  • Patent number: 10715204
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices for operating in either frequency division duplexing (FDD) or time division duplexing (TDD) for wireless communications using the same electrical balance duplexer (EBD) circuitry in a transceiver device are provided. A series of switches may selectively couple components of the EBD, such as a low noise amplifier (LNA), a power amplifier (PA), and balancing impedance, to ground based on selected operation mode (e.g., FDD or TDD) while reducing insertion loss of the receiver (RX) and transmitter (TX) signals. Tuned matching network blocks for the LNA and PA may be used in addition to the series of switches to provide impedance matching for additional reduction of insertion loss.

  • Patent number: 10694006
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for a parser of a processing pipeline. The method receives a packet for processing by a set of match-action stages of the processing pipeline. The method stores packet header field (PHF) values from a first set of PHFs of the packet in a set of data containers. The first set of PHFs are for use by the match-action stages. For a second set of PHFs not used by the match-action stages, the method generates descriptive data that identifies locations of the PHFs of the second set within the packet. The method sends (i) the set of data containers to the match-action stages and (ii) the packet data and the generated descriptive data outside of the match-action stages to a deparser that uses the packet data, generated descriptive data, and the set of data containers as modified by the match-action stages to reconstruct a modified packet.

  • Patent number: 10687296
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) receives a first synchronization signal (SS) block including a first codeword and a second SS block including a second codeword. Each codeword is based on a linear encoding of a physical broadcast channel (PBCH) payload. The PBCH payloads include different timing indicators. The SS blocks are received at different times separated by a time increment. The UE determines, based on the time increment, one or more hypotheses of combined decoding metrics for the first codeword and the second codeword, and decodes the first codeword based on each of at least one hypothesis in the one or more hypotheses. The at least one hypothesis includes a correct hypothesis. The UE determines the first codeword based on an error detection procedure such as CRC verification performed when decoding the first codeword based on the correct hypothesis.

  • Patent number: 10686566
    Abstract: Provided are a method and an apparatus for transmission and reception based on hybrid automatic repeat request in a communication system. A first communication node includes a coherent channel region (CCR) mapper configured to determine W representative soft bit values for each CCR on the basis of X original soft bit values of signals and determine a sign sequence of the X original soft bit values, and a CCR demapper configured to restore X soft bit values for each CCR using W representative soft bit values and a sign sequence. Since the CCR mapper compresses soft bits using channel coherency, a hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) buffer size is reduced compared to that of an existing method. Therefore, performance of a communication system may be improved.

  • Patent number: 10686735
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for a deparser of a processing pipeline. The method receives, from a set of match-action stages of the pipeline, packet header field (PHF) values for a first set of PHFs of a packet processed by the match-action stages. The method also receives, directly from a parser of the pipeline, (i) packet data for the packet prior to any modification by the match-action stages and (ii) descriptive data that specifies locations within the packet data for a second set of PHFs of the packet that are not included in the first set of PHFs. The method constructs a packet from (i) the PHF values received for the first set of PHFs and (ii) the packet data received for the second set of PHFs. The descriptive data is used to extract packet header field values for the second set of PHFs from the packet data.
