Cyclic redundancy check decoding and removal
the input data vector for a CRC error assuming the vector comprises
a block of data with the associated CRC bits attached. The data part
of the input is returned in vector
blk. The logical

Check the effect of CRC decoding a block of data with and without a mask.
CRC encode attaching a masked
'24A'-type CRC to an all-ones vector of length 100.
rnti = 8; blkcrc = lteCRCEncode(ones(100,1),'24A',rnti);
CRC decode with the data block without using a mask.
[blk1,err1] = lteCRCDecode(blkcrc,'24A'); err1
err1 = uint32 8
The logical difference between the original CRC and recalculated CRC equals the CRC mask. Since the CRC was been masked, decoding without specifying the mask, returned
err1 = 8, which is the value of
CRC decode using the RNTI as a mask.
[blk2,err2] = lteCRCDecode(blkcrc,'24A',rnti); err2
err2 = uint32 0
The returned output,
err2, is 0 because the original mask,
rnti, is XORed with itself.
blkcrc— CRC input data bit vector
CRC input data bit vector, specified as a numeric column vector. The function checks the input bit vector for a CRC error assuming that the data consists of a block of data with CRC bits attached.
poly— CRC polynomial
CRC polynomial, specified as
'24B'. See TS 36.212 , Section 5.1.1 for the associated polynomials.
blk— Data bit vector
Data bit vector, returned as a column vector.
the data-only part of the input
err— Logical difference
Logical difference, returned as an integer.
the logical difference between the CRC and CRC recalculated across
the data part of the input.
