So I need to make a function that will be called as function [t, pulse] = PAM (array). My function should have a result like this when I use array = [1 0.3 0.8 0.6], which array is the width of my digital pulsing signal.

result

Also please not a complete answer, I think it's better to think alone, but I'm in a point that I don't know what to do.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to SE.SP! I'd recommend what MBaz suggests. Chapter 8 seems to have a good exposition of how to convert between bits and symblos. I don't think MBaz is either Rick or Bill. (MBaz, if you are, Hi!). $\endgroup$ – Peter K. Jan 20 at 13:36

Solved it!

function [t, pulse] = PAM (array)
  syms t
  u(t) = heaviside(t);
  pulse = array(1)*u(t);
  
  for i = [2:length(array)]
    if array(i) > array(i - 1)
      pulse += abs(array(i-1)-array(i)).*u(t - (i-1));
    else 
      pulse -= (array(i-1)-array(i)).*u(t-(i-1));
    endif
  endfor
endfunction

It is much easier and faster to use the kron function as below

function [t, pulse] = pam(array,B,fs)

pulse=kron(array,ones(1,fs/B));
t=(0:length(pulse)-1)/fs;

where fs is the sampling frequency and B is the bandwidth of the pulse.

Look into the repelem() function.
