lteEPDCCHSpace

EPDCCH search space candidates

Syntax

[ind,info] = lteEPDCCHSpace(enb,chs)

Description

example

[ind,info] = lteEPDCCHSpace(enb,chs) returns a matrix or cell array of EPDCCH ECCE candidate indices, and related dimensional information for the given cell-wide settings structure and EPDCCH transmission configuration structure. Depending on the configuration, the function returns a matrix of candidates for a single EPDCCH set, or a cell array containing one or two matrices of candidates for one or two EPDCCH sets.

EPDCCH Search Space for DCI Format 2A and 1.

For a particular configuration, establish the sizes of DCI messages for format 2A and format 1. Note that for DCI messages conveyed on the EPDCCH, ControlChannelType should be set to 'EPDCCH'.

enb.NDLRB = 50;
enb.CellRefP = 1;
enb.NCellID = 0;
enb.NSubframe = 0;
enb.CFI = 1;
chs.EPDCCHType = 'Localized';
chs.EPDCCHPRBSet = (0:3).';
chs.EPDCCHFormat = 1;
chs.RNTI = 7;
chs.ControlChannelType = 'EPDCCH';

dcisizes = lteDCIInfo(enb,chs);
format2Asize = dcisizes.Format2A
format1size = dcisizes.Format1
format2Asize =

  uint64

   42


format1size =

   33

Create the EPDCCH search space candidates for a localized EPDCCH transmission of a DCI format 2A message.

chs.DCIFormat = 'Format2A';
[candidates,info] = lteEPDCCHSpace(enb,chs)
candidates =

     4     7
     8    11
    12    15
     0     3


info = 

  struct with fields:

           nEPDCCH: 126
       NECCEPerPRB: 4
      NEREGPerECCE: 4
    NECCEPerEPDCCH: 4
        EPDCCHCase: 1
             NECCE: 16

Create the candidates for a DCI format 1 message for the same configuration. The DCI format 1 message is smaller than the format 2A message, resulting in a change of case number (info.EPDCCHCase) from 1 to 3. The aggregation level (info.NECCEPerEPDCCH) changes from 4 to 2, resulting in a greater number of candidates.

chs.DCIFormat = 'Format1';
[candidates,info] = lteEPDCCHSpace(enb,chs)
candidates =

     2     3
     4     5
     6     7
    10    11
    12    13
    14    15


info = 

  struct with fields:

           nEPDCCH: 126

        EPDCCHCase: 3

Output Arguments

collapse all

EPDCCH ECCE candidate indices, returned as an M-by-2 matrix or a cell array containing 2 M-by-2 matrices. M is the number of EPDCCH candidates monitored for the configuration provided. This variable is defined in TS 36.213 Tables 9.1.4-1a to 9.1.4-5b. Each two-element row of the matrix ind (or the rows of each matrix in cell array ind) contains the inclusive indices of a single EPDCCH candidate location.

  • If chs.EPDCCHPRBSetList and chs.EPDCCHTypeList are present and either chs.EPDCCHPRBSet or chs.EPDCCHType are absent, one or two EPDCCH sets are returned in a cell array containing one or two matrices, one for each set.

  • If both chs.EPDCCHPRBSet and chs.EPDCCHType are present, only the single candidate matrix which matches the PRB set size and EPDCCH type given by chs.EPDCCHPRBSet and chs.EPDCCHType wil be returned. This allows the number of candidates M to be correctly calculated for TS 36.213 Tables 9.1.4-3a to 9.1.4-5b (corresponding to two EPDCCH sets) while returning a single set of candidates in matrix form. This format is consistent with the parameterization other EPDCCH-related functions that take CHS.EPDCCHPRBSet and CHS.EPDCCHType as parameters and operate on a single EPDCCH set.

  • If chs.EPDCCHPRBSetList is absent, then chs.EPDCCHPRBSet is required, and if chs.EPDCCHTypeList is absent then chs.EPDCCHType is required.
