nrRateMatchLDPC

Low-density parity-check (LDPC) rate matching

Description

example

out = nrRateMatchLDPC(in,outlen,rv,mod,nLayers) returns the rate-matched output of length outlen for input data matrix in. The input rv is the redundancy version, mod is the modulation type, and nLayers is the number of transmission layers. The internal buffer used for the soft input has no size limits.

nrRateMatchLDPC includes the stages of bit selection and interleaving defined for LDPC-encoded data and code block concatenation, as specified in TS 38.212 Sections 5.4.2 and 5.5 [1].

out = nrRateMatchLDPC(___,Nref) returns the rate-matched output for a limited soft buffer size Nref, in addition to the input arguments in the previous syntax. Nref is defined in TS 38.212 Section 5.4.2.1 [1].

Examples

Create input data corresponding to two LDPC-encoded code blocks of length 3960.

encoded = ones(3960,2);

Perform LDPC rate matching of the two code blocks to a vector of length 8000. Use single transmission layer with QPSK modulation and zero redundancy version.

rv = 0;                 
mod = 'QPSK';    
nLayers = 1;
outlen = 8000;
ratematched = nrRateMatchLDPC(encoded,outlen,rv,mod,nLayers);
size(ratematched)
ans = 1×2

        8000           1

Create LDPC-encoded input data consisting of integer ramps in separate code blocks. Perform LDPC rate matching of the code blocks to a vector of length 3000. Use single transmission layer with QPSK modulation and zero redundancy version. Plot the locations of the rate-matched output data.

encoded = [0 1000 2000] + (1:66*10)';
rv = 0;           
mod = 'QPSK';    
nLayers = 1; 
outlen = 3000;
out = nrRateMatchLDPC(encoded,outlen,rv,mod,nLayers);
plot(out,'.-')

Input Arguments

collapse all

LDPC-encoded input data, specified as a matrix. Each column of in is a codeword. The number of columns in the input argument in is equal to the number of scheduled code blocks in a transport block. Each column is rate-matched separately, and the results are concatenated in out.

Data Types: double | int8

Length of the rate-matched and concatenated output vector, specified as a positive integer. outlen is the number of coded bits available for transmission in the transport block, as specified in TS 38.212 Section 5.4.2.1 [1].

Data Types: double

Redundancy version, specified as an integer from 0 to 3.

Data Types: double

Modulation scheme, specified as 'pi/2-BPSK', 'QPSK', '16QAM', '64QAM', or '256QAM'.

Data Types: char | string

Number of transmission layers associated with the transport block, specified as an integer from 1 to 4.

Data Types: double

Limited buffer rate matching, specified as a positive integer. Nref is defined in TS 38.212 Section 5.4.2.1.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Rate-matched and concatenated code blocks for a transport block, returned as a vector with length outlen.

Data Types: double | int8
