ltePSBCHPRBS

PSBCH pseudorandom binary scrambling sequence

Description

example

[seq,cinit] = ltePSBCHPRBS(ue,n) returns a column vector containing the first n outputs of the PSBCH pseudorandom binary scrambling sequence (PRBS) for the specified UE settings structure. It also returns an initialization value cinit for the PRBS generator.

The scrambling sequence generated should be applied to the coded PSBCH data carried by the associated subframe. The PRBS generator is initialized with cinit = ue.NSLID.

example

[seq,cinit] = ltePSBCHPRBS(ue,n,mapping) specifies the format of the returned sequence, seq, through the mapping input.

[subseq,cinit] = ltePSBCHPRBS(ue,pn) returns a subsequence of a full PRBS sequence, specified by pn.

[subseq,cinit] = ltePSBCHPRBS(ue,pn,mapping) specifies the format of the returned subsequence, subseq, through the mapping input.

Scramble a PSBCH codeword by generating the PSBCH pseudorandom binary sequence (PRBS) and applying an exclusive OR operation on the two sequences.

Create a UE configuration structure and SL-BCH codeword. Generate the required length of the PRBS and scramble the PSBCH codeword with the PRBS sequence using xor.

ue = struct('NSLID',2);
codeword = lteSLBCH(ue,ones(40,1));
psbchPrbs = ltePSBCHPRBS(ue,length(codeword));
scrambled = xor(psbchPrbs,codeword);

Descramble a received PSBCH codeword.

Scramble PSBCH Codeword

  • Create a UE configuration structure and SL-BCH codeword.

  • Generate the required length of the PRBS and scramble the PSBCH codeword with the PRBS sequence using xor.

  • Modulate the logical scrambled data.

ue = struct('NSLID',2);
codeword = lteSLBCH(ue,ones(40,1));

psbchPrbs = ltePSBCHPRBS(ue,length(codeword));
scrambled = xor(psbchPrbs,codeword);

txsym = lteSymbolModulate(scrambled,'QPSK');

Descramble Recovered Codeword

  • Add noise to transmitted symbols and demodulate received soft data.

  • Generate the PSBCH PRBS in signed form.

  • Descramble a vector of noisy demodulated symbols representing a sequence of soft bits. To do so, perform a pointwise multiplication between the PRBS sequence and the recovered data.

  • Compare the transmitted codeword to the recovered codeword.

rxsym = awgn(double(txsym),30,'measured');
softdata = lteSymbolDemodulate(rxsym,'QPSK');

scramblingSeq = ltePSBCHPRBS(ue,length(softdata),'signed');

descrambled = softdata.*scramblingSeq;

isequal(codeword,descrambled > 0)
ans = logical
   1

The transmitted codeword matches the hard decision on the descrambled data.

Input Arguments

User equipment settings, specified as a parameter structure containing this field:

Physical layer sidelink synchronization identity, specified as an integer from 0 to 355. (NIDSL)

Data Types: double

Data Types: struct

Number of elements in returned sequence, seq, specified as a nonnegative integer.

Data Types: double

Range of elements in returned subsequence, subseq, specified as a row vector of [p n]. The subsequence returns n values of the PRBS generator, starting at position p (0-based).

Data Types: double

Output sequence formatting, specified as 'binary' or 'signed'.

  • 'binary' maps true to 1 and false to 0.

  • 'signed' maps true to –1 and false to 1.

Data Types: char | string

Output Arguments

collapse all

PSBCH pseudorandom scrambling sequence, returned as a logical column vector or a numeric column vector. seq contains the first n outputs of the physical sidelink broadcast channel (PSBCH) scrambling sequence. If you set mapping to 'signed', the output data type is double. Otherwise, the output data type is logical.

Data Types: logical | double

PSBCH pseudorandom scrambling subsequence, returned as a logical column vector or a numeric column vector. subseq contains the values of the PRBS generator specified by pn. If you set mapping to 'signed', the output data type is double. Otherwise, the output data type is logical.

Data Types: logical | double

Initialization value for PRBS generator, returned as a numeric scalar.

Data Types: uint32
