NSC is the number of subcarriers, NSYM is the number of symbols, and 4 is the number of antenna ports.

The indices are for a single transmission instance of the EPDCCH. The order of the indices is the same as required for the complex EPDCCH symbols mapping. Generate these symbols using lteEPDCCH. The indices are parameterized in terms of a configured PRB pair set that 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 within the set of EPDCCH candidates.

The EPDCCH can use either localized or distributed transmission, differing in the mapping of ECCEs to REs, active PRB pairs, and antenna ports.
