  • Patent number: 10674491
    Abstract: A mobile station apparatus configures first and second timers related to first and second groups. A first group of cells uses a first uplink transmission timing, and a second group of secondary cells uses a second uplink transmission timing. When the first timer of the first group has expired: all transmission HARQ buffers in association with the cells of the first group are flushed, the second timer is considered as expired, and an uplink transmission on any cells except random access preamble transmission on the primary cell is stopped. In a case where the second timer of the second group has expired: all transmission HARQ buffers in association with the secondary cells of the second group are flushed, and an uplink transmission on any cells in the second group except random access preamble transmission on the any cells in the second group is stopped.

  • Patent number: 10674478
    Abstract: A terminal device and a base station device efficiently communicate with each other by using multiple cells. The terminal device selects a physical uplink control channel resource used to transmit an SR from a first resource on a first cell for a first subframe and a second resource on a second cell for the first subframe. In a case that neither transmission of a first HARQ-ACK using a given PUCCH format in the first cell nor transmission of second HARQ-ACK using a given PUCCH format in the second cell takes place in the first subframe, the SR is multiplexed with each of the first HARQ-ACK transmitted by using the given PUCCH format in the first subframe on the first cell and the second HARQ-ACK transmitted by using the given PUCCH format in the first subframe on the second cell.
