Broadcast channel decoding
[trblk,cellrefp] = lteBCHDecode(enb,softbits)
trblk, of the decoded information bits
cellrefp is the number of cell-specific
reference signal antenna ports detected in the CRC mask for given
softbits, and the structure,
This function performs the inverse of the Broadcast Channel (BCH)
processing described in TS 36.212 , Section 5.3.1.
Perform BCH coding of one transport block, and BCH decoding of part (one quarter) of the encoded block. In a practical system, this approach would be used to attempt BCH decoding on the one quarter part of the encoded block that is transmitted in the first subframe of each frame.
Create cell-wide configuration structure, initialized to RMC R.4. Perform BCH coding of one transport block.
enb = lteRMCDL('R.4'); bchCoded = lteBCH(enb,ones(24,1));
Perform BCH decoding of one quarter of the transport block.
out = bchCoded(1:length(bchCoded)/4); [bchDecoded,cellRefP] = lteBCHDecode(enb,out); bchDecoded(1:10)
ans = 10x1 int8 column vector 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
enb— eNodeB cell-wide settings
eNodeB cell-wide settings, specified as a structure containing these parameter fields.
|Parameter Field||Required or Optional||Values||Description|
Cyclic prefix length
softbits— Soft bits to decode
Soft bits to decode, specified as a numeric vector. This vector can have any length.
The transport block size, 24, is relatively small when compared
to the number of coded bits sent in the BCH transmission, 1920 or
1728. For this reason, the rate matching internal to the BCH coding
results in many repetitions of the coded block. This decoder allows
the input argument
softbits to be of any length
because, successful decoding of coded BCH blocks is often possible
using a fraction of the full coded block length.
trblk— Decoded information bits
Decoded information bits, returned as a 24-by-1 integer column vector.
cellrefp— Number of cell-specific reference signal (CRS) antenna ports
Number of cell-specific reference signal (CRS) antenna ports detected, returned as a nonnegative scalar integer. Possible values are 0, 1, 2, and 4. If the value is 0, a CRC error has been detected.
