    Modulates a sequence of integers into a series of Quadrature Amplitude Modulated (QAM) symbols.

    Syntax

    y = qam(x, m)
    y = qam(x, m, phi)
    y = qam(x, m, phi, type)
    Legacy name: qammod

    Inputs

    x

    Sequence of integers to modulate. x is a I32 array of any dimension in the range [0, m-1].

    m

    M-ary QAM modulation. m should be a square of a power of 2.

    phi

    Initial phase in radians. The default phi is 0.

    type

    Method to map the integers to modulated symbols. type is a string that accepts the following values:

    'Bin' (default)

    Uses binary mapping to the modulated symbols.

    'Gray'

    Uses Gray-coded mapping to the modulated symbols.

    Outputs

    y

    Modulated symbols. y is a complex, double-precision or floating-point number of the same size as x.
