Decimates the input complex waveform and returns the decimated output complex waveform. Use this node to decimate the matched filtered waveform at the output of MT Matched Filter to recover the symbols corresponding to the ideal symbol timing location.

datatype_icon

input complex waveform

The modulated complex baseband waveform data.

datatype_icon

t0

Trigger (start) time of the Y array.

Default: 0.0

datatype_icon

dt

Time interval between data points in the Y array.

Default: 1.0

datatype_icon

Y

The complex-valued signal-only baseband modulated waveform. The real and imaginary parts of this complex data array correspond to the in-phase (I) and quadrature-phase (Q) data, respectively.

datatype_icon

decimation factor

The extent to which the input complex waveform is decimated. This parameter is ignored on subsequent calls when reset? is set to FALSE.

Tip  

If you are recovering the ideal symbol timing instant, ensure that this input value matches the samples per symbol parameter to MT Matched Filter.

datatype_icon

offset

The starting index of the Y array within the input complex waveform cluster from which decimation is performed. This parameter is ignored on subsequent calls when reset? is set to FALSE. Samples prior to the specified offset are discarded. Use this parameter to specify the first sample containing an ideal symbol timing instant.

Default: 0 (no samples discarded)

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Default: no error

datatype_icon

reset?

A Boolean that determines whether stored state information is cleared at subsequent calls to this node.

TRUE Decimation begins at the starting point specified by offset.
FALSE The specified offset and decimation factor values are used on first call only, and computed on subsequent calls to ensure continuability from one iteration to the next.

Default: TRUE

datatype_icon

output complex waveform

The decimated I/Q baseband waveform sampled at a rate 1/(decimation factor × dt) seconds/sample.

datatype_icon

t0

Trigger (start) time of the Y array.

Default: 0

datatype_icon

dt

Time interval between data values in the Y array.

Default: 1.0

datatype_icon

Y

The complex-valued signal-only baseband modulated waveform. The real and imaginary parts of this complex data array correspond to the in-phase (I) and quadrature-phase (Q) data, respectively.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
