I am having trouble setting some parameters and getting anything out of it…
- is the processing done on an 1 sample per symbol basis at the Scmidl&Cox ?
I don’t understand the question. The correlator has no info about OFDM
In that case the input sample rate has to be set to the symbol rate?
(what is called samp_rate in ofdm_tx)
This is the input sample rate. The bit rate depends on the number of
carriers used, the length of the CP and the modulation type on the
payload. The OFDM symbol rate is the sample rate / (fft_len + cp_len).
- In the Header/Payload Demux what is the meaning of the value 3 in
the header symbols parameter?
It’s the number of symbols in the header. There’s two for
synchronization / channel estimation, and one for the actual header
(which stores the number of bytes etc.)
My guess is that the first two training OFDM symbols are used for
channel estimation and the third OFDM symbol contains in it all info
of the 8-byte=48 bits of the header which is extracted and a message
(what is it?) is fed back to the header/payload demux.
The message is a PMT-dict. It contains the info from the header, the
channel state and the coarse frequency offset.
BTW, can someone explain what the default header formatter does; I
couldn’t quite get it form the code…
It’s explained in the docstring for
- \brief Encodes the header information in the given tags into bits and
places them into \p out
- Uses the following header format:
- Bits 0-11: The packet length (what was stored in the tag with key \p
- Bits 12-27: The header number (counts up everytime this function is
- Bit 28: Even parity bit
- All other bits: Are set to zero
- If the header length is smaller than 29, bits are simply left out.
- reason, they always start with the LSB.
