  • Patent number: 10841952
    Abstract: A transmitter, such as a base station, identifies a potential collision between a first set of resources configured for a CORESET for a receiver and a second set of resources configured for a PT-RS for the receiver. The apparatus may determine whether colliding resources in the CORESET are configured/used for a control transmission or a data transmission. The apparatus punctures the PT-RS based on whether the colliding resources in the CORESET are configured/used for the control transmission (e.g., PDCCH). For example, the apparatus may puncture the PT-RS only for resource blocks of the CORESET colliding with the control transmission without puncturing the PT-RS over an entire set of the colliding resources configured for the CORESET. A receiver may similarly identify potential collisions and determine whether PT-RS will be punctured based on whether the colliding resources in the CORESET are configured/used for a control transmission or a data transmission.

  • Patent number: 10833705
    Abstract: A wireless device (e.g., a base station or user equipment (UE)) may encode a codeword using a polar code for transmission over a wireless channel. The device may identify a set of bit locations of the polar code for a set of information bits based on a bit index reliability sequence. The bit index reliability sequence may be based on applying an ordered combination of a universal partial order, an analytical method, and a simulation. The bit index reliability sequence may be determined based on a binary bit weighting for the set of bit channels that applies one or more weighting factors. In some cases, the device may store the bit index reliability sequence in a lookup table for encoding, decoding, or both. A device receiving the transmitted codeword may similarly utilize the bit index reliability sequence to decode the codeword and determine the transmitted information bits.

  • Publication number: 20200351125
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure disclose techniques for the indication of the allocation of the downlink (DL) demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) ports for the data channel in NR communications. In some examples, the channel state information (CSI) reference signal (CSI-RS) may be associated with a corresponding DM-RS for a DL data channel. The transmitting device, in some examples, may further transmit a notification that provides resource allocations (e.g., port allocations) that minimize the redundant information that is required to be transmitted from the base station to the user equipment (UE) when the DM-RS port allocation is the same as the CSI-RS port allocation received by the UE in an earlier time slot.

  • Publication number: 20200351878
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described Techniques described may be utilized to avoid errors caused by resource allocation calculations, which may be indicated via higher layer signaling and/or determined within DCI. A base station may transmit downlink control information indicating resource allocation types to avoid errors. In other cases, the UE and/or base station may designate a particular resource block group size to avoid the potential errors. The UE and/or base station may calculate a number of resource blocks groups for a bandwidth part and allocate the size of the resource block group based on the calculation. The UE and/or base station may conduct a comparison between a bandwidth part size and a resource block group size to determine whether to designate a different resource block group size to avoid the errors. Similar techniques may be utilized in allocating resources for precoding resource block groups.

  • Publication number: 20200351045
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. Generally, the described techniques provide for determining a suitable pattern for transmitting reference signals used for positioning on allocated resources. In particular, the pattern may be used to assign the reference signals to frequency tones across multiple symbols such that the frequency tones to which the reference signals are mapped in at least two consecutive symbols are non-adjacent (e.g., separated by at least one frequency tone). In some cases, a wireless device may determine the pattern used to assign reference signals used for positioning autonomously (e.g., based on configured algorithms or a look-up table), and, in other cases, a wireless device (e.g., a user equipment (UE)) may determine the pattern used to assign reference signals used for positioning based on a configuration received from another wireless device (e.g., a base station).

  • Publication number: 20200351027
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some systems, a base station may interrupt a user equipment (UE) during transport block (TB) encoding. The UE may cancel transmission (e.g., suppress processing) of a TB based on the interruption, such that a first subset of code blocks is encoded and a second subset is unencoded. In some cases, the UE may receive a re-transmission request for a code block including cyclic redundancy check (CRC) bits for the TB, where the CRC bits are not prepared. In one example, the UE may modify the CRC bits (e.g., set them to a common value, drop them, etc.) to reduce processing time. In another example, the base station may request re-transmission of all preempted code blocks, supporting TB CRC calculation. In another example, the base station or UE may extend a processing timeline for the re-transmission to support TB CRC calculation.

  • Publication number: 20200351813
    Abstract: This disclosure provides methods, devices, and systems for beam group reporting for positioning in new radio (NR) wireless communications systems. In some wireless communications systems, multiple PRS resources, e.g., a beam group, received by a user equipment (UE) from the same network entity may be used to produce a combined Time of Arrival (TOA) measurement for the reference or target to derive an Reference Signal Time Difference (RSTD) estimate. The UE provides to a network entity an indication of the PRS resources in the beam group, which may be specifically or generally identified. Additionally, parameters associated with the beam group are provided, such as a relative quality of the TOA measurement for each PRS resource in the subset, a spread of the TOA measurements in the subset, a relative signal strength of each PRS resource in the subset, or a spread of the signal strength in the subset.

  • Publication number: 20200344712
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatuses for resolving aliasing ambiguities produced when using channel state information reference signal, a sounding reference signal (SRS) or other transmission as a positioning reference signal (PRS) occupying a subset of tones of a PRS bandwidth. The aliasing ambiguity results in a plurality of different possible positioning measurements, such as time of arrival (TOA), reference signal timing difference (RSTD), or reception to transmission difference (Rx?Tx). The aliasing ambiguity may be resolved using a previous position estimate that may be used to produce an approximation of the expected positioning measurement. A position estimate may be generated using a multiple stage PRS configuration, in which one or more stages provide a coarse position estimate that has no ambiguity, which can be used to resolve the ambiguity of a more accurate position estimate resulting from the PRS signal.
