  • Patent number: 11228394
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some systems, wireless devices may encode and decode transmissions using polar codes. A transmitting device may encode a payload based on a selected payload size. For example, the transmitting device may construct a bit vector including payload bits, parity bits, frozen bits, or some combination of these, and may modify the bits or the order of the bits based on the selected payload size. The device may generate a polar-encoded codeword based on this bit vector, and may transmit the polar-encoded codeword to a receiving device. The receiving device may blind decode the polar-encoded codeword, and may determine the correct payload size based on the decoded bit vector. For example, the device may perform decoding or may check decoded bits based on a payload size hypothesis, where the decoding may fail for any incorrect payload size hypothesis.

  • Publication number: 20220014312
    Abstract: including, Acknowledgment information sent by a receive end to a transmit end includes a blacklist, or includes a blacklist and a whitelist. In other words, the receive end notifies, in time each time, the transmit end of information of a plurality of data packets that have not been received. In this way, the transmit end can retransmit the data packets to the receive end in time. The receive end indicates the whitelist to the transmit end, so that the transmit end can learn, in time, of a data packet newly received by the receive end. This avoids a bandwidth waste caused by invalid retransmission. In each round of retransmission, the transmit end retransmits a retransmission packet a plurality of times, and time for retransmission is inconsecutive. This avoids a retransmission failure caused by consecutive packet losses, and improves a retransmission success rate.
