Channel Model

A basic channel model simulator that can be used to help evaluate, design, and test various signals, waveforms, and algorithms. This model allows the user to set the voltage of an AWGN noise source (), a (normalized) frequency offset (), a sample timing offset (), and a seed () to randomize or make reproducible the AWGN noise source. Multipath can be approximated in this model by using a FIR filter representation of a multipath delay profile with the parameter. To simulate a channel with time-variant channel, use Channel Model 2.


(R): Run-time adjustable

Noise Voltage (R)
The AWGN noise level as a voltage (to be calculated externally to meet, say, a desired SNR).
Frequency Offset (R)
The normalized frequency offset. 0 is no offset; 0.25 would be, for a digital modem, one quarter of the symbol rate.
Epsilon (R)
The sample timing offset to emulate the different rates between the sample clocks of the transmitter and receiver. 1.0 is no difference.
Taps (R)
Taps of a FIR filter to emulate a multipath delay profile. Default is 1+1j meaning a single tap, and thus no multipath.
A random number generator seed for the noise source.
Block Tag Propagation
If true, tags will not be able to propagate through this block.
