  • Patent number: 11006376
    Abstract: Techniques for wireless communication are described. A method of wireless communication at a user equipment (UE) includes receiving a synchronization signal within a synchronization signal (SS) block; receiving at least a portion of a physical broadcast channel (PBCH) of the SS block, the PBCH comprising a self-decodable portion and an outside portion; and decoding the PBCH based at least in part on receiving the self-decodable portion of the PBCH. The synchronization signal has a first bandwidth. The self-decodable portion of the PBCH has a second bandwidth substantially within the first bandwidth. The outside portion having a bandwidth that is outside of the second bandwidth and within a PBCH bandwidth, the PBCH bandwidth being greater than the first bandwidth.

  • Patent number: 11006403
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to determining a transmission configuration indication (TCI) state for receiving a multi-transmission point (TRP) communication. A receiving device receives a configuration message indicating a lowest control resource set identifier (CORESET ID) for receiving one or more downlink control information (DCI) and determines whether a state of the receiving device is within a scheduling threshold duration for decoding DCI. The receiving device then determines a TCI state for receiving data based on a TCI state associated with the lowest CORESET ID if the state of the receiving device is within the scheduling threshold duration, wherein the TCI state associated with the lowest CORESET ID indicates one or more sets of quasi co-location (QCL) parameters. The receiving device then receives the data from one or more transmission points (TRPs) based on the one or more sets of QCL parameters.
