Generate eye diagram

`eyediagram(x,n) `

eyediagram(x,n,period)

eyediagram(x,n,period,offset)

eyediagram(x,n,period,offset,plotstring)

eyediagram(x,n,period,offset,plotstring,h)

h = eyediagram(...)

`eyediagram(x,n) `

creates
an eye diagram for the signal `x`

, plotting `n`

samples
in each trace. `n`

must be an integer greater than
1. The labels on the horizontal axis of the diagram range between
-1/2 and 1/2. The function assumes that the first value of the signal,
and every `n`

th value thereafter, occur at integer
times. The interpretation of `x`

and the number of
plots depend on the shape and complexity of `x`

:

If

`x`

is a real two-column matrix,`eyediagram`

interprets the first column as in-phase components and the second column as quadrature components. The two components appear in different subplots of a single figure window.If

`x`

is a complex vector,`eyediagram`

interprets the real part as in-phase components and the imaginary part as quadrature components. The two components appear in different subplots of a single figure window.If x is a real vector,

`eyediagram`

interprets it as a real signal. The figure window contains a single plot.

`eyediagram(x,n,period)`

is
the same as the syntax above, except that the labels on the horizontal
axis range between -`period/2`

and `period/2`

.

`eyediagram(x,n,period,offset)`

is
the same as the syntax above, except that the function assumes that
the (`offset+1`

)st value of the signal, and every `n`

th
value thereafter, occur at times that are integer multiples of `period`

.
The variable `offset`

must be a nonnegative integer
between 0 and `n-1`

.

`eyediagram(x,n,period,offset,plotstring)`

is
the same as the syntax above, except that `plotstring`

determines
the plotting symbol, line type, and color for the plot. `plotstring`

is
a character vector whose format and meaning are the same as in the `plot`

function. The default value is `'b-'`

,
which produces a blue solid line.

`eyediagram(x,n,period,offset,plotstring,h)`

is
the same as the syntax above, except that the eye diagram is in the
figure whose handle is `h`

, rather than in a new
figure. `h`

must be a handle to a figure that `eyediagram`

previously
generated.

You cannot use `hold on`

to plot multiple signals
in the same figure.

`h = eyediagram(...)`

is
the same as the earlier syntaxes, except that `h`

is
the handle to the figure that contains the eye diagram.
