  • Patent number: 10448904
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a decomposition method based on basis material combination. In the present disclosure, a scanned object is divided into a plurality of regions, the basis material combinations used in each of the divided regions are different each other, and the scanned object is re-divided according to the re-determined equivalent atomic number of its each point until the change on decomposition coefficient meets certain conditions. Thereby, a decomposition method based on dynamic basis material combinations is realized, which reduces a decomposition error caused by improper selection of the basis material combination and improves the accuracy of the decomposition and substance identification of the multi-energy CT.

  • Publication number: 20190319686
    Abstract: Multiple mobility sets are maintained for nodes of radio networks. The sets comprise information such as: transmit and receive point identities; cell identities; beam identities; frequency channels; channel bandwidth; and black lists. The sets may be defined at different levels, such as network and physical (PHY) level. A network mobility set, e.g., a new-radio (NR) mobility set may, be determined by the gNB, the cell, the UE, or another device. Multiple radio access network nodes and UEs may exchange mobility set information to achieve a distributed mobility solution. A UE may monitor its orientation relative to a TRP, e.g., via use of an onboard MEMS gyroscope, and alter its beamforming parameters in response to changes in orientation and/or changes in TRP connection strength. Cell selection and reselection for beam based networks may use Single Frequency Network (SFN) broadcast of initial access signals without beam sweeping.

  • Patent number: 10446511
    Abstract: A fan-out structure and its manufacturing method are presented, relating to semiconductor techniques. The fan-out structure includes a welding pad; a welding pad extension member contacting the welding pad; and a fan-out line contacting the welding pad extension member, with an elicitation direction of the fan-out line perpendicular to an extension direction of the welding pad. This fan-out structure allows the fan-out line to be horizontally or vertically elicited from the welding pad, and thus remedies the drawbacks associated with an aslant-elicited fan-out line in conventional fan-out structures.

  • Publication number: 20190313443
    Abstract: Current approaches to transmitting uplink data in a network often require resources to be granted. In an example, a node or apparatus may configure a plurality of devices to operate in a grant-less mode in accordance with a respective grant-less access allocation. Grant-less operations may be managed, for example, to meet the reliability and latency requirements and battery life requirements for different types of devices. For example, the state transition between grant-less and grant based may be managed.

  • Patent number: 10432362
    Abstract: Hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) processes, indicators, and similar methods may be used improve new radio performance in a number of ways. For example HARQ processes may be retransmitted, even before a response is expected, a number of times. Separate acknowledgement may be provided for various code blocks within a single transport block. Multi-bit ACK/NACK signaling may be used to efficiently express the status of individual code blocks or groups of code blocks within a transmission block. Grantless transmissions may be acknowledged implicitly, e.g., via responses comprising downlink control information or sent via a physical hybrid automatic repeat request indicator channel.

  • Publication number: 20190288809
    Abstract: Flexibly configured containers consisting of resources within time-frequency blocks may be used to support multiple numerologies in new radio architectures. Uplink control may be defined in resources within a container, or in dedicated resources, by various nodes. Sounding reference signal resources may be dynamically configured for each numerology. The sequence length may be adapted, as well as the time domain location of symbols. Time, frequency, and orthogonal resources may be allocated via a downlink control channel or a radio resource control. Sounding reference signals may be pre-coded, and pre-coding weights may be based on a codebook or non-codebook approaches, e.g., via a radio resource control or a downlink RRC or DL control channel. Pre-coded sounding reference signals may be adapted to user equipment antenna configuration. Further, NR-SRS may be used as UL demodulation RS (DM-RS).
