lteNPBCHIndices

Generate NPBCH RE indices

Description

example

[ind,info] = lteNPBCHIndices(enb) generates ind, a matrix containing narrowband physical broadcast channel (NPBCH) resource element (RE) indices, and info, a structure containing information related to the indices. You can use ind to index elements of the subframe resource grid directly for all antenna ports in accordance with section 10.2.4.4 of [1]. Initialize this function with cell-wide settings enb.

example

[ind,info] = lteNPBCHIndices(enb,opts) formats the returned indices using options specified by opts.

Generate the NPBCH RE Indices mapping for one antenna and display related information.

Create the eNodeB structure cell-wide settings for one antenna.

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

Generate the NPBCH RE Indices column vector. Display the first 10 indices.

[ind,info]=lteNPBCHIndices(enb);
ind(1:10)
ans = 10×1

Generate NPBCH RE 0-based Indices in linear index form for two antennas.

Create eNodeB structure cell-wide settings for two antennas.

enb.NNCellID = 10;
enb.NBRefP = 2;

Generate the 0-based NPBCH RE indices in linear index form. The indices matrix has two columns, one for each antenna port. Display the first 10 indices.

[ind,info] = lteNPBCHIndices(enb,{'0based', 'ind'});
ind(1:10,:)

Parameter FieldRequired or OptionalValuesDescriptionData Types
NNCellIDRequired

Nonnegative integer

NB-IoT physical layer cell identity

double
NBRefPRequired

1, 2

Number of narrowband reference signal antenna ports

double
NSubframeOptional

0 (default),

nonnegative integer

Subframe numberdouble
NFrameOptional

0 (default),

nonnegative integer

Frame number

double

Data Types: struct

Output format and index base of generated indices, specified as one of these forms.

  • 'format base'

  • "format base"

  • {'format','base'}

  • ["format","base"]

Where format and base are defined in this table.

OptionValuesDescription
format'ind' (default), 'sub'

Output format of generated indices

To return the indices as a column vector, specify this option as 'ind'.

To return the indices as an NRE-by-3 matrix, where NRE is the number of REs, specify this option as 'sub'. Each row of the matrix contains the subcarrier, symbol, and antenna port as its first, second, and third element, respectively.

base'1based' (default), '0based'

Index base

To generate indices whose first value is 1, specify this option as '1based'. To generate indices whose first value is 0, specify this option as '0based'.

Example: 'ind 0based', "ind 0based", {'ind','0based'}, and ["ind","0based"] specify the same output options.

Data Types: char | string | cell

Output Arguments

collapse all

NPBCH RE indices, returned as a real-valued matrix, depending on the indexing style specified in opts:

  • If you specify linear indexing (default), then ind is an 100-by-NBRefP matrix.

  • If you specify subscript row style indexing, then ind is an NRE-by-3 matrix, where NRE is the number of resource elements per subframe.

Data Types: double

Information related to NPBCH indices, returned as a structure containing these fields.

Parameter FieldValuesDescriptionData Types
G1600

Number of coded and rate-matched NPBCH data bits for a codeword.

double
Gd800

Number of coded and rate-matched NPBCH data symbols for each of the 8 sub blocks.

double

Data Types: struct
