Application: Electronic apparatus, base station, communication system, method, and storage medium (Patent ID: US20240098702A1)

The patent filed by Toshiba Corp. describes an electronic apparatus in a base station that generates a second control signal based on allocation information stored in memory, adds this signal to a physical layer signal, and transmits the resulting synthesis signal to another layer. The apparatus is designed to facilitate communication between different layers within the base station, allowing for efficient allocation of radio resources for control signals.

The claims associated with the patent detail the specific functionalities and configurations of the electronic apparatus, including the processing of scheduling requests, acquisition of allocation information, and selection of timing based on estimation results. The apparatus is part of a larger base station setup that includes various layers and units for wireless communication with terminals and core networks. The method and computer program outlined in the patent aim to streamline the process of generating and transmitting control signals within the base station, ultimately improving the overall efficiency and performance of the communication system.
