  • Patent number: 11005601
    Abstract: In a case of a contention-based radio communication technique, it is necessary to identify a terminal apparatus that has performed data transmission among terminal apparatuses sharing frequency resources. There is a problem that it is difficult to identify the terminal apparatus that has performed data transmission in a case with a large number of terminal apparatuses that are non-orthogonally spatial multiplexed. Provided is a transmission device for transmitting a data signal to a reception device, the transmission device including: a transmission processing unit configured to transmit the data signal without performing SR transmission or receiving control information of transmission permission transmitted from the reception device; an identification signal multiplexing unit configured to multiplex an identification signal to an orthogonal resource; and a control information receiving unit configured to receive in advance a transmission parameter relating to transmission of the data signal.

    Abstract: A terminal apparatus receives one transport block by using a PDSCH, receives RRC information indicating a maximum number X of CBGs, determines transmit power of a PUCCH, and transmits UCI at least including a HARQ-ACK corresponding to the one transport block on the PUCCH. The one transport block includes NCB code blocks. The HARQ-ACK includes the X HARQ-ACKs bits. In a case that a number of bits of the UCI does not exceed a prescribed number of bits, the transmit power of the PUCCH including the UCI is determined at least based on a smaller value of the X and the NCB. In a case that the number of bits of the UCI exceeds the prescribed number of bits, the transmit power of the PUCCH is determined at least based on the number of bits of the UCI.
