nrPDSCHDMRS

Generate PDSCH DM-RS symbols

Description

example

sym = nrPDSCHDMRS(carrier,pdsch) returns a matrix containing demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) symbols of physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH), as defined in TS 38.211 Section 7.4.1.1.1 [1]. carrier specifies the carrier configuration parameters for a specific OFDM numerology. pdsch specifies the PDSCH configuration parameters.

sym = nrPDSCHDMRS(carrier,pdsch,'OutputDataType',datatype) specifies the data type for the DM-RS symbols.

Examples

Create a carrier configuration object specifying the slot number as 10.

carrier = nrCarrierConfig('NSlot',10);

Create a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) configuration object, pdsch, with physical resource blocks (PRBs) allocated from 0 to 30.

pdsch = nrPDSCHConfig;
pdsch.PRBSet = 0:30;

Create a PDSCH demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) object, dmrs, with specified properties.

dmrs = nrPDSCHDMRSConfig;
dmrs.DMRSConfigurationType = 2;
dmrs.DMRSLength = 2;
dmrs.DMRSAdditionalPosition = 1;
dmrs.DMRSTypeAPosition = 2;
dmrs.DMRSPortSet = 5;
dmrs.NIDNSCID = 10;
dmrs.NSCID = 0;

Assign the PDSCH DM-RS configuration object to DMRS property of PDSCH configuration object.

pdsch.DMRS = dmrs;

Generate PDSCH DM-RS symbols and indices for the specified carrier, PDSCH configuration, and output formatting name-value pair argument.

sym = nrPDSCHDMRS(carrier,pdsch,'OutputDataType','single')
sym = 496x1 single column vector

Display the generated DM-RS symbols on the carrier resource grid.

grid = complex(zeros([carrier.NSizeGrid*12 carrier.SymbolsPerSlot pdsch.NumLayers]));
grid(ind+1) = sym;
imagesc(abs(grid(:,:,1)));
axis xy;
xlabel('OFDM Symbols');
ylabel('Subcarriers');
title('PDSCH DM-RS Resource Elements in the Carrier Resource Grid');

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object with title PDSCH DM-RS Resource Elements in the Carrier Resource Grid contains an object of type image.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Carrier configuration parameters for a specific OFDM numerology, specified as an nrCarrierConfig object. This function uses only these properties of the nrCarrierConfig object.

PDSCH configuration parameters, specified as an nrPDSCHConfig object. This function uses only these properties of the nrPDSCHConfig object.

Data type for the generated DM-RS symbols, specified as 'double' or 'single'.

Data Types: char | string

Output Arguments

collapse all

DM-RS symbols, returned as a complex matrix. The number of columns correspond to the number of antenna ports configured.

Data Types: single | double
Complex Number Support: Yes
