Transmit-Receive Chain

WLAN System Toolbox™ functionality includes elements of a standard transmitter–channel–receiver processing chain.

  • Transmitter functions enable simulation of the various IEEE® 802.11™ [1] [2] formats. The simulated waveform includes preamble and data fields of the PPDU. You can use this waveform in link-level simulations. You can also use it as a test signal for test devices and equipment.

  • Channel functions model various types of AWGN, fading, or moving channel environmental effects.

  • Receiver functions recover the transmitted signal.

Transmit Processing Chain

WLAN System Toolbox functions enable you to generate waveforms for a complete PPDU or for the individual fields of VHT, HT-mixed, and non-HT format PPDUs.

VHT Data Transmit Processing Chain

As described in IEEE 802.11ac™-2013 [3], Section 22 specifies the PHY entity for a very high throughput (VHT) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. A VHT STA must be capable of transmitting and receiving HT-PHY and non-HT-PHY-compliant PPDUs. Specifically, the VHT PHY is based on the HT PHY defined in Section 20, which in turn is based on the OFDM PHY defined in Section 18. The VHT PHY extends the maximum number of space-time streams supported to eight and provides support for downlink multi-user (MU) transmissions. A downlink MU transmission supports up to four users with up to four space-time streams per user, with the total number of space-time streams not exceeding eight.

IEEE Std 802.11ac-2013 [3], Section 22 defines requirements for physical layer processing associated with each PPDU field for the VHT format.

HT Data Transmit Processing Chain

IEEE 802.11-2012 [2], Section 20 defines requirements for physical layer processing associated with each PPDU field for the HT-mixed format.

Non-HT Data Transmit Processing Chain

IEEE 802.11-2012 [2], Section 18 defines requirements for physical layer processing associated with each PPDU field for the OFDM modulation scheme. IEEE 802.11-2012 [2], Section 17, and Section 19 define requirements for physical layer processing associated with each PPDU field for the DSSS modulation scheme.

Receiver Processing Chain

WLAN System Toolbox functions enable you to recover transmitted VHT, HT-mixed, and non-HT format PPDUs. The receive processing chain includes synchronization, OFDM demodulation, channel estimation, equalization, and signal and data recovery.
