lteNPBCH

Generate NPBCH symbols

Description

example

sym = lteNPBCH(enb,cw) generates sym, a matrix containing the narrowband physical broadcast channel (NPBCH) symbols for cell-wide settings enb. The function generates the symbols by applying NPBCH encoding to and codeword cw, which comprises scrambling, QPSK modulation, layer mapping, and precoding in accordance with section 10.2.4 of [1].

Examples

Generate NPBCH symbols using the master information block (MIB).

Generate the MIB and pass it through broadcast channel (BCH) encoding to obtain the 1600-bit codeword.

mib = randi([0 1],34,1);
cw = lteBCH(mib,1600,1);

Specify the cell-wide settings in the structure enb.

enb.NNCellID = 0;
enb.NBRefP = 1;
enb.NSubframe = 10;

Generate the NPBCH symbols for each of the subframes.

sym = lteNPBCH(enb,cw);
