  • Publication number: 20240224190
    Abstract: Disclosed are techniques for wireless communication. In an aspect, a UE may partially disable transmissions on a transmission port based on a temperature condition (e.g., chipset temperature or skin temperature exceeding threshold). In a further aspect, the UE may enable the partially disabled transmissions on the transmission port in response to cessation of the temperature condition. In a further aspect, the UE may transmit a capability indication to a base station that indicates that the UE is capable of supporting a transition from a multi-layer (rank-2) communication mode to a single-layer (rank-1) communication mode.

  • Publication number: 20240146377
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods and apparatuses for enabling downlink throttling, such as for thermal mitigation. For example, a user equipment (UE) may transmit channel state feedback (CSF) with a report of a first rank that is less than a second rank associated with a channel condition and may communicate with a base station using a configuration associated with the first rank and without a set of sounding reference signals (SRSs). Alternatively, the UE may transmit one or more SRSs using a configuration associated with the first rank. In this way, by refraining from transmission of the SRSs or by adjusting the configuration the SRSs, the UE causes the base station to support downlink throttling.

  • Publication number: 20240114497
    Abstract: In some aspects, the present disclosure provides methods, apparatuses, and systems for efficient thermal mitigation while maintaining wireless device performance on a primary component carrier (PCC). Embodiments described may include implementation of target transceiver module configurations, where bandwidth (e.g., PCC bands and secondary component carrier (SCC) bands) may be monitored by a wireless device based on intra-module target configurations and/or inter-module target configurations. An intra-module target configuration may include a target transceiver module monitoring both PCC bands and SCC bands. An inter-module target configuration may include or refer to a plurality of target transceiver modules together monitoring PCC bands and SCC bands.

  • Publication number: 20240023115
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may receive, via a first carrier associated with a first radio access technology, at least a first uplink grant from a base station. The UE may implement one or more backoff schemes. For example, the UE may transmit, using resources indicated by at least the first uplink grant, an uplink message based on a temperature of one or more components of the UE satisfying a threshold, the uplink message including a transport block (TB) indicating data, a buffer status report (BSR) associated with the data, one or more padding bytes different from the data, or any combination thereof. The UE may monitor for at least a second uplink grant from the base station during a first time period based on transmitting the uplink message.

  • Patent number: 11832244
    Abstract: In an aspect, a user equipment (UE) may receive an uplink (UL) grant (e.g., dynamic UL grant, UL configured grant (CG)) from a network, but may decide to skip the UL grant altogether or not transmit any user plane data on the UL grant. In such instances, the UE may maintain or expedite expiration associated with one or more timers (e.g., discontinuous reception (DRX) and bandwidth part (BWP) inactivity timers, secondary cell (SCell) deactivation timer, etc.). The UE may also maintain or expedite expiration associated with one or more timers if it receives downlink (DL) transmission (e.g., DL semi-persistent scheduling (SPS)) from the network that includes no user plane data.

  • Publication number: 20230276522
    Abstract: Various aspects of the present disclosure generally relate to wireless communication. In some aspects, a mobile station may detect that a voltage fails to satisfy a performance threshold while operating in a dual subscriber identity module (SIM)-dual active (DSDA) mode associated with maintaining a first network connection in a first active mode concurrently with maintaining a second network connection in a second active mode. The mobile station may transition the first network connection from the first active mode to a standby mode based at least in part on detecting that the voltage fails to satisfy the performance threshold. Numerous other aspects are described.

  • Publication number: 20230247559
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication in a multi-connectivity user equipment (UE) are described. The UE may communicate with one or more base stations via a first radio access technology (RAT). The UE may determine whether the UE is in a selected state. The selected state may correspond to one or more modes of operation (e.g., a doze mode, a relaxed doze mode, an active WiFi communication mode, a low battery mode). The UE may disable communication via a second RAT in response to determining that the UE is in the selected state. The UE may continue to communicate via the first RAT.

  • Publication number: 20230209461
    Abstract: A UE may, responsive to detecting a power-related condition, send a message to induce the master node to release the secondary node. Such a message can include a message reporting a radio link failure of the secondary node, or, if a channel quality indicator is configured for at least some of the secondary cells of the secondary node, reporting a low CQI value so that the network can cease scheduling on such cells. Alternatively, in a carrier aggregation (CA) mode, with the UE connected to a single node comprising a primary cell and one or more secondary cells, the UE may not control which and how many secondary cells with which it communicates. In such a scenario, if such secondary cells are configured for channel quality indicator reporting, the UE may report a low CQI value so that the node will cease scheduling data on such cells.

  • Publication number: 20230118538
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to wireless communications, and more particularly, to techniques that may help mitigate service loss for a UE (e.g., in DSDA mode) due to temperature rise. According to certain aspects, a UE detects, while operating in a multi subscriber identity module (SIM) mode with at least a first subscriber (SUB) and a second subscriber (SUB) active on a first radio access technology (RAT), that the UE has reached a first temperature threshold less than a second temperature threshold at which the UE limits service in the first RAT and greater than a third temperature threshold associated with a temperature mitigation level. The UE then takes action to move the first SUB to a second RAT in response to the detecting.

  • Patent number: 11463216
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may be configured to receive a first configuration indicating for the UE to communicate with the base station using a set of receive ports. The UE may transmit, according to the first configuration in a first time interval associated with a first power state of the UE, sounding reference signals (SRSs) on a set of transmit ports corresponding to the set of receive ports. The UE may then communicate using less than all of the set of transmit ports for the SRSs based on determining to operate in a reduced power state. The UE may then receive, based on communicating using less than all of the set of transmit ports for the SRSs, a second configuration indicating for the UE to communicate with the base station using a first subset of receive ports.
