  • Patent number: 11363593
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A waveform for communications between a user equipment (UE) and a base station may be generated or decoded based on a resource allocation of a slot for the communications. In some cases, the UE may receive control information from the base station that indicates the resource allocation for the slot, where the slot contains a defined number of symbol periods (e.g., 14 symbol periods), or the defined number of symbol periods and at least one additional symbol period. The waveform may then be generated (e.g., transmitted) or decoded (e.g., received) based on the number of symbol periods in the slot. Additionally or alternatively, the UE and base station may identify an operating mode of the UE, identify allowed resource allocation sizes for generating or decoding the waveform, and generate or decode the waveform based on the allowed resource allocation sizes.
