MUSIC 2D spatial spectrum estimator

**Library:**Phased Array System Toolbox / Direction of Arrival

The MUSIC Spectrum block uses the MUltiple SIgnal Classification (MUSIC) algorithm to estimate the spatial spectrum of incoming narrowband signals. The block optionally calculates the direction of arrival of a specified number of signals by finding the peaks of the spectrum.

`Port 1`

— Received signalReceived signal, specified as an *M*-by-*N* complex-valued
matrix. The quantity *M* is the length of the signal,
the number of sample values contained in the signal. The quantity *N* is
the number of sensor elements in the array.

The size of the first dimension of this input matrix can vary to simulate a changing signal length, such as a pulse waveform with variable pulse repetition frequency.

**Data Types: **`double`

**Complex Number Support: **Yes

`Y`

— MUSIC 2-D spatial spectrumnon-negative, real-valued column vector

2-D MUSIC spatial spectrum, returned as a non-negative, real-valued *K*-length
column vector representing the magnitude of the estimated MUSIC spatial
spectrum. Each entry corresponds to an angle specified by the **Azimuth
scan angles (deg)** and **Elevation scan angles (deg)** parameters.

**Data Types: **`double`

`Ang`

— Directions of arrivalnon-negative, real-valued column vector

Directions of arrival of the signals, returned as a real-valued
2-by-*L* matrix. *L* is the number
of signals specified by the **Number of signals** parameter.
The direction of arrival angle is defined by the azimuth and elevation
angles of the source with respect to the array local coordinate system.
The first row of the matrix contains the azimuth angles and the second
row contains the elevation angles. Angle units are in degrees.

(default) | `Code Generation`

Block simulation, specified as `Interpreted Execution`

or ```

Generation
```

. If you want your block to use the MATLAB^{®} interpreter,
choose `Interpreted Execution`

. If you want
your block to run as compiled code, choose `Code Generation`

.
Compiled code requires time to compile but usually runs faster.

Interpreted execution is useful when you are developing and
tuning a model. The block runs the underlying System
object™ in MATLAB.
You can change and execute your model quickly. When you are satisfied
with your results, you can then run the block using ```
Code
Generation
```

. Long simulations run faster than in interpreted
execution. You can run repeated executions without recompiling. However,
if you change any block parameters, then the block automatically recompiles
before execution.

When setting this parameter, you must take into account the
overall model simulation mode. The table shows how the **Simulate
using** parameter interacts with the overall simulation mode.

When the Simulink^{®} model is in `Accelerator`

mode,
the block mode specified using **Simulate using** overrides
the simulation mode.
