  • Publication number: 20220295460
    Abstract: To solve a problem that although the increase of the number of frequency blocks by allocating discontinuous subcarriers (RBs) as in OFDM enables an increase in multi-diversity effect and an improvement in throughput, the number of RB allocation patterns increases with the increase of the number of frequency blocks, resulting in an increase in the amount of information relating to the allocated RBs, the resource block allocation unit is determined when resource blocks discontinuous on the frequency axis are allocated to a terminal, and the number of bits of scheduling information indicating the allocated resource blocks by using Tree Based is set to the number of bits corresponding to the determined allocation unit.

  • Publication number: 20220244638
    Abstract: A permanent resist, such as TMMF, is used when patterning conductive material on a substrate, enabling lines that have a higher line-to-space ratio (L/S) or a higher aspect ratio (T/L) or both. Pattern density can thus be increased, allowing for improved performance (e.g., greater efficiency, in the case of transformer coil patterning) and greater heat dissipation. As examples, the permanent-resist-based patterning fabrication methods can be used to create transformer coils within an integrated circuit (IC) module, or a routable lead frame for one or more IC dies.

  • Patent number: 11405901
    Abstract: Provided is a technique capable of reporting resource block allocation information with no waste when an allocated resource block is reported, because in the current LTE downlink, the waste of the amount of resource allocation information increases in some cases since a restriction is imposed such that 37-bit fixed scheduling information is transmitted. A resource block group consisting of at least one or more resource blocks continuous on the frequency axis is allocated to a terminal, and the number of controlling signals for reporting allocation information indicating the allocated resource blocks is determined.
