# genqammod

## Syntax

``y = genqammod(x,const)``

## Description

example

````y = genqammod(x,const)` returns the complex envelop of the QAM for message signal `x`. Input `const` specifies the signal mapping for the modulation.```

## Examples

collapse all

Create the points that describe a hexagonal constellation.

```inphase = [1/2 1 1 1/2 1/2 2 2 5/2]; quadr = [0 1 -1 2 -2 1 -1 0]; inphase = [inphase;-inphase]; inphase = inphase(:); quadr = [quadr;quadr]; quadr = quadr(:); const = inphase + 1i*quadr;```

Plot the constellation.

`h = scatterplot(const);` Generate input data symbols. Modulate the symbols using this constellation.

```x = [3 8 5 10 7]; y = genqammod(x,const);```

Demodulate the modulated signal, `y`.

`z = genqamdemod(y,const);`

Plot the modulated signal in same figure.

```hold on; scatterplot(y,1,0,'ro',h); legend('Constellation','Modulated signal');``` Determine the number of symbol errors between the demodulated data to the original sequence.

`numErrs = symerr(x,z)`
```numErrs = 0 ```

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Message signal, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or 3-D array of numeric values. The message signal must consist of integers from 0 and `length`(`const`)–1. If `x` is a matrix with multiple rows, the function processes the columns independently.

Data Types: `double` | `single` | `fi` | `int8` | `int16` | `uint8` | `uint16`

Signal mapping, specified as a complex vector.

Data Types: `double` | `single` | `fi` | `int8` | `int16` | `uint8` | `uint16`
Complex Number Support: Yes

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Complex envelope, returned as a scalar, vector, matrix, or 3-D array of numeric values. The length of `y` is the same as the length of input `x`.

Data Types: `double` | `single` | `fi` | `int8` | `int16` | `uint8` | `uint16`
