If we keep 10 antennas at equal distance in a circle on XY-Plane, then their coordinates are given by the code given below:
function r=circularArray(N)
r = [rx, ry, zeros(N,1)];
end
Here you just put value of N where N is the number of antennas. So if N=10, then the above code gives:
r =
1.6180 0 0
1.3090 0.9511 0
0.5000 1.5388 0
-0.5000 1.5388 0
-1.3090 0.9511 0
-1.6180 0 0
-1.3090 -0.9511 0
-0.5000 -1.5388 0
0.5000 -1.5388 0
1.3090 -0.9511 0
Now if I want to keep 9 antennas at same equal distance on x and y -axes separatelyi.e., 4 antennas along x-axis and and 4 antennas along y-axis where the inter-antenna distance is same between any two consective antennas and 1 antenna is placed on the origin. Then what change is to be done in the above code to get the desired geometry i.e., L-type geometry instead of circile?

N = 9;
d = 0.25;
rx = [(N-1)/2*d:-d:d,zeros(1,(N+1)/2)].';
ry = [zeros(1,(N+1)/2),d:d:(N-1)/2*d].';
r = [rx,ry,zeros(N,1)]
r = 9×3
1.0000 0 0 0.7500 0 0 0.5000 0 0 0.2500 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.2500 0 0 0.5000 0 0 0.7500 0 0 1.0000 0
