nrWavegenCSIRSConfig

CSI-RS configuration parameters for 5G waveform generation

Description

The nrWavegenCSIRSConfig object sets channel state information reference signal (CSI-RS) configuration parameters for one or more zero-power (ZP) or non-zero-power (NZP) CSI-RS resources, as defined in TS 38.211 Section 7.4.1.5 [1]. Use this object to set the CSIRS property of the nrDLCarrierConfig object when configuring 5G downlink waveform generation.

By default, the object defines an NZP-CSI-RS resource configured for two antenna ports with a CDM type of FD-CDM2 and density 1, corresponding to CSI-RS resource defined in row 3 of TS 38.211 Table 7.4.1.5.3-1.

Creation

Description

example

csirs = nrWavegenCSIRSConfig creates a default CSI-RS configuration object for 5G waveform generation.

csirs = nrWavegenCSIRSConfig(Name,Value) sets propertiesproperties using one or more name-value pair arguments. Enclose each property name in quotes. For example, 'CSIRSType',{'zp','nzp','zp'} specifies three CSI-RS resources.

Properties

expand all

Enable CSI-RS in 5G waveform generation, specified as one of these values.

  • 0 — Disable CSI-RS.

  • 1 — Enable CSI-RS.

Data Types: double | logical

Name of CSI-RS configuration, specified as a character array or string scalar. Use this property to set a mnemonic description to the CSI-RS configuration.

Data Types: char | string

Power scaling of CSI-RS in dB, specified as a real scalar. Use this property to scale the power of the CSI-RS in the generated 5G waveform.

Data Types: double

ID of bandwidth part (BWP), containing the configured CSI-RS, specified as a nonnegative integer. Use this property to associate this CSI-RS configuration with one of the BWP configurations specified by the BandwidthParts property of the nrDLCarrierConfig object.

Data Types: double

Type of one or more CSI-RS resource configurations, specified as one of these options.

  • 'nzp' — Use this option to specify a single NZP-CSI-RS resource.

  • 'zp' — Use this option to specify a single ZP-CSI-RS resource.

  • Cell array with elements 'nzp' or 'zp' — Use this option to specify multiple CSI-RS resources.

Alternatively, you can specify this property by using "nzp" and "zp" as string scalars or as elements of a string array.

The number of CSI-RS resource configurations is equal to the number of values provided for this property.

Data Types: cell | string | char

Slot periodicity and offset of the CSI-RS resource, specified as one of these options.

For Single CSI-RS Resource

  • 'on' — Use this option to indicate that the resource is present in all slots.

  • 'off' — Use this option to indicate that the resource is absent in all slots.

  • Vector of integers of the form [Tcsi-rs Toffset] — Use this option to specify slot periodicity Tcsi-rs and offset Toffset for scheduling the CSI-RS resource in specific slots.

    Tcsi-rs is 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 32, 40, 64, 80, 160, 320, or 640. For a particular value of Tcsi-rs, the value of Toffset is in the range from 0 to Tcsi-rs–1.

For Multiple CSI-RS Resources

  • Cell array with elements 'on', 'off', or [Tcsi-rs Toffset] — The number of elements in the cell array must be one or equal the number of CSI-RS resources specified by the CSIRSType property. When the cell array contains only one element, the specified value applies to all CSI-RS resources.

Alternatively, you can specify this property by using "on" and "off" as string scalars or as elements of a string array.

This property is the higher-layer parameter CSI-ResourcePeriodicityAndOffset or slotConfig defined in the CSI-RS-CellMobility IE.

Data Types: cell | string | char | double

Row number of CSI-RS resource, as defined in TS 38.211 Table 7.4.1.5.3-1, specified as one of these options.

For Single CSI-RS Resource

  • Integer from 1 to 18

For Multiple CSI-RS Resources

  • Vector of integers in the range from 1 to 18 — The number of vector elements must equal the number of CSI-RS resources specified by the CSIRSType property.

