Physical broadcast channel
a matrix containing the complex symbols of the Physical Broadcast
Channel (PBCH) for cell-wide settings structure,
sym = ltePBCH(
cw. The function performs all physical
channel processing steps, including the stages of scrambling, QPSK
modulation, layer mapping, and precoding as defined in TS 36.211 , Section 6.6.
The BCH transport channel consumes information bits every 40 ms. The coded transport block is then passed to PBCH for physical channel processing. The PBCH is transmitted in the first subframe of every frame, so four successive frames are required to transmit one transport block. As the scrambling sequence is initialized at the boundary of every 40 ms, this function expects 40 ms worth of data. For example, it expects 1920 bits for normal cyclic prefix, or 1728 bits for extended cyclic prefix. Demultiplex the output of this function into quarter length blocks for transmission on the first subframe in each 10 ms frame.
Generate PBCH Symbols
Generate physical broadcast channel (PBCH) symbols using the master information block (MIB).
Create cell-wide configuration structure initialized to RMC R.0. Generate the MIB. Pass the MIB through broadcast channel (BCH) transport channel coding.
enb = lteRMCDL('R.0'); mib = lteMIB(enb); bchCoded = lteBCH(enb,mib);
Generate and display the PBCH symbols.
pbchSymbols = ltePBCH(enb,bchCoded); pbchSymbols(1:10)
