MT Map MSK Symbols to Bits (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 9, 2017

Maps symbols comprised of MSK frequency deviations to an output bit stream based on a user-specified symbol rate.

Programming Patterns
Use this node in conjunction with MT Matched Filter, MT Align to Ideal Symbols, MT Decimate Oversampled Waveform, and MT Calculate BER to perform waveform analysis on the modulated waveform.

Note  

The mapping of symbols to bits depends on the number of bits per symbol, which equals log 2 ( M ) with M representing the size of the modulation scheme. For example, in a 256-QAM system, 500 QAM symbols are mapped to ( 500 ) × log 2 ( 256 ) = 4000 m e s s a g e b i t s .

symbols

An array of frequency deviations for one-to-one mapping to the output bit stream.

datatype_icon

symbol rate

The symbol rate, in hertz (Hz), of the symbols data.

Note  

For MSK modulation, the frequency deviation is ¼ the symbol rate. For nondifferential MSK, the symbol-to-bit mapping is performed by mapping bit 0 -0.25 × symbol rate, and mapping bit 1 +0.25 × symbol rate.

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

differential encoding enable

A value that indicates whether to enable differential encoding of the input symbols prior to mapping to the output bit stream.

Name Description
disable

Disables differential encoding for input symbols.

enable

Enables differential encoding for input symbols.

Default: enable

datatype_icon

reset?

A Boolean that determines whether stored state information is cleared on each call to this node.

When the input bit stream is not comprised of an integer number of symbols, the carryover bits are buffered.

TRUE Clears the buffered data, checks the input parameters on a first call, and reflects any change in the input parameter values during subsequent iterations.
FALSE Adds the buffered data to the beginning of data from next iteration, in continuous operations.

Default: TRUE

datatype_icon

output bit stream

A bit stream with a one-to-one mapping to the input symbols based on the specified symbol map.

datatype_icon

error out

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

Where This Node Can Run:

Desktop OS: Windows

FPGA: Not supported
