  • Publication number: 20190380123
    Abstract: A design is provided for spatially multiplexing uplink channels. A user equipment (UE) detects that a Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) and a Sounding Reference Signal (SRS) are to be transmitted simultaneously. The UE decides to spatially multiplex the PUCCH and the SRS for simultaneous transmission via different sets of one or more antennas. The UE determines time and frequency resources for the PUCCH and the SRS to avoid collision of at least a portion of the PUCCH with the SRS. The UE transmits the spatially multiplexed PUCCH and SRS using the determined time and frequency resources.

  • Publication number: 20190378913
    Abstract: Embodiments described in this disclosure relate to formation of a gate structure of a device, such as in a replacement gate process, and the device formed thereby. In some examples, after an interfacial layer and a gate dielectric layer are deposited, a rapid anneal process, such as laser anneal or flash lamp anneal process, is performed in a controlled ambient nitrogen-containing environment to form a nitrided portion in the gate dielectric layer. The nitrided portion passivates the defects at the surface of the gate dielectric layer and can serve as a barrier to prevent etchant chemistry and defects/dopants from the subsequent gate stack layers from affecting or diffusing through the gate dielectric layer. Particularly, the rapid anneal process is performed on a millisecond scale to confine nitrogen atoms in the gate dielectric layer without diffusing into the underlying interfacial dielectric and/or any neighboring structure such as fin.

  • Publication number: 20190376877
    Abstract: A portable gas detecting device includes at least one detecting chamber, at least one gas sensor and at least one actuator. The gas sensor is disposed in the detecting chamber and configured for monitoring gas inside the detecting chamber. The actuator is disposed in the detecting chamber and includes a piezoelectric actuator. When an actuating signal is applied to the piezoelectric actuator and the piezoelectric actuator generates a resonance effect, the gas outside the detecting chamber is introduced into the detecting chamber for sampling. The actuator is driven by an instantaneous sampling pulse to control a trace of gas to flow into the detecting chamber for forming a stable airflow environment. In the stable airflow environment, a gas molecule is dissolved in or bonded to a reaction material on a surface of the gas sensor for reacting.

  • Publication number: 20190379437
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described that support a low peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) precoded reference signal design for multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) transmissions. A user equipment (UE) may identify multiple sets of symbols associated with different reference signal waveforms, where each reference signal waveform may be associated with a low PAPR. In some cases, different single-carrier reference signal waveforms may be mapped to subsets of frequency resources through frequency division multiplexing (FDM) for a transmission on a single antenna. However, the addition of single-carrier waveforms through FDM for a transmission via an antenna may result in an uplink transmission having a high PAPR (e.g., as compared to single-carrier waveforms). The UE may reduce the PAPR of the uplink transmission by multiplexing the reference signal waveforms in the time domain (e.g., using time division multiplexing (TDM)).

    Abstract: A formation tank includes a tank body and a release film. The tank body includes a bottom plate and a tank wall. One face of the bottom plate is an inner bottom surface, and at least one engagement structure is formed on the inner bottom surface. The tank wall protrudes from the inner bottom surface and surrounds a periphery of the bottom plate. The release film is attached on the inner bottom surface and the release film is mortise-and-tenon connected to the engagement structure. An engagement structure is arranged on the bottom plate to improve an engagement force between the bottom plate and the release film. Accordingly, the release film is prevented from being detached, and therefore durability of the release film is also improved.
