umtsUplinkReferenceChannels

UMTS uplink measurement channel definition

Syntax

config = umtsUplinkReferenceChannels(rc)

Description

example

config = umtsUplinkReferenceChannels(rc) returns a structure containing the configuration parameters for the UMTS uplink reference channel defined by rc. The output structure, config, contains the configuration parameters required by umtsUplinkWaveformGenerator to generate an uplink reference channel waveform. umtsUplinkReferenceChannels uses, rc, to initialize a configuration data structure that is compliant with one of the reference channels defined in the following 3GPP standards:

  • Uplink RMC configurations are defined in TS 25.101, Annex A.2 [1].

  • Uplink E-DPDCH FRC configurations are as defined in TS 25.141, Annex 10 [2].

Examples

Initialize a 'RMC12.2kbps' reference channel.

Generate the configuration structure, config.

rc = 'RMC12.2kbps';
config = umtsUplinkReferenceChannels(rc);

The output from umtsUplinkReferenceChannels provides the input required to generate the desired UMTS waveform corresponding to these settings.

Examine the DPDCH field in config. This field uses a nested structure to define this physical channel for the 'RMC12.2kbps' reference channel.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Reference channel configuration, specified as a character vector or string scalar. rc identifies which RMC or E-DPDCH FRC to configure. Values for rc when specified as a character vector include (for string scalar use double quotes):

Parameter FieldRequired or OptionalValuesDescription
rcRequired

Reference measurement channels:

'RMC12.2kbps', 'RMC64kbps', 'RMC144kbps', 'RMC384kbps'

Reference channel identifying the W-CDMA uplink RMC configuration set-up as defined in TS 25.101, Annex A.2 [1].

E-DPDCH Fixed Reference Channels:

'FRC1', 'FRC2', 'FRC3', 'FRC4', 'FRC5', 'FRC6', 'FRC7', 'FRC8'

Reference channel identifying the E-DPDCH FRC configuration as defined in TS 25.141, Annex A.10 [2].

Note

Additional standards-based reference channels can be configured by executing lteUplinkReferenceChannels and then adjusting parameters to match configurations defined in TS 25.141 [2]. For example:

  • To generate the HS-DPCCH RMC, use 'RMC12.2kbps' and set HSDPCCH.Enable = 'On'.

  • To generate the 12.2 kbps RMC defined in TS 25.141 [2], use 'RMC12.2kbps'. Using this value the function initializes config to generate the TS 25.101 [1] 12.2 kbps RMC). After config is generated, adjust the DPDCH and DPCCH parameters to align with the settings in TS 25.141 [2].
