  • Patent number: 10932168
    Abstract: Embodiments of a Next Generation Node-B (gNB) and methods of communication are disclosed herein. The gNB may be configurable to operate as a source gNB (S-gNB). The S-gNB may transfer, from a control plane (CU-CP) of the S-gNB to a CU-CP of a target gNB (T-gNB), an XnAP handover request message that indicates an Xn handover of a User Equipment (UE) from the S-gNB to the T-gNB. The S-gNB may initiate data forwarding, from a user plane (CU-UP) of the S-gNB to a CU-UP of the T-gNB, of downlink data packets. The data forwarding may be terminated based on reception of end marker packets from a user plane function (UPF) entity. The CU-UP of the S-gNB may transfer end marker packets to the CU-UP of the S-gNB to indicate termination of the data forwarding.

  • Patent number: 10923583
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the technical field of power semiconductor devices, particularly to an insulated gate bipolar transistor with a MOS controllable hole path. According to the present invention, a MOS controllable gate structure formed by a gate dielectric layer, a MOS control gate electrode and a P-type MOS channel region are embedded in a P+ floating p-body region of the conventional IGBT structure. The MOS region is equivalent to a switch controlled by a gate voltage. When the device is turned on under a forward voltage, the potential of the p-body region is floated to store holes, reducing the saturation conduction voltage drop of the device. Under the condition of turn-off and short-circuit, the hole extracting path is provided and the Miller capacitance is lowered, thereby lowering the turn-off losses and enhancing the short-circuit withstand capability.
