  • Publication number: 20210084627
    Abstract: In a radio communication system using an Orthogonal Cover Code (OCC) for a DeModulation Reference Signal (DMRS), abase station apparatus correctly receives a Physical Uplink Shared CHannel (PUSCH). If a first mode is set in which a DMRS of a PUSCH is multiplied by an OCC determined in advance or if a temporary Cell Radio Network Temporary Identifier (C-RNTI) was used for a transmission of Downlink Control Information (DCI), the DMRS of the PUSCH is multiplied by the OCC determined in advance, and if a second mode is set in which the DMRS of the PUSCH is multiplied by an OCC determined based on cyclic shift information in the DCI and if an Radio Network Temporary Identifier (RNTI) other than the temporary C-RNTI was used for a transmission of the DCI, the DMRS of the PUSCH is multiplied by the OCC determined based on the cyclic shift information in the DCI.
