  • Patent number: 10609700
    Abstract: A downlink control information (DCI), such as a blanking DCI (bDCI) message may be transmitted by a base station (e.g., eNB) and received by a mobile device (e.g., UE). The bDCI may indicate that the eNB will not transmit a subsequent DCI to the UE for a duration of time. The UE may be in continuous reception mode or connected discontinuous reception (C-DRX) mode. The UE may therefore determine to enter a sleep state or take other action. The bDCI may specify an explicit blanking duration, or an index indicating a blanking duration from a lookup table, and/or the blanking duration (and/or a blanking duration offset value) may be determined in advance, e.g., semi-statically. When the UE is in C-DRX mode, the UE may be configured such that either the sleep/wake period of the C-DRX mode or the blanking period of the bDCI may take precedence over the other.

  • Patent number: 10541768
    Abstract: Apparatuses, systems, and methods for a wireless device to perform simultaneous uplink activity for multiple RATs in the same carrier using multiplexing at a layer above the physical layer. The wireless device may establish wireless links with first and second base stations, respectively, according to first and second radio access technologies (RATs), respectively. The first base station may provide a first cell operating in a first system bandwidth and the second base station may provide a second cell operating in a second system bandwidth. The wireless device may determine whether inter-RAT uplink coexistence in the same frequency band is enabled. If so, the wireless device may perform uplink activity for both the first RAT and the second RAT in the first system bandwidth by multiplexing uplink data for the first RAT and uplink data for the second RAT at a layer above the physical layer.

  • Publication number: 20190281504
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to techniques for a wireless device to indicate a preferred bandwidth part and duty cycle in a cellular communication system. A wireless device and a cellular base station may establish a radio resource control connection. The wireless device may transmit an indication of a preferred bandwidth part, or a preferred communication duty cycle, or both, to the cellular base station. The cellular base station may select a bandwidth part, or communication duty cycle, or both, based at least in part on the indication provided by the wireless device, and may transmit an indication of the selected bandwidth part, communication duty cycle, or both, to the wireless device. The cellular base station and the wireless device may perform cellular communication using the selected bandwidth part, communication duty cycle, or both.

  • Patent number: 10412591
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) device may perform uplink (UL) data communication using a first radio access technology (RAT) while performing an UL voice call communication using a second RAT. The UL data communication may be supported by a first subscriber identity module (SIM) and the UL packet switched voice call communication may be supported by a second SIM. The UL voice call communication may be a packet switched communication. The communications may be performed by a radio(s) of the UE. The radio(s) may include shared physical layer resources that are shared between the UL data and UL voice communications. The UE may also include a single transmitter that may be shared between the UL data and UL packet voice communications and the UL data communication may use a first portion of the single transmitter's TTI and the UL voice communication may use a second portion of the single transmitter's TTI.

  • Publication number: 20020085379
    Abstract: The invention is a surface light source generator that can provide surface light with a high luminosity and uniformity and a small dispersion angle. The invention uses the light emitting diodes (LEDs) for industrial standard light bulb packaging as its basis. By redesigning the shape of the LED elements (e.g., hexagonal pillars, quadrangle pillars or triangular pillars) and disposing a plurality of same type LEDs together, a surface type illuminator comprised of many closely packed LED elements is formed. Using the convergent effect of the convex lens on top of the LED elements, the light dispersion angle is controlled within 15 degrees. Such a technique of packing many LED elements together can increase the unit area luminosity of the surface light source generator and, at the same time, achieve a high luminosity and uniformity.
