Hierarchical block for OFDM demodulation.

The input is a complex baseband signal (e.g. from a UHD source). The detected packets are output as a stream of packed bits on the output.


FFT Length
The length of FFT (integer).
Cyclic Prefix Length
The length of cyclic prefix in total samples (integer).
Packet Length Tag Key
The name of the tag giving packet length at the input.
Occupied Carriers
A vector of vectors describing which OFDM carriers are occupied.
Pilot Carriers
A vector of vectors describing which OFDM carriers are occupied with pilot symbols.
Pilot Symbols
The pilot symbols.
Sync Word 1
The first sync preamble symbol. This has to be with zeros on alternating carriers. Used for fine and coarse frequency offset and timing estimation.
Sync Word 2
The second sync preamble symbol. This has to be filled entirely. Also used for coarse frequency offset and channel estimation.
Header Modulation
Payload Modulation
Scramble Bits
Activates the scramblers (set this to True unless debugging)
Log Debug Info
Write output into log files (Warning: creates lots of data!)

Example Flowgraph

Insert description of flowgraph here, then show a screenshot of the flowgraph and the output if there is an interesting GUI. Currently we have no standard method of uploading the actual flowgraph to the wiki or git repo, unfortunately. The plan is to have an example flowgraph showing how the block might be used, for every block, and the flowgraphs will live in the git repo.
