Demodulate CPMmodulated data
Communications Toolbox / Modulation / Digital Baseband Modulation / CPM
The CPM Demodulator Baseband block demodulates a signal that was modulated using continuous phase modulation (CPM).
CPM is a modulation method with memory. The block processing includes a correlator followed by a maximumlikelihood sequence detector (MLSD) that searches the paths through the state trellis for the minimum Euclidean distance path. The block uses the Viterbi algorithm to perform MLSD.
For more information about this demodulation and the filtering applied, see CPM Demodulation and Pulse Shape Filtering.

The CPM demodulation processing consists of a correlator followed by a maximumlikelihood sequence detector (MLSD) that searches the paths through the state trellis for the minimum Euclidean distance path. When the modulation index is rational (h = m/p), there are a finite number of phase states in the symbol. The block uses the Viterbi algorithm to perform MLSD.
{h_{i}} represents a sequence of modulation indices that moves cyclically through a set of indices {h_{0}, h_{1}, h_{2}, …,h_{H1}}.
h_{i} = m_{i}/p_{i} represents the modulation index in proper rational form.
m_{i} represents the numerator of the modulation index.
p_{i} represents the denominator of the modulation index.
m_{i} and p_{i} are relatively prime positive numbers.
The least common multiple (LCM) of {p_{0}, p_{1}, p_{2}, …,p_{H1}} is denoted as p.
h_{i }= m'_{i} / p
{h_{i}} determines the number of phase states:
and affects the number of trellis states:
numStates = numPhaseStates*M^{(L1)}
L represents the Pulse length.
M represents the Mary number.
The input to the demodulator is a baseband representation of the modulated signal:
where:
{α_{i}} represents a sequence of Mary data symbols selected from the alphabet ±1, ±3, ±(M–1).
M must have the form 2^{K} for some positive integer K, where M is the modulation order and specifies the size of the symbol alphabet.
{h_{i}} represents a sequence of modulation indices and h_{i} moves cyclically through a set of indices {h_{0}, h_{1}, h_{2}, ..., h_{H1}}. When H=1, there is only one modulation index, h_{0}, which is denoted as h.
Continuous phase modulation uses pulse shaping to smooth the phase transitions of the modulated signal. The function q(t) is the phase response obtained from the frequency pulse, g(t), through this relation:
The specified frequency pulse shape corresponds to these pulse shape expressions, g(t).

L_{main} is the main lobe pulse duration in symbol intervals.

B_{b}is the product of the bandwidth and the Gaussian pulse.
The duration of the pulse, LT, is the pulse length in symbol intervals. As defined by the expressions, the Spectral Raised Cosine

When the Output type parameter is set to
Integer
:
The block produces odd integers between –(M–1) and M–1. The modulation order, M, is specified by the Mary number parameter.
The Output datatype parameter cannot be set to
boolean
.
When the Output type parameter is set to
Bit
:
The block produces groupings of K bits. Each grouping is called a binary word.
The Output datatype can only be double
or boolean
.
In binary output mode, the block processing follows this procedure:
Maps each input symbol to an intermediate value, as in the integer output mode.
Maps the odd integer k to the nonnegative integer (k+M–1)/2.
Maps each nonnegative integer to a binary word, using
Binary
or Gray
mapping, as
specified by the Symbol set ordering parameter.
In singlerate processing mode, the input and output signals have the same port sample time. The block implicitly implements the rate change by making a size change at the output when compared to the input. The input width must be an integer multiple of the Samples per symbol parameter value, and the input can be a column vector.
When you set Output type to Bit
, the
output width is K times the number of input symbols.
When you set Output type to Integer
, the
output width is the number of input symbols.
In multirate processing mode, the input and output signals have different port sample times. The input must be a scalar. The output symbol time is the product of the input sample time and the Samples per symbol parameter value.
When you set Output type to Bit
, the
output width equals the number of bits per symbol.
When you set Output type to Integer
, the
output is a scalar.
The Traceback depth parameter, D, is the number of trellis branches used to construct each traceback path. D influences the output delay, which is the number of zero symbols that precede the first meaningful demodulated value in the output.
When the Rate options parameter is set to Allow
multirate processing
, and the model uses a variablestep solver or a fixedstep
solver with the Tasking Mode parameter set to
SingleTasking
, then the delay vector consists of
D+1 zerovalue symbols.
When the Rate options parameter is set to Enforce
singlerate processing
, the delay vector consists of D
zerovalue symbols.
The optimal Traceback depth parameter value depends on minimum squared Euclidean distance calculations. Alternatively, a typical value, dependent on the number of states, can be chosen using the fivetimestheconstraintlength rule, which corresponds to .
For a binary raised cosine pulse shape with a pulse length of 3 and h=2/3, applying this rule gives a result that is close to the optimum value of 20.
