MT Map Symbols to Bits (MT Map CPM Symbols to Bits) (G Dataflow)

Version:
    Last Modified: February 7, 2018

    Maps symbols comprised of CPM frequency deviations to an output bit stream based on the symbol map that you specify.

    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 map

    A two-dimensional array of desired frequency deviations.

    Each column corresponds to a symbol, with the binary representation of the column index being the mapped bit-representation of the symbol. Each row corresponds to a modulation index in the order in which it appears in the modulation index, h(i) parameter of MT Generate CPM System Parameters (M) or MT Generate CPM System Parameters (map). To specify a prebuilt map, unbundle the symbol map element from the CPM system parameters cluster generated by MT Generate CPM System Parameters (M) or MT Generate CPM System Parameters (map).

    Default: empty array

    datatype_icon

    synchronization parameters

    Parameter values describing the synchronization sequence and the range of bits over which to search for the sequence. Wire the CPM synchronization parameters cluster returned by MT Generate CPM Synchronization Parameters (bit array) or MT Generate CPM Synchronization Parameters (number array) to this cluster.

    Note  

    If the synchronization parameters cluster is not wired, the demodulator does not attempt to synchronize, and the constellation of the demodulated waveform has a carrier phase ambiguity.

    datatype_icon

    expected sync location

    The expected location of the first symbol of the sync sequence.

    This value is an index to the input complex waveform. A value of -1 searches the entire input complex waveform and ignores the sync location uncertainty parameter.

    datatype_icon

    sync sequence

    The mapped symbol pattern. Although the data type is complex, only the real portion is used.

    The real portion of the mapped symbols is the frequency deviation of the symbol value, and the imaginary portion is 0. To prevent false synchronization, configure this pattern so that there is a low probability of accidental correlation to nonsynchronized parts of the data stream. If this parameter is left empty, the signal is still demodulated.

    datatype_icon

    sync location uncertainty

    Number of symbols before or after the expected sync location where the first symbol of the sync sequence may be located. The node ignores this parameter if the expected sync location parameter is set to -1.

    Default: 10

    datatype_icon

    sync indent

    Distance that the sync sequence is indented into the information block.

    The distance is the number of demodulated symbols preceding the sync sequence. For example, a value of 10 indicates that the output bit stream consists of 10 data symbols, followed by the sync sequence, followed by the remaining data symbols.

    Default: 0

    datatype_icon

    error in

    Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

    The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

    Standard Error Behavior

    Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

    error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
    If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

    If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

    If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

    Default: No error

    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.
