  • Patent number: 11432369
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) can include processing circuitry coupled to memory. To configure the UE for New Radio (NR) communications above a 52.6 GHz carrier frequency, the processing circuitry is to decode radio resource control (RRC) signaling to obtain a cyclic shift value in time domain. The cyclic shift value is associated with a demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) antenna port (AP) of a plurality of available DM-RS APs. A single carrier based waveform DM-RS sequence corresponding to the DM-RS AP is generated using a base sequence and the cyclic shift value. The single carrier based waveform DM-RS sequence is encoded with uplink data for transmission to a base station using a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) using a carrier above the 52.6 GHz carrier frequency.

  • Publication number: 20220257573
    Abstract: Disclosed is a sustained-release microgel ointment with high drug loading and a preparation method and use thereof. HTCC aqueous solution and HA aqueous solution are mixed uniformly to obtain the microgel aqueous solution. A drug is mixed with the microgel aqueous solution and concentrated, and a thickening agent is added and mixed evenly to obtain the sustained-release microgel ointment with high drug loading. The HA and HTCC form a microgel through electrostatic action, which is safe and convenient. The concentration step increases the concentration of the drug solution outside the microgel, which can increase the drug loading of the microgel. Drugs not loaded in the microgel inhibited the drug from being released from the microgel, prolonging the sustained release time of the microgel. The thickener transforms the drug-loaded microgel suspension into a paste, facilitating to applying the drug on the skin surface. Meanwhile, the drug added can be used at 100%, reducing the cost of microgel ointment.
