lteRMCUL

Uplink reference measurement channel or FRC configuration

Syntax

  • rmccfgout = lteRMCUL(rc,duplexmode,totsubframes)
  • rmccfgout = lteRMCUL(rmccfg)
    example

Description

rmccfgout = lteRMCUL(rc,duplexmode,totsubframes) returns a configuration structure for the reference channel defined by rc using a channel-specific default configuration. duplexmode and totsubframes are optional input parameters which define the duplexing mode and total number of subframes to be generated.

Use rmccfgout to generate a waveform with the fixed reference channel (FRC) generator tool, lteRMCULTool. The field names and default values of FRCs are in accordance with TS 36.104 [1], Annex A.

example

rmccfgout = lteRMCUL(rmccfg) returns a fully configured structure for the reference channel partially, or wholly, defined by the input structure, rmccfg. Any parameters missing at the input will be initialized based on the rc field, if present in rmccfg, or the reference channel 'A1-1' otherwise. The values of RVSeq, TrBlkSizes, and CodedTrBlkSizes are set according to the modulation scheme and the code rate for the reference channel.

rmccfg can include the field SRS to enable SRS related configuration parameters.
