  • Patent number: 10957704
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a structure and method for embedding a non-volatile memory (NVM) in a HKMG (high-? metal gate) integrated circuit which includes a high-voltage (HV) HKMG transistor. NVM devices (e.g., flash memory) are operated at high voltages for its read and write operations and hence a HV device is necessary for integrated circuits involving non-volatile embedded memory and HKMG logic circuits. Forming a HV HKMG circuit along with the HKMG periphery circuit reduces the need for additional boundaries between the HV transistor and rest of the periphery circuit. This method further helps reduce divot issue and reduce cell size.

    Abstract: Concepts and schemes pertaining to location of interleaver with low-density parity-check (LDPC) code are described. A processor of an apparatus encodes data to provide a stream of encoded data. The processor also rate matches the encoded data to provide a rate-matched stream of encoded data. The processor further interleaving the rate-matched stream of encoded data. In rate matching the encoded data, the processor buffers the stream of encoded data in a circular buffer, with the circular buffer functioning as a rate matching block that rate matches the stream of encoded data. In interleaving the rate-matched stream of encoded data, the processor performs bit-level interleaving on the rate-matched stream of encoded data to provide a stream of interleaved data.

  • Publication number: 20210044821
    Abstract: Inferring an illumination compensation flag during encoding or decoding of a video image signal using frame rate up conversion can save one bit and eliminate complexity. The illumination compensation flag can be derived from the corresponding flags of at least one bi-predictive or bi-directional prediction candidates. The flag can also be derived from some function of the flags from those candidates. Alternatively, several flags can be used for respective coding or decoding of blocks if there are more than one prediction candidate using illumination compensation.

  • Publication number: 20210021831
    Abstract: A significance-coefficient flag indicates whether a given quantized transform coefficient is equal to zero or not. To encode the significant-coefficient flags, context-based entropy coding can be used. To adapt to the characteristics of a video sequence, the context model is selected based on the statistics of the transform coefficients. In one embodiment, the non-zero probabilities of transform coefficients are compared to different thresholds to divide a transform block into several context regions, where all coefficients in a context region use the same set of context models. In another embodiment, the transform block is first divided into several context regions based on the positions of the transform coefficients, and the non-zero probabilities of transform coefficients are compared with a threshold to divide each context region into two sub-regions, where all coefficients in a sub-region share the same set of context models.

  • Patent number: 10893512
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are provided for RE allocation for UCI on PUSCH. In one novel aspect, the UE encodes UCI for transmission on PUSCH in a NR network. The UE allocates UCI REs onto the PUSCH following one or more UCI RE allocation rules including (a) using same logical allocation patterns for both CP-OFDM waveforms and DFT-S-OFDM waveforms, (b) distributing the UCI REs across a time domain of the PUSCH, and (c) distributing the UCI REs across a frequency domain for CP-OFDM or across a virtual-time domain for DFT-S-OFDM. In one embodiment, the HARQ-ACK REs are distributed across the time domain as much as possible. In another embodiment, the allocation of the HARQ-ACK REs further involves calculating the number of HARQ REs dynamically for the HARQ ACK. The number of HARQ REs is based on a weighting parameter, which is either configured or obtained through system information.
