  • Publication number: 20210126691
    Abstract: A UE determines a PMI, by performing at least the following: determining an intermediate set of vectors from a FD codebook; forming a subset of the intermediate set of vectors; mapping the subset of vectors to a combinatorial indicator; and forming the PMI at least from the combinatorial indicator. The UE sends the PMI toward a wireless network. A base station receives the PMI from the UE. The PMI includes a combinatorial indicator that maps to a subset of vectors from the FD codebook. The base station determines, using at least the received PMI, information from at least the FD codebook to apply to data for transmission toward the UE.

  • Publication number: 20210028846
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to methods, devices, apparatuses and computer readable storage media for Uplink Control Information (UCI) design. The method comprises determining, at a terminal device, a matrix comprising a set of non-zero linear combination coefficients for quantizing a channel between the terminal device and a network device, the matrix having spatial components and frequency components; shifting the frequency components of the matrix circularly, such that a target coefficient of the set of non-zero linear combination coefficients is located in a frequency component with a predetermined index of the frequency components in a shifted matrix; generating a first indication indicating the spatial component associated with the target coefficient in the matrix; and transmitting, to the network device, uplink control information comprising the first indication. In this way, a new solution for designing the UCI may reduce the overhead for reporting the parameters in the UCI.

  • Patent number: 10097246
    Abstract: A control method for a communication network that has a transmitter with an array of transmit antennas and that has at least one receiver communicating with the transmitter. The receiver performs a channel measurement for a receive antenna of the receiver using a signal transmitted from the transmitter to the receiver. The receiver further determines channel coefficients for each of an array of transmit antennas at the transmitter from an output of the channel measurement, and then applies a linear, reversible and orthogonal transform to the channel coefficients, thus ascertaining channel component coefficients indicative of the individual weight of respective channel components in a transform domain. The receiver then selects one or more channel components in the transform domain and communicates to the transmitter a control signal indicative of one or more preferred channel components or a magnitude of one or more channel component coefficients, or both, in quantized form.

    Abstract: A device comprising an input for receiving an OFDM signal, a processor and a memory for storing code. The code is configured to, when executed by the processor, cause the processor to generate a modified signal with reduced PAPR based on the OFDM signal by performing first and second PAPR reduction methods. In the first PAPR reduction method an intermediate signal is generated so that the number of signal peaks above a predetermined threshold is substantially minimised. In the second PAPR reduction method the PAPR of the intermediate signal is reduced.