Data Types: double

Frequency density of the CSI-RS resource, as defined in TS 38.211 Table 7.4.1.5.3-1, specified as one of these options.

For Single CSI-RS Resource

  • 'one' — This option corresponds to ρ = 1 from the specified table.

  • 'three' — This option corresponds to ρ = 3 from the specified table.

  • 'dot5even' — This option corresponds to ρ = 0.5 from the specified table with even resource block (RB) allocation regarding the common resource block 0 (CRB 0).

  • 'dot5odd' — This option corresponds to ρ = 0.5 from the specified table with odd RB allocation regarding CRB 0.

For Multiple CSI-RS Resources

  • Cell array of the character vectors 'one', 'three', 'dot5even', or 'dot5odd' — The number of elements in the cell array must equal the number of CSI-RS resources specified by the CSIRSType property.

Alternatively, you can specify this property by using "one", "three", "dot5even", and "dot5odd" as string scalars or as elements of a string array.

The value of ρ is the higher-layer parameter density defined in the CSI-RS-ResourceMapping IE or the CSI-RS-CellMobility IE.

Data Types: cell | string | char

Time-domain locations of the CSI-RS resource (l0 and l1 values in the TS 38.211 Table 7.4.1.5.3-1), specified as one of these options.

For Single CSI-RS Resource

  • Integer from 0 to 13 — This option corresponds to the l0 value in the specified table.

  • Vector of integers of the form [l0 l1] or [l0; l1], where l0 and l1 are the corresponding l0 and l1 values in the specified table — The l1 values are required only in table rows 13, 14, 16, and 17. l0 is an integer from 0 to 13, and l1 is an integer from 2 to 12.

For Multiple CSI-RS Resources

  • Cell array of l0 values or vectors of the form [l0 l1] or [l0; l1] — The number of elements in the cell array must equal the number of CSI-RS resources specified by the CSIRSType property.

The values of l0 and l1 are the higher-layer parameters firstOFDMSymbolInTimeDomain and firstOFDMSymbolInTimeDomain2, respectively, in the CSI-RS-ResourceMapping IE or CSI-RS-Resource-Mobility IE.

Data Types: double

Frequency-domain locations of the CSI-RS resource (ki values in the TS 38.211 Table 7.4.1.5.3-1), specified as one of these options.

For Single CSI-RS Resource

  • Numeric vector with elements 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 — The vector elements correspond to the possible lengths of subcarrier locations.

For Multiple CSI-RS Resources

  • Cell array of numeric vectors with elements 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 — The number of elements in the cell array must equal the number of CSI-RS resources specified by the CSIRSType property.

Data Types: double

CSI-RS resource bandwidth, in terms of the number of allocated RBs, specified as one of these options.

For Single CSI-RS Resource

  • Integer from 1 to 275

For Multiple CSI-RS Resources

  • Vector of integers in the range from 1 to 275 — The number of vector elements must equal to one or the number of CSI-RS resources specified by the CSIRSType property. When the vector contains only one element, the specified value applies to all CSI-RS resources.

This property is the higher-layer parameter nrOfRBs in FrequencyOccupation IE or nrOfPRBs in CSI-RS-ResourceConfigMobility IE.

Data Types: double

Note

Specify this property relative to the carrier start, which contains the BWP specified by the BandwidthPartID property.

Data Types: double

Scrambling identity, specified as one of these options.

For Single CSI-RS Resource

  • Integer from 0 to 1023

For Multiple CSI-RS Resources

  • Vector of integers in the range from 0 to 1023 — The number of vector elements must be one or equal the number of CSI-RS resources specified by the CSIRSType property. When the vector contains only one element, the specified value applies to all CSI-RS resources.

This property is the higher-layer parameter scramblingID in NZP-CSI-RS-Resource IE or sequenceGenerationConfig in CSI-RS-ResourceConfigMobility IE.

When the CSIRSType property defines only ZP resources, this property is hidden.
