WLAN Toolbox: A-MPDU length is wrong for 802.11ac (VHT) packets?

2 views (last 30 days)
I am using Matlab 2017a with the WLAN Toolbox. As far as I can see, there is a bug in that the MPDU length is set incorrectly in the A-MPDU delimiter for 802.11ac (VHT) packets.
In R2017a/toolbox/wlan/wlanexamples/vhtWaveformGeneratePSDU.m there is a function named "delimiter" which sets this field. However, it basically does a direct de2bi(n,14) conversion to binary, which (as far as I can tell) fails to properly handle the two "MPDU Length High" bits described in the 802.11ac standard (see Figure Figure 8-505a1 in Section 8.6.1).
Has anyone else seen this? Or can anyone confirm whether this is a bug or not?
Many thanks!

I don't see any need to message privately. Anything we discuss may help someone else, so it makes sense for it to be visible on the forum.
I contacted Mathworks and they have confirmed that this is a bug. They were actually very responsive and also confirmed a couple of other bugs I found (and provided fixes very quickly). Hopefully, these fixes will eventually find their way into future releases of the WLAN toolbox. However, the last time I checked, I couldn't see any of the fixes available for download in isolation yet.
