Hi, I'm developing an OFDM system. In the transmitter I have taken 4 transmission symbols. Then zero padding is done according to IFFT size and to get a real signal after IFFT, I have taken the symmetry of that. The problem is I'm not receiving the same transmitted symbol stream after doing FFT at the receiver (transmission channel is not included yet). Please correct my MATLAB code. clc close all clear all n = 4; n_bits = 2^n; %Number of bits to process M = 4; %Size of the signal constellation m = log2(M); %Number of bits per symbol IFFT_size = 2^6; %Size of overall usable symbol size (without cyclic prefix) num_zeros = (IFFT_size/2)-4; %Number of zeros z_zero =[1;2;3;4;zeros(num_zeros,1)]; %Zero-Padding z_symmetry = flipud(z_zero); %Taking symmetry to get a real signal z_full = [z_zero;0;z_symmetry(1:length(z_symmetry)-1)]; subplot(2,1,1); stem(z_full); z = ifft(z_full); w = fft((z)); subplot(2,1,2); stem(w); Thank You. _____________________________ Posted through www.DSPRelated.com
