wlanLLTF

Generate L-LTF waveform

Description

example

y = wlanLLTF(cfg) generates an L-LTF[1] time-domain waveform for the specified configuration object.

Examples

collapse all

Generate the L-LTF for a 40 MHz single antenna VHT packet.

cfgVHT = wlanVHTConfig('ChannelBandwidth', 'CBW40');
y = wlanLLTF(cfgVHT);
size(y)
ans = 1×2

   320     1

plot(abs(y))
xlabel('Samples')
ylabel('Amplitude')

The output L-LTF waveform contains 320 time-domain samples for a 40 MHz channel bandwidth.

Input Arguments

Output Arguments

collapse all

L-LTF time-domain waveform, returned as an NS-by-NT matrix. NS is the number of time-domain samples, and NT is the number of transmit antennas.

NS is proportional to the channel bandwidth. The time-domain waveform consists of two symbols.

L-LTF

The legacy long training field (L-LTF) is the second field in the 802.11™ OFDM PLCP legacy preamble. The L-LTF is a component of VHT, HT, and non-HT PPDUs.

Channel estimation, fine frequency offset estimation, and fine symbol timing offset estimation rely on the L-LTF.

The L-LTF is composed of a cyclic prefix (CP) followed by two identical long training symbols (C1 and C2). The CP consists of the second half of the long training symbol.

The L-LTF duration varies with channel bandwidth.

Algorithms

The L-LTF is two OFDM symbols long and follows the L-STF of the preamble in the packet structure for the VHT, HT, and non-HT formats. For algorithm details, refer to IEEE Std 802.11ac™-2013 [1], Section 22.3.8.2.3 and IEEE Std 802.11-2012 [2], Section 20.3.9.3.4.
