Recover bandwidth signaling from initial scrambler state
Configure and generate a non-HT Data signal with a channel bandwidth of 160 MHz and dynamic bandwidth operation.
bandwidth = 'CBW160'; cfg = wlanNonHTConfig('ChannelBandwidth',bandwidth,'PSDULength',1, ... 'SignalChannelBandwidth',true,'BandwidthOperation','Dynamic'); bits = randi([0 1],8*cfg.PSDULength,1,'int8'); [range,~] = scramblerRange(cfg); scramInit = randi(range); y = wlanNonHTData(bits,cfg,scramInit);
Transmit the waveform through an AWGN channel with an SNR of 50.
snr = 50; noiseVarEst = 10^(-snr/10); rx = awgn(y,snr);
Recover the frequency-domain signal by OFDM demodulating the non-HT Data signal, specifying an OFDM symbol sampling offset.
field = 'NonHT-Data'; symOffset = 0.5; sym = wlanNonHTOFDMDemodulate(rx,field,bandwidth,'OFDMSymbolOffset',symOffset);
Extract the data subcarriers.
info = wlanNonHTOFDMInfo(field,bandwidth); sym = sym(info.DataIndices,:);
Recover the first 20 MHz subchannel of the PSDU, enhancing the demapping of the OFDM subcarriers by specifying channel state information. Confirm that the received and transmitted PSDUs match.
csi = ones(48,1); [psdu,scramInit] = wlanNonHTDataBitRecover(sym(1:48,:),noiseVarEst,csi,cfg); isequal(bits,psdu)
ans = logical 1
Recover and display bandwidth signaling by interpreting the scrambler state.
[bandwidth,dyn] = wlanInterpretScramblerState(scramInit)
bandwidth = 'CBW160'
dyn = logical 1
scramInit— Initial scrambler state
Initial scrambler state, specified as an integer in the interval [1, 127], or the corresponding binary-valued column vector of length 7.
Section 184.108.40.206 of  specifies the scrambling and descrambling process applied to the transmitted data. The header and data fields that follow the scrambler initialization field (including data padding bits) are scrambled by XORing each bit with a length-127 periodic sequence generated by the polynomial S(x) = x7 + x4 + 1. The octets of the PSDU are placed into a bit stream, and, within each octet, bit 0 (LSB) is first and bit 7 (MSB) is last. This figure demonstrates the sequence generation and XOR operation.
Conversion from integer to bits uses left-MSB orientation. For the
initialization of the scrambler with decimal
1, the bits are mapped
to the elements shown.
To generate the bit stream equivalent to a decimal, use the
de2bi function. For example, for the decimal
de2bi(1,7,'left-msb') ans = 0 0 0 0 0 0 1
[1; 0; 1; 1; 1; 0; 1] conveys the scrambler
initialization state of 93 as a binary-valued column vector.
idx1— dot11CurrentChannelCenterFrequencyIndex1 parameter
0(default) | scalar in the interval [0, 200]
dot11CurrentChannelCenterFrequencyIndex1 parameter, as defined in Table 17-9 of , specified as a scalar in the interval [0, 200].
bandwidth— Recovered channel bandwidth
Recovered channel bandwidth, returned as one of these values.
'CBW20' — Channel bandwidth of 20 MHz
'CBW40' — Channel bandwidth of 40 MHz
'CBW80' — Channel bandwidth of 80 MHz
'CBW160' — Channel bandwidth of 160 MHz
'CBW80+80' — Channel bandwidth of 160 MHz comprising
two non-adjacent 80 MHz channels
dyn— Indication of whether bandwidth operation is dynamic or static
Indication of whether bandwidth operation is dynamic or static, returned as a
0. A value of
indicates static bandwidth operation. A value of
1 indicates dynamic
