  • Publication number: 20220360352
    Abstract: A terminal apparatus includes circuitry and a transmitter. The circuitry, in operation, generates a reference signal using a cyclic shift value and an orthogonal sequence, which are associated with each other. The orthogonal sequence is one of two orthogonal sequences corresponding to a first orthogonal sequence [1, 1] and a second orthogonal sequence [1, ?1]. The cyclic shift value is one of 12 cyclic shift values ranging from 0 to 11. The transmitter, in operation, transmits the reference signal multiplexed with a data signal. Two of the cyclic shift values having a difference of 6 are respectively associated with the two orthogonal sequences.

  • Patent number: 11496973
    Abstract: A radio communication apparatus is provided, which includes a receiver and a controller. The receiver, in operation, receives a first power headroom (PHR), which is obtained by subtracting a transmit power for a data channel from a maximum transmit power at a mobile station and which is transmitted from the mobile station, and receives a second PHR, which is obtained by subtracting the transmit power for the data channel and a transmit power for a control channel from the maximum transmit power at the mobile station and which is transmitted from the mobile station. The controller, in operation, selectively sets a simultaneous transmission of the data channel and the control channel in different frequency bands to be performed by the mobile station. When the data channel and the control channel are simultaneously transmitted in different frequency bands from the mobile station, the second PHR is obtained and transmitted from the mobile station.

  • Patent number: 11470583
    Abstract: Provided are a radio transmission device and a radio transmission method capable of improving downlink and uplink throughput even when performing dynamic symbol allocation. In the device and the method, BS and MS share a table correlating a basic TF as a combination of parameters such as TB size used for transmitting only user data, an allocation RB quantity, a modulation method, and an encoding ratio, with a derived TF having user data of different TB size by combining L1/L2 control information. Even when multiplexing L1/L2 control information, Index corresponding to the basic TF is reported from BS to MS.

  • Patent number: 8508647
    Abstract: The module connector can accommodate a miniaturized module such as a camera module and reliably fix the module in an electrically connected state, and make the connector itself in lower profile. With this connector (100), a housing (110) has a concave container (110a) that accommodates an inserted camera module (200) in which a plurality of pads are disposed its bottom face. A contact (130) has: an arm (131) that projects from the bottom face of the container (110a) to the interior of the container (110a) and that elastically deforms; and, at the tip of the arm (131), a contact point part (133) that is swingable in the insertion direction of the camera module (200) by means of elastic deformation of the arm (131) and that contacts a pad.

  • Patent number: 7862382
    Abstract: A memory card connector is able to insert and remove a memory card (200) without leaving marks of insertion and removal on the memory card (200), prevent the memory card from popping out when the memory card is inserted and removed and enable miniaturization at ease with a simple configuration. In this connector (100), by the side of a container (104) in which the memory card (200) is inserted, a slider (150) that has a lock claw part (155) engaging with a notch part (220) formed on the side of the memory card (200) is arranged movable in the longitudinal direction and swingable in a location at a card insertion slot end which is a location the memory card (200) is inserted halfway. The slider (150) is urged in the direction of removal by a coil spring (160), and this urge is suppressed by a slider pressuring piece (122) which presses the slider (150) from above and claw pressing piece (128) that presses the slider (150) located in a location at the card insertion slot end toward the memory card (200).
