(To be removed) Construct flat Doppler spectrum object
doppler.flat will be removed in a future release. Use
dop = doppler.flat
dop = doppler.flat creates a flat Doppler spectrum
object that is to be used for the
DopplerSpectrum property of a channel
object (created with either the
rayleighchan or the
ricianchan function). The
maximum Doppler shift of the flat Doppler spectrum object is specified by the
MaxDopplerShift property of the channel object.
The flat Doppler spectrum object contains only one property,
SpectrumType, which is read-only and has a fixed value of
In a 3-D isotropic scattering environment, where the angles of arrival are uniformly distributed in the azimuth and elevation planes, the Doppler spectrum is found theoretically to be flat . A flat Doppler spectrum is also specified in some cases of the ANSI J-STD-008 reference channel models for PCS, for both outdoor (pedestrian) and indoor (commercial)  applications.
The normalized flat Doppler power spectrum is given analytically by:
where is the maximum Doppler frequency.
%% Create a Rayleigh Channel with Flat Doppler Spectrum % This example shows how to create a Rayleigh channel object with a flat Doppler spectrum. %% % Set the sample time and maximum Doppler shift. ts = 1e-6; % sec fd = 50; % Hz % Create the Rayleigh channel object. chan = rayleighchan(ts,fd); % Observe that the default Doppler spectrum property, SpectrumType, is 'Jakes'. chan.DopplerSpectrum
