  • Publication number: 20200287667
    Abstract: A method for mapping a physical hybrid automatic repeat request indicator channel (PHICH) is described. The method for mapping a PHICH includes determining an index of a resource element group transmitting a repetitive pattern of the PHICH, according to a ratio of the number of available resource element groups in a symbol in which the PHICH is transmitted and the number of available resource element groups in a first or second OFDM symbol, and mapping the PHICH to the symbol according to the determined index. In transmitting the PHICH, since efficient mapping is performed considering available resource elements varying with OFDM symbols, repetition of the PHICH does not generate interference between neighbor cell IDs and performance is improved.

    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for transmitting a reception acknowledgement for hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) of a user equipment (UE). The reception acknowledgement may be an ACK signal or a NACK signal for physical downlink shared channels (PDSCHs). The reception acknowledgement is transmitted on a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH), and the UE selects a resource of the PUCCH based on a number of the received physical downlink control channels. That is, the UE selects a first PUCCH resource for a number of the received PDCCHs being less than a pre-defined number, and the UE selects a second PUCCH resource for a number of the received PDCCHs being equal to or greater than the pre-defined number.

  • Publication number: 20200229220
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) receives downlink data using resource blocks in a wireless mobile communication system. The UE receives downlink control information including resource allocation information and downlink data mapped to physical resource blocks (PRBs) based on the downlink control information. The resource allocation information indicates virtual resource block (VRB) allocations for the UE. Indexes of the PRBs to which the downlink data are mapped are determined based on a mapping relationship between virtual resource blocks (VRBs) and the PRBs. The mapping relationship is defined based on indexes of the VRBs which are mapped to the indexes of the PRBs for a first slot of a subframe and a second slot of the subframe. The indexes of the PRBs for the second slot are shifted with respect to the indexes of the PRBs for the first slot based on a predetermined gap. The mapping relationship includes a transformation of VRB indexes based on a matrix.

  • Patent number: 10631321
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) receives downlink data using resource blocks in a wireless mobile communication system. The UE receives downlink control information including resource allocation information and downlink data mapped to physical resource blocks (PRBs) based on the downlink control information. The resource allocation information indicates virtual resource block (VRB) allocations for the UE. A resource block pair includes a first resource block associated with a first time slot and a second resource block associated with a second time slot adjacent to the first time slot. The first and second resource blocks are allocated to the same frequency indices. A mapping between VRB pairs and PRB pairs exists such that frequency consecutive VRB pairs are mapped to non-frequency consecutive PRB pairs and that each resource block pair is split so there is a frequency gap between the first and second parts of the resource block pair.

  • Patent number: 10624081
    Abstract: A User Equipment (UE) receives control information via a Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) at subframe k. A decoder monitors a set of PDCCH candidates a UE-specific search space, among the search spaces, at each of aggregation levels (L) of 1, 2, 4 and 8 control channel elements (CCEs). The UE-specific search space is given based on a modulus operation using variables Yk and C for the subframe k. Yk is defined by: Yk=(A*Yk?1+B) mod D. C is determined based on the number of CCEs (NCCE) divided by the aggregation level (L). A, B, and D are predetermined constant values regardless of the aggregation levels (L). Y?1 is determined based on a UE identifier having 16-bits when k=0. The decoder decodes the control information of the PDCCH.

  • Patent number: 10624067
    Abstract: A method for adaptively allocating resources of an uplink control channel according to a system situation is disclosed. If a base station (BS) recognizes the system situation, establishes control information for resource allocation, and transmits the control information to a mobile station (MS), the mobile station (MS) allocates resources for transmitting uplink control information using a specific block or a specific resource distribution method according to the corresponding control information. The system situation may be changed according to the number of users contained in the BS's coverage or the usage of a multi-antenna. The variation of the system situation is actively reflected so that the uplink channel resources can be effectively used.
