RMC and Conformance

RMC, FRC, and E-TM configuration and waveform generation; link-level BER and conformance test

Functions and apps to define reference measurement channel (RMC), fixed reference channel (FRC), and E-UTRA test model (E-TM) configurations and perform waveform generation. Also includes an app for PDSCH conformance testing. Examples demonstrate generation of end-to-end communication link simulation and performance assessment of these links.

Topics

Test Models and BER

  • Generate a Test Model
    The LTE specifications define conformance test models for transmitter tests.
  • PDSCH Bit Error Rate Curve Generation
    This example shows how the LTE Toolbox™ can be used to create Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) Bit Error Rate (BER) curves under Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) in a simple Graphical User Interface (GUI).

PUSCH Performance Requirements

  • PUSCH Throughput Conformance Test
    This example demonstrates how to measure the Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) throughput performance using the LTE Toolbox™ under conformance test conditions as defined in TS36.104.
  • Release 10 PUSCH Multiple Codeword Throughput Conformance Test
    This example measures the throughput performance of the Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) with closed-loop spatial multiplexing using the LTE Toolbox™ under a 2-codeword Release 10 UL-MIMO scenario, based on conformance test conditions as defined in Table 8.2.1.1-7 of TS 36.104.
  • PUSCH HARQ-ACK Detection Conformance Test
    This example shows how to measure the false detection probability and missed detection probability of Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request ACK (HARQ-ACK) multiplexed on the Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) using the LTE Toolbox™ under conformance test conditions as defined in TS36.104, Section 8.2.4.1.

PUCCH Performance Requirements

  • PUCCH1a ACK Missed Detection Probability Conformance Test
    This example measures the Acknowledgment (ACK) missed detection probability using the LTE Toolbox™ under the single user Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH1a) conformance test conditions as defined in TS 36.104 Section 8.3.2.1.
  • PUCCH2 CQI BLER Conformance Test
    This example shows how to measure the channel quality indicator (CQI) block error rate (BLER), which indicates the probability of incorrectly decoding CQI information sent using physical uplink control channel (PUCCH) format 2.
  • PUCCH1a Multi User ACK Missed Detection Probability Conformance Test
    This example shows how to use the LTE Toolbox™ to measure the probability of Acknowledgment (ACK) missed detection for multiuser Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) 1a.
  • PUCCH3 ACK Missed Detection Probability Conformance Test
    This example measures the ACK missed detection probability using the LTE Toolbox™ under the single user Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH3) conformance test conditions as defined in TS 36.104 Section 8.3.6.1.
