  • Patent number: 10778385
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for spreading symbols over multiple time-frequency resources that rely on simple base constellations that can be sent over a frequency tone or time slot. A set of input bits (or an input symbol) are mapped to K symbols, and a symbol-to-resource-element mapping is applied that maps the K symbols to resource units. The mapping to the K symbols may be a linear mapping that maps an input symbol to K target tones through a 2K×2 real matrix, where input symbol is a complex point in a base constellation, and is considered as a 2-dimensional real vector. Up to K co-orthogonal 2K×2 real matrices (whose columns are orthogonal to each other) can be associated with the subset of K target tones. Each of the K co-orthogonal matrices can be used for mapping of an independent symbol from a separate steam of symbols which can be associated to a single UE or separate UEs.

  • Patent number: 10735143
    Abstract: Methods of transmitting and receiving a set of bits are provided. In the transmitting method, some of the bits are mapped to modulated symbol, and some of the bits map to a subset of transmission resources out of a first set of transmission resources. The modulated symbol is transmitted using the subset of transmission resources. At the receiver, a modulated symbol is received using a subset of transmission resources. Some bits are recovered by demodulating the demodulated symbol, and some of the bits are recovered based on the subset of transmission resources over which the modulated symbol was received.

  • Patent number: 10707999
    Abstract: The disclosed systems, structures, and methods are directed to a wireless local area network (WLAN) transmission architecture and transmitting methodology that combines space-time block code (STBC) encoding techniques with semi-orthogonal multiple access (SOMA) schemes to improve throughput rate performance for lower signal strength data. The transmission architecture and method includes a data processing module that is configured to digitally process and format data produced by two wireless stations. A SOMA constellation quadrature encoding module operates to apply quadrature-based modulation to the processed data and map the data to a modulation constellation based on data signal strength and data bit reliability. An STBC encoding module is configured to block encode the SOMA modulated data with orthogonal codes to produce STBC-based SOMA-symbol data having time and space diversity properties that improve throughput performance at lower signal strength levels.

  • Patent number: 10700912
    Abstract: A bit-level operation may be implemented prior to modulation and resource element (RE) mapping in order to generate a NoMA transmission using standard (QAM, QPSK, BPSK, etc.) modulators. In this way, the bit-level operation is exploited to achieve the benefits of NoMA (e.g., improved spectral efficiency, reduced overhead, etc.) at significantly less signal processing and hardware implementation complexity. The bit-level operation is specifically designed to produce an output bit-stream that is longer than the input bit-stream, and that includes output bit-values that are computed as a function of the input bit-values such that when the output bit-stream is subjected to modulation (e.g., m-ary QAM, QPSK, BPSK), the resulting symbols emulate a spreading operation that would otherwise have been generated from the input bit-stream, either by a NoMA-specific modulator or by a symbol-domain spreading operation.

  • Patent number: 10700838
    Abstract: Embodiments are provided herein for increasing low density signature space for multiplexed transmissions for a plurality of users. The embodiments include generating a virtual signature using a combination operation on a plurality of basic signatures. The generated virtual signatures are provisioned as basic resource units (BRUs) for transmissions for corresponding users. The combination operation is a row-wise or column-wise permutation for combining, in each of the virtual signatures, rows or columns of corresponding basic signatures. The rows or columns represent sequences of frequency bands at one time interval or sequences of allocated time intervals at one frequency band. Alternatively, the combination operation is intra-basic resource unit (BRU) hopping. The embodiments also include generating a plurality of BRU sets comprised of virtual signatures. Each of the BRU sets is provisioned for a corresponding user.

  • Publication number: 20200186189
    Abstract: According to aspects of the disclosure, there is provided a method for a UE to select or be assigned or configured with a spreading sequence that is based on one or more communication parameters such as receiver type, receiver capability, SE, TBS, MCS, traffic load, PAPR requirement, MCL, number of layers, overloading, reliability requirement, transmission power consumption, number of active UEs, and transmission latency constraint, etc. In some embodiments, the spreading sequence may be related to a performance metric associated with an above parameter (PAPR, BLER, etc.). In some embodiments, this is achieved by associating spreading sequences with parameters or performance metrics, or both. In some instances the spreading sequences may be arranged or ordered in a manner to reduce signaling overhead (e.g., signaling an index is more efficient than signaling a value of a metric, and ordering correlates the index to the value).
