nrWavegenPDCCHConfig

PDCCH configuration parameters for 5G waveform generation

Description

The nrWavegenPDCCHConfig object sets physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) configuration parameters, as defined in TS 38.211 Section 7.3.2 [1] and TS 38.213 Section 10 [2]. Use this object to set the PDCCH property of the nrDLCarrierConfig object when configuring 5G downlink waveform generation.

Creation

Description

pdcch = nrWavegenPDCCHConfig creates a default PDCCH configuration object for 5G waveform generation.

example

pdcch = nrWavegenPDCCHConfig(Name,Value) specifies properties using one or more name-value pair arguments. Enclose each property name in quotes. For example, 'AggregationLevel',2 configures the PDCCH with the specified aggregation level.

Properties

expand all

Enable PDCCH in 5G waveform generation, specified as one of these values.

  • 1 — Enable PDCCH.

  • 0 — Disable PDCCH.

Data Types: double | logical

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

Data Types: char | string

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

Data Types: double

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

Data Types: double

ID of the search space set containing the configured PDCCH, specified as a nonnegative integer. Use this property to associate this PDCCH configuration with one of the search space set configurations specified by the SearchSpaces property of the nrDLCarrierConfig object.

Data Types: double

PDCCH aggregation level, specified as 1, 2, 4, 8, or 16.

Data Types: double

Candidate used for the PDCCH instance, specified as an integer from 1 to 8. The value of this property is an index from the set of candidates specified for the aggregation level by the NumCandidates property of the search space specified by the SearchSpaceID property.

Data Types: double

Slot allocation in a PDCCH period, specified as a nonnegative integer or row vector of nonnegative integers. This property specifies the slot positions of the PDCCH by using 0-based indexing and values smaller than the value of the Period property. This slot allocation must be within the slot allocation of the search space specified by the SearchSpaceID property.

Data Types: double

PDCCH allocation period in slots, specified as a nonnegative integer.

Data Types: double

Enable downlink control information (DCI) encoding, specified as one of these values.

  • 1 — Enable DCI encoding.

  • 0 — Disable DCI encoding.

Data Types: double | logical

Length of DCI in bits, specified as an integer from 0 to 140.

Dependencies

To enable this property, set the Coding property to 1.

Data Types: double

Source of DCI contents, specified as one of these options:

  • 'PN9-ITU', 'PN9', 'PN11', 'PN15', or 'PN23'

  • Two-element cell array consisting of one of the character vectors from the previous list and a random numeric seed (for example, {'PN9',7})

  • Binary vector

If you do not specify a random seed, all shift registers are initialized with an active state.

Data Types: double | cell | string | char

Radio network temporary identifier of the user equipment (UE), specified as an integer from 0 to 65,535. When you set this property to a value greater than 65,519, the object infers this property value to be 0.

Data Types: double

PDCCH demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) scrambling identity, specified as an integer from 0 to 65,535 if the higher layer parameter pdcch-DMRS-ScramblingID is configured or as [] if pdcch-DMRS-ScramblingID is not configured. When you specify this property as [], the object sets the PDCCH DM-RS scrambling identity to the physical layer cell identity specified by the NCellID property of the carrier.

Data Types: double

Power scaling of the PDCCH DM-RS in dB, specified as a real scalar. Use this property to scale the power of the PDCCH DM-RS in the generated 5G waveform. This scaling is additional to the PDCCH-wide power scaling specified by the Power property.

Data Types: double
