DigitalComm.bfofdmSigGenMethod

Creates a Block Filtered - OFDM (BF-OFDM) signal parametrized by its numerlogy and its waveform parameter. Generate a time domain signal based on the input matrix qamMat. The input matrix is a T/F matrix of size (nRe x nbSymb) with nRe the number of allocated subcarrier and nbSymb the number of symbols.

The waveform is parametrized by the PPN size (number of carriers) nFBMC, the size of the precoding stage nOFDM, the CP size of the precoding stage GI and the compression factor parameter δ. See [1], [2] for waveform description and [3,5] for importance and design of compression rate (set to 0.5 in former works on BF-OFDM).

BF-OFDM is characterized by its pulse shape filter. Pulse shape can be automatically tuned to optimal (in terms of innterference management) [4]. In such a case, filterType should be a string (can be "gaussianopt", "dcopt" and "fs_opt"). For a specific pulse shape filter, an array of the nFBMC*K filter taps should be given (and generated for example with getBFOFDMFilter).

DigitalComm.wolaSigGenFunction

Apply Weighted Overlap and Add Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (WOLA-OFDM) to the time frequency matrix qamMat and returns a time domain OFDM signal OFDM is parametrized by its FFT size, its cyclic prefix length (in samples) and the allocSubcarriers vector. The WOLA part is parametrized by the window applied at each beginning and ending of symbols. The window size can be (and is likely to be) higher than the length of the CP and pure OFDM compatibility is ensured by overlapping the symbols. The interested reader can refer to [1] [2] and [3] for WOLA principle description.
