ltePHICHInfo

PHICH resource information

Syntax

Description

example

info = ltePHICHInfo(enb) returns a structure, info, containing information about the physical hybrid ARQ indicator channel (PHICH) subframe resources.

Examples

collapse all

Get PHIH resouce information for normal cyclic prefix system subframe with 50 DL resource blocks and HICH group multiplier set to 'Sixth'. See that there are 16 PHICH available, split between two PHICH groups of 8 sequences.

Initialize the cell-wide configuration structure, enb

enb.NDLRB = 50;
enb.Ng = 'Sixth';

Display the PHICH information

info = ltePHICHInfo(enb)
info = 

  struct with fields:

             NREG: 6
              NRE: 24
           NPHICH: 16
          NGroups: 2
    NMappingUnits: 2
       NSequences: 8
    PHICHDuration: 1

This example shows that for RMC R.14, there are 16 PHICH available, split between two PHICH groups of 8 sequences.

Initialize the cell-wide configuration structure, enb, using RMC R.14

rc = 'R.14';
enb = lteRMCDL(rc);

Display the PHICH information

info = ltePHICHInfo(enb)
info = 

  struct with fields:

             NREG: 6
              NRE: 24
           NPHICH: 16
          NGroups: 2
    NMappingUnits: 2
       NSequences: 8
    PHICHDuration: 1

PHICH subframe resource information, returned as a scalar structure. info contains the following fields.

Parameter FieldDescriptionValuesData Type
NRE

Number of resource elements (REs) assigned to all PHICH

Nonnegative scalar integer

uint64
NREG

Number of resource element groups assigned to all PHICH

Nonnegative scalar integer

uint64
NPHICH

Number of individual PHICH available

Nonnegative scalar integer

uint64
NGroups

Number of PHICH groups

Nonnegative scalar integer

int8
NMappingUnits

Number of PHICH mapping units

Nonnegative scalar integer

int8
NSequences

Number of orthogonal sequences in each PHICH group

Nonnegative scalar integer

int8
PHICHDuration

PHICH duration

Nonnegative scalar integer

int8

The control region of a subframe can contain up to NPHICH separate PHICHs with each carrying a single hybrid ARQ ACK or NACK. Multiple PHICHs can be mapped to the same set of resource elements through PHICH groups. Each PHICH in a group is carried on one of NSequences orthogonal sequences. For mapping to resources, the groups are combined into mapping units where each unit spans three resource element groups. Thus, NREG is 3×NMappingUnits and NRE is 4×3×NMappingUnits. The Ng parameter controls the number of groups available for a given bandwidth.
