  • Patent number: 11552729
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method and a device in a User Equipment (UE) and a base station for wireless communications. A UE receives first information, the first information being used for indicating M DCI blind decoding(s); monitors a first-type radio signal respectively on each of S sub-band(s) in a first time-domain resource; and performs at most M1 DCI blind decoding(s) of the M DCI blind decoding(s) on the S sub-band(s) in the first time-domain resource. Herein, the first-type radio signal detected on the S sub-band(s) is used for determining the M1 DCI blind decoding(s) out of the M DCI blind decoding(s). The above method allows the base station to make dynamic adjustments to the UE's blind decoding on PDCCH resources according to LBT results, ensuring that sufficient PDCCH resources are available and not too many PDSCH resources are preempted, and that excessive blind decodings can be avoided.

  • Patent number: 11546043
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) with the capability to support a single active TCI state may receive configuration signaling which configures the UE with an active transmission configuration indication (TCI) state corresponding to a first beam for a control resource set and a shared data channel. The UE may perform a random access channel procedure to select a second beam from a set of different beams. The UE may update a quasi co-location (QCL) assumption for the control resource set to correspond to the second beam and deactivate the active TCI state based on updating the QCL assumption. The UE may then monitor the control resource set, the shared data channel, or both, using the second beam. The UE may deactivate the TCI state and use the indicated downlink beam so that the UE does not exceed its capability.
