  • Publication number: 20230036232
    Abstract: When downlink data allocation is indicated in an ePDCCH, this terminal device can determine PUCCH resources to be used in notification of response signals indicating results of error detection of downlink data without imposing scheduling restrictions on future DL subframes. In this device, an extraction unit receives downlink data on multiple unit bands. A CRC unit detects errors in the downlink data. A response signal generation unit generates a response signal by using the results of error detection of the downlink data obtained by the CRC unit. The control unit arranges the response signal in the PUCCH resources corresponding to the current DL subframe.

  • Patent number: 11528738
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for dynamically indicating a TDD reconfiguration to the mobile station by encoding the dynamic TDD re-configuration indication into the DCI or CRC calculated for the DCI. In one embodiment, the TDD configuration indication is implicitly encoded as an RNTI into the CRC, when scrambling the CRC for the DCI with a TDD-RNTI. In another embodiment, the TDD configuration indication is part of the DCI payload, while the CRC for the DCI is scrambled with a cell identifier, identifying the target cell for which the dynamic TDD re-configuration is to be applied. In still another embodiment, the TDD configuration indication is part of the DCI payload, where the DCI payload further includes an invalid parameter indicating to the mobile station that the DCI carries the TDD configuration indication.

  • Publication number: 20220295475
    Abstract: The present invention pertains to a terminal device, which, when ARQ is used for communication that uses an uplink unit band and a plurality of downlink unit bands associated with the uplink unit band, and when a transmission mode that supports up to 2 TB in a PCell is set in the terminal, is capable of reducing the amount of signaling from a base station while eliminating a lack of PUCCH resources when semi-permanent scheduling (SPS) is used in the PCell. A control unit in this device selects one value among values obtained by adding 1 to four PUCCH resource indexes, which have been preset for PUCCH resource 1 by the base station, on the basis of values for transmission power control information (TPC command for PUCCH) in a PDCCH, for which notification has been received at the start of SPS.

  • Publication number: 20220294577
    Abstract: Provided is a terminal device with which deterioration in hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) retransmission performance can be inhibited by continuing a downlink (DL) HARQ process for DL data before and after changing the uplink link-DL configuration. In this device, a decoder stores, in a retransmission buffer, DL data transmitted from a base station, and decodes the DL data, and a wireless transmitter transmits a response signal generated using a DL-data-error detection result. A soft buffer is partitioned into a plurality of regions for each retransmission process on the basis of the highest values among retransmission process numbers respectively stated in a plurality of configuration patterns which can be set in the terminal.

  • Patent number: 11418309
    Abstract: In the present disclosure, even if different UL-DL configurations are set for a plurality of unit bands, notification timing of error detection results for SCell is not dispersed complicatedly, and the processing relating to the error detection results can be simplified. At the reference notification timing of a response signal with respect to downlink data of a second unit band, if a sub-frame of the second unit band is an uplink communication sub-frame and a sub-frame of a first unit band is a downlink communication sub-frame, a control unit transmits the response signal with respect to the downlink data in a specific uplink communication sub-frame (for example, #2 or #7) set in the first unit band.

  • Patent number: 11395268
    Abstract: Provided are a wireless communication terminal device and a control channel forming method with which, in the forming of a control channel for transmitting control information including an ACK/NACK and CSI (channel state information), wasteful use of resources is reduced compared to that in related art. In the case where CSI is transmitted independently, and in the case where CSI and an ACK/NACK are transmitted at the same time, the same format is used to form a control channel. Furthermore, in the case where an ACK/NACK is transmitted independently, another format is used if a component carrier (CC) number is equal to or less than 2, and the same format is used if the CC number is equal to or greater than 3.

  • Publication number: 20210372978
    Abstract: A system for calibrating a moisture sensor encompasses a processing unit (341). The processing unit (341) includes a reference data obtaining LCKT (345), a subject data obtaining LCKT (346) and a relationship calculating LCKT (347). The reference data obtaining LCKT (345) obtains reference data, after injecting water-vapor with known concentrations into an analyzer. The subject data obtaining LCKT (346) measures subject data indicating temporal variation of output-responses of a subject sensor element of the analyzer under test. The relationship calculating LCKT (347) compares the subject data with the reference data, and calculates relationships between the output-responses of the subject sensor element and the known concentrations.

  • Publication number: 20210185673
    Abstract: Provided is a terminal apparatus that, when two terminals having mutually different subframe structure patterns are coexistent, can suppress DCI scheduling constraints of those terminals in a base station. In a terminal, a signal separation unit separates, from a received signal, both a response signal assigned to a first resource determined on the basis of a number of resources associated with the first subframes in which the signal was received and downstream control information assigned to a second resource. It should be noted that at a timing when both a first structure pattern that has been set in the terminal and a second structure pattern that has been set in another terminal that cannot change the setting of the structure pattern are the first subframes, the signal separation unit uses a number of resources associated with the first subframes of the second structure pattern.
