  • Patent number: 11985636
    Abstract: Various aspects of the present disclosure generally relate to wireless communication. In some aspects, a user equipment (UE) may receive a downlink communication. The UE may receive a configuration identifying a first uplink resource for a hybrid automatic repeat request acknowledgement (HARQ-ACK) and a second uplink resource for multiplexing channel state information (CSI) reports. The UE may receive a downlink communication. The UE may determine that a HARQ-ACK for the downlink communication is to be multiplexed with one or more CSI reports on the second uplink resource. The UE may determine that an error has occurred based at least in part on a determination that the second uplink resource configured is in a different sub-slot than the first uplink resource. Numerous other aspects are provided.

  • Patent number: 11949426
    Abstract: Aspects relate to analog-to-digital conversion of an analog signal. The resolution (number of bits) and/or the quantization levels of the analog-to-digital conversion may be configurable. A device may configure its analog-to-digital conversion parameters. For example, a first device may reduce the number of bits for its analog-to-digital converter to reduce power consumption. In this case, the first device may transmit an indication of selected analog-to-digital conversion parameters to a second device that will transmit to the first device. In this way, the second device may take appropriate action, if needed. A device may request another device to use certain analog-to-digital conversion parameters. For example, a first device may determine that a second device should use a larger number of bits for its analog-to-digital conversion process to improve the quality of the communication between the first and second devices.
