  • Patent number: 11782119
    Abstract: Procedures are disclosed to enable a wireless device to determine its alignment direction toward a base station or another device in 5G or 6G, using a “phased beam-alignment pulse”, which is a transmitted pulse having phase modulation that varies with angle. For example, the pulse may be transmitted spanning 360 degrees of angle, and may be phase modulated varying from 0 to 360 degrees of phase in the same angular range. A user device can receive the phased beam-alignment pulse and immediately determine, from the phase, the alignment angle toward the transmitter. In another embodiment, the transmitter transmits a uniform, non-directional pulse, and the receiver receives it using an antenna configured to impose an angle-dependent phase shift, thereby indicating the alignment direction. With either method, wireless entities can align their beams rapidly and efficiently, using just one or two resource elements, without complex encoding or time-consuming handshaking.

  • Patent number: 11757609
    Abstract: A circuit and method enables multiple serializer/deserializer (SerDes) data lanes of a physical layer device (PHY) to operate across a broad range of diversified data rates that are independent from lane to lane. The multiple SerDes data lanes may operate at data rates independent from one another. A single low frequency clock is input to the PHY. A frequency of the single low frequency clock is increased via a common integer-N phase-locked loop (PLL) on the PHY to produce a higher frequency clock. Each of the SerDes data lanes is operated, independently, as a fractional-N PLL that employs the higher frequency clock. Use of the common integer-N PLL enables modulation noise of the fractional-N PLLs to be suppressed by moving the modulation noise to higher frequencies where a level of the modulation noise is filtered, avoiding use of high risk noise cancellation techniques.

  • Patent number: 11646928
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Pre-discrete Fourier transform (DFT) time-domain spreading codes may be applied for UE multiplexing for uplink control information (e.g., over shared resources of an uplink slot). For example, a moderate number of UEs may be multiplexed within the same slot by having each UE spread modulation symbols before DFT-spreading by different spreading code. For orthogonality across UEs, the pre-DFT spreading codes may be selected as orthogonal cover codes (OCCs). The spreading sequences can be generated from a set of any orthogonal sequences or generated from unitary matrices. In some cases, orthogonality in the time domain may be kept as well as a frequency division multiplexed (FDM) structure in the frequency domain. For such property, a Fourier basis OCC design may be used. In some other examples, a Hadamard matrix based OCC design may be used.

In some systems, a user equipment (UE) or a base station, or both, may generate a set of orthogonal sequences that the UE may use to convey a payload of a number of bits based on a product of an orthogonal matrix and a cell-specific sequence. The UE or the base station, or both, may select a subset of the set of orthogonal sequences based on the number of bits in the payload, and the UE may construct a codebook including the subset of orthogonal sequences. The UE may select an orthogonal sequence from the constructed codebook based on the bits in the payload. The UE may transmit the payload including the number of bits to the base station using the selected orthogonal sequence.

  • Patent number: 11469809
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and computer program products for a user equipment receiving CSI-RS and computing channel support information. Based on the CSI, the UE derives tap locations of channel support, depending on the observed channel and used subcarrier spacing. The deriving can additionally be done in relation to power class and window size. The UE apprises a base station of those tap locations of the channel support and also informs the base station of the strongest tap locations, which can be done in various ways comprising a bit mask. Methods, apparatus, and computer program products for a base station to send CSI-RS to a UE for computing CSI feedback. The CSI-RS resources can be for one or multiple transmit receive points. The base station receives back an indication of tap locations and a bit mask and builds information on tap locations by combining that received indication and bit mask.
