Application: Multiple panel transmissions in wireless communication systems (Patent ID: US20240106513A1)

The patent filed by ZTE Corp. discloses methods and systems for using multiple panels for transmission in wireless communication systems, particularly in high-frequency bands. The described embodiments focus on enabling efficient operation by a wireless device in such systems. The method involves determining Sounding Reference Signal (SRS) resource sets configured by a network node and transmitting a transmission based on these sets. Additionally, the method includes reporting capability values, parameters, and receiving corresponding information from the network node to facilitate uplink transmissions and scheduling.

Furthermore, the patent details various aspects of the method, such as determining the number of SRS resource sets, layers of a Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) transmission, and other parameters based on reported information. It also covers the configuration, activation, and indication of SRS resource sets, as well as the use of phase tracking reference signals and control information in wireless communication. The disclosed device for wireless communication includes a processor that performs the functions related to determining SRS resource sets and transmitting based on them, as outlined in the method claims.
