  • Patent number: 10674502
    Abstract: A wireless communication terminal capable of increasing the utilization efficiency of ACK/NACK resources and suppressing unnecessary PUSCH band reduction while avoiding ACK/NACK collision. The wireless communication terminal has a configuration provided with: a reception unit for receiving a control signal including ARI via an E-PDCCH set from among one or a plurality of E-PDCCH sets; a control unit for determining an offset value indicated by the ARI on the basis of whether or not a resource region that may be taken by a dynamic ACK/NACK resource corresponding to the E-PDCCH set that has received the control signal and a resource region that may be taken by a dynamic ACK/NACK resource corresponding to another E-PDCCH set overlap, and imparting an offset to the ACK/NACK resource according to the value of the ARI; and a transmission unit for transmitting the ACK/NACK signal using the determined ACK/NACK resource.

  • Patent number: 10667261
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to inhibit an increase in the amount of A/N resources, without changing the timing at which the error detection result of an SCell is notified when UL-DL configurations to be configured for each of the unit bands are different, from the timing at which the error detection result is notified when just a single unit band is configured. A control unit transmits, using a first unit band, a response signal including error detection results about data received with both the first unit band and a second unit band. In a first composition pattern set for the first unit band, an uplink communication subframe is set to be the same timing as at least an uplink communication subframe of a second composition pattern set for the second unit band.

  • Publication number: 20200075042
    Abstract: A technique for detecting a music segment in an audio signal is disclosed. A time window is set for each section in an audio signal. A maximum and a statistic of the audio signal within the time window are calculated. A density index is computed for the section using the maximum and the statistic. The density index is a measure of the statistic relative to the maximum. The section is estimated as a music segment based, at least in part, on a condition with respect to the density index.

  • Publication number: 20200017582
    Abstract: The present invention is intended to enable detection of specific human BNP fragments solely by immunoassay, and, through a ratio measurement of the human BNP fragments, provides a convenient way of providing information useful for diagnosis and prognosis of heart disease. The invention achieves this by providing an assay that uses an antibody specific to human BNP fragment (4-32)—a fragment that has not caught much attention in the past. Provided herein is an immunoassay method for human BNP fragment (4-32) in a sample, and the method uses an antibody that reacts with human BNP fragment (4-32) but does not react with full-length human BNP (1-32), human BNP fragment (3-32), and human BNP fragment (5-32). Also provided herein is an assay in which the antibody is an antibody that reacts with human BNP fragment (4-32) at a site containing the N-terminus, and that reacts with human BNP fragment (4-10).
