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

Version:
    Last Modified: February 7, 2018

    Maps complex-valued phase-shift keying (PSK) symbols to an output bit stream based on a user-specified symbol map.

    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

    The incoming complex-valued symbols to be mapped to the output bit stream based on the symbol map.

    datatype_icon

    symbol map

    An ordered array that maps each symbol value to its desired coordinates in the complex plane.

    The number of PSK states in the array must be 2 N , where N is the number of bits per symbol. To specify a prebuilt map, unbundle the symbol map element from the PSK system parameters cluster generated by MT Generate PSK System Parameters (M) or MT Generate PSK System Parameters (map).

    PSK type

    Type of PSK modulation.

    Name Description
    normal

    Sets the modulation type to regular PSK.

    shifted

    Rotates the constellation by π /M each symbol.

    offset

    Sets the modulation type to offset quadrature phase-shift keying (OQPSK). This modulation scheme is a form of phase-shift keying in which four different phase angles are used. This scheme is sometimes referred to as staggered quadrature phase-shift keying (SQPSK). For offset PSK, the ideal symbol timing for Q is offset by 1/2 of a symbol period from the ideal symbol timing for I. offset is currently only supported for M= 4.

    Default: normal

    datatype_icon

    carrier phase correction

    Carrier phase correction applied to the symbol array prior to mapping. The correction overcomes the starting phase ambiguity during shifted-PSK demodulation.

    Use this parameter when the PSK modulation type parameter is set to shifted and the differential PSK parameter is set to disable.

    Default: 0.0

    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

    differential PSK

    A value that indicates how the PSK modulation represents symbols.

    Differential operation is used to implement PSK formats such as differential quadrature PSK (DQPSK) and π /4-DQPSK.

    Name Description
    disable

    Symbols are represented as constellation points.

    enable

    Symbols are represented as the transitions between constellation points.

    Default: disable

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Web Server: Not supported in VIs that run in a web application
