  • Publication number: 20240196419
    Abstract: Systems and methods for sidelink (SL) resource pool resource use by a user equipment (UE) are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, when the UE performs contiguous partial sensing in addition to periodic partial sensing, the UE performs one of resource selection and resource re-evaluation based a size of a time gap between a slot where the UE has SL data and a first slot of periodic-based candidate slots within a resource selection window. In other embodiments, the UE performs contiguous partial sensing without additional periodic partial sensing in the case where a packet delay budget (PDB) for the SL data is greater than a threshold. In some embodiments, the UE performs periodic partial sensing for resource re-evaluation and/or resource pre-emption according to a set of periodicity values Preserve,re-ev (and optionally period definition data Kre-ev). Restrictions on the use of random resource selection by the UE are also described.

    Abstract: PUCCH carrier switching at a UE may include decoding an RRC configuration including a time-domain pattern indicating a reference cell and a target PUCCH cell for one or more PUCCH transmissions at a given point in time. The reference cell may include a reference cell slot numerology and the target PUCCH cell may include a target PUCCH cell slot numerology. A slot for PUCCH transmissions may be determined based on the reference cell slot numerology. The determined slot may be used for transmission of at least one of an SR, a CSI, and a HARQ-ACK. The determined slot of the reference cell may be mapped to a corresponding slot of the target PUCCH cell. A PUCCH resource may be determined for performing a PUCCH transmission using the corresponding slot of the target PUCCH cell. The PUCCH resource determination may be based on a PUCCH configuration of the target PUCCH cell.

  • Publication number: 20240195572
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide for physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) monitoring adaptation. A user equipment (UE) may monitor a default search space set group (SSSG) for downlink control information (DCI) from a base station in the PDCCH. In response to a first DCI trigger, the UE switches from monitoring the default SSSG to monitoring a first non-default SSSG associated with a first timer. In response to a second DCI trigger, the UE switches from monitoring the first non-default SSSG to monitoring a second non-default SSSG associated with a second timer. The first non-default SSSG may be a non-empty SSSG including a search space set with at least one associated search space. The second non-default SSSG may be an empty SSSG with no associated search space to emulate PDCCH skipping.

  • Publication number: 20240195553
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may report a time-domain model and parameters to indicate how one or more characteristics, such as a phase, of ports used to transmit reference signals can change across time. For example, the UE may determine one or more sets of transmission parameters associated with a reference signal type, where the one or more sets of transmission parameters can enable a receiving device to bundle reference signals of the reference signal type. The UE may transit an indication of these one or more sets of transmission parameters to the receiving device, where the indication can be associated with how a characteristic of the ports of the UE varies across time. Based on the indication of one or more sets of transmission parameters, the receiving device may receive reference signals and bundle (e.g., combine) the reference signals.

  • Publication number: 20240195291
    Abstract: A power converter includes a power factor correction (PFC) circuit and a controller. The controller acquires a switching frequency based on an instantaneous value of the input voltage, and acquires an upper limit frequency and a lower limit frequency based on an effective value of an input current. When the controller determines that the effective value is greater than a medium load threshold, an operation mode of the PFC circuit is switched from a critical conduction mode or a triangular current mode to a continuous conduction mode based on the switching frequency being less than the lower limit frequency, and to limit the switching frequency to the lower limit frequency. Furthermore, the controller adjusts the lower limit frequency between a first lower limit frequency and a second lower limit frequency based on the increase or decrease of the effective value.

  • Publication number: 20240194760
    Abstract: Some implementations described herein provide a semiconductor device and methods of formation. The semiconductor device includes a gate-all-around transistor having one or more dielectric regions that include or more dielectric gases. The dielectric regions may include a first dielectric region between epitaxial regions (e.g., source/drain regions) and a first portion of a gate structure of the gate-all-around transistor.

  • Patent number: 12010662
    Abstract: Some techniques and apparatuses described herein provide generation of a set of orthogonal sequences for transmission of a signal including a payload using an orthogonal base sequence in a time domain. In one example, the orthogonal base sequence in the time domain may be a pi over 2 (pi/2) binary phase shift keying (BPSK) sequence in the time domain, such as prior to transform precoding for transmission. Some techniques and apparatuses described herein provide for the set of orthogonal sequences to be generated such that the set of orthogonal sequences are orthogonal within a symbol (e.g., an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing symbol) by applying an intra-symbol orthogonal cover code (OCC). Applying the intra-symbol OCC provides intra-symbol orthogonality. Thus, a peak to average power ratio of a user equipment is reduced for uplink transmissions and intra-symbol orthogonality is preserved.
