  • Publication number: 20210076391
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments are related to beam management in cellular communication networks, and in particular, provide a new transmission (Tx) beamforming indication based on the flexible Tx beam-forming assignment on the corresponding reference signal configured in a transmission configuration indicator (TCI) state for downlink (DL) or spatial relation information in the uplink (UL). The Tx beam-forming on the reference signal of the TCI state configured for the DL physical channel/reference signal can be updated based on reported Tx beam in the UL or using UL measurements from Sounding Reference Signal (SRS) transmission. Similarly, spatial relation information configuration used to indicate Tx beam-forming in the UL, may be also updated based on the reference signal measurements in DL or by suing Downlink Control Information (DCI) based beam indication in a scheduling request indicator (SRI). Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.

  • Publication number: 20210014848
    Abstract: Embodiments of a user equipment (UE) configured for operation in a fifth generation (5G) new radio (NR) network are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, a media access control Layer (MAC) control element (CE) (MAC CE) may activate a spatial relation info for a sounding reference signal (SRS) resource for two or more indicated component carriers (CCs). The spatial relation info for the SRS resource for the two or more indicated CCs may be applied in response to the activation. The SRS resource may be transmitted in the two or more indicated CCs with a same spatial transmission filter that is used for another reference signal configured in the spatial relation info when the UE is configured with one or more SRS resource configurations and when the spatial relation info is activated.

  • Patent number: 10868607
    Abstract: User equipment (UE) can include processing circuitry configured to decode radio resource control (RRC) signaling from a base station, the RRC signaling indicating a transmission coding scheme for a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) transmission. PUSCH-to-phase tracking reference signal (PT-RS) energy per resource element (EPRE) ratio is determined using the RRC signaling. A PT-RS power boosting factor is determined based on the transmission coding scheme and the PUSCH-to-PT-RS EPRE ratio. The PT-RS is encoded for transmission using a plurality of PT-RS symbols, the transmission using increased transmission power corresponding to the PT-RS power boosting factor. The RRC signaling further includes a flag enabling the PT-RS transmission. The PUSCH-to-PT-RS EPRE ratio is 00 or 01, and the transmission coding scheme is a codebook-based uplink transmission or non-codebook-based uplink transmission.

  • Publication number: 20200389897
    Abstract: Systems and methods for transmission of PDSCH and HARQ-ACK feedback in 5G networks are described. The TDRA of PDSCH repetitions are indicated in a DCI by a SLIV sequence configuration that contains multiple SLIV sequences. Each SLIV sequence for a slot is associated with an independent repetition factor and may also be associated with a partition factor to indicate a partition within the slot. One or more TRPs may be used to transmit each PDSCH repetition. The TCI states are mapped to the PDSCH repetitions in a round-robin fashion using an offset in terms of number of PDSCH repetitions from where TCI state switching starts and a number of consecutive PDSCH repetitions per TCI state. The HARQ-ACK bits in response to the PDSCH from the TRPs are concatenated in order of increasing control resource set higher layer signaling index.

  • Publication number: 20200214083
    Abstract: An apparatus of user equipment (UE) includes processing circuitry coupled to a memory, where to configure the UE for DMRS processing in an NR network, the processing circuitry is to decode higher layer signaling, the higher layer signaling to indicate whether transform precoding is enabled and to indicate a modulation scheme for a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) if transform precoding is enabled. A set of low Peak-to-Average-Power-Ratio (PAPR) base sequences of length-6 is generated. A reference signal sequence is generated as a demodulation reference signal (DMRS) using the set of low-PAPR base sequences, based on the modulation scheme if transform precoding is enabled by the higher layer signaling, the modulation scheme being a ?/2-binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) modulation scheme. Mapping of the DMRS to physical resources for transmission using the PUSCH is performed.
