  • Patent number: 11916849
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may identify a full-duplexing rule that indicates to refrain from using a transmission dropping rule for transmission direction conflicts that occur between uplink and downlink transmissions in a same symbol. The UE may receive a control message scheduling transmission of a message during a symbol, where a transmission direction conflict arises between a first transmission direction of the message and a second transmission direction of the symbol. For example, the UE may identify a transmission direction conflict between an uplink transmission direction of the message and a downlink transmission direction of the symbol. The UE may communicate the message during the symbol based on the full-duplexing rule. The described techniques may enable the UE to attain reduced latency and higher throughput based on reducing a number of transmissions dropped by the UE.

  • Patent number: 11916713
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A communication device, such as, a base station and a UE may support transmitting and receiving information bits according to one or more index modulation schemes. For example, the communication device may support conveying information bits using a reference signal index modulation scheme, which uses reference signals transmissions using particular resources or reference signal sequences, or both, to convey the information bits. The communication device may improve reference signal resource usage by supporting a multi-mode reference signal index modulation scheme, which utilizes all reference signal resources to convey the information bits. By using the multi-mode reference signal index modulation scheme, the communication device may, as a result, include features for improvements to conveying information bits, among other benefits.
