Map Reference Signal to Resource Grid

This example shows how to map the cell specific reference signals to the resource grid for a subframe in the two antenna case.

Specify the parameter structure. In this scenario, there are 6 resource blocks in the downlink.

enb.CyclicPrefix = 'Normal';
enb.NDLRB = 6;
enb.CellRefP = 2;
enb.DuplexMode = 'FDD';

Create an empty resource grid for a subframe.

resourceGrid = lteDLResourceGrid(enb);

Specify NCellID and NSubframe in the input parameter structure. These fields are required to generate the cell-specific reference signals. In this example, select subframe number 0.

enb.NCellID = 10;
enb.NSubframe = 0;

Generate the cell-specific reference signals for the two antenna ports by calling the lteCellRS function.

rsAnt0 = lteCellRS(enb,0);
rsAnt1 = lteCellRS(enb,1);

Generate mapping indices for the two antenna ports. You need these mapping indices to map the generated complex symbols to the resource grid.

indAnt0 = lteCellRSIndices(enb,0);
indAnt1 = lteCellRSIndices(enb,1);

Map the reference signal complex symbols to the resource grid. Use the generated indices in linear form. Plot the resource grid.

resourceGrid(indAnt0) = rsAnt0;
resourceGrid(indAnt1) = rsAnt1;
ans = 1×3

    72    14     2

The resulting matrix has the complex symbols in rsAnt0 and rsAnt1 in the appropriate locations, specified by indAnt0 and indAnt1.
