lteUCIDecode

PUCCH format 2, 2a, and 2b transmission UCI decoding

Description

example

ucibits = lteUCIDecode(cw,n) returns a vector of decoded UCI bits, ucibits, resulting from decoding the soft bit column vector, cw, where the output vector, ucibits, is expected to contain n bits. ucibits is a column vector of CQI/PMI or RI bits (UCI), representing the CQI/PMI or RI information fields described in TS 36.212, Section 5.2.3.3 . n must be between 1 and 13. The decoder uses a maximum likelihood approach assuming that cw has been demodulated using ltePUCCH2Decode whose input had already been equalized to best restore the originally transmitted complex values. If multiple decoded UCI bit vectors have a likelihood equal to the maximum, UCIBITS will be a matrix where each column represents one of the equally likely bit vectors

Decode UCI bits representing RI=3 using N=2 bits. According to TS 36.212, Table 5.2.2.6-6 this maps to the set of input bits [1;0].

cw = lteUCIEncode([1;0])
cw = 20x1 int8 column vector
