Slot Format Combination

 

 

Slot format is defined in a big table in 38.213-Table 11.1.1-1: Slot formats for normal cyclic prefix. An important question is how to determine which slot format is used in a specific slot and how those information is notified to UE. This process is done by the combination of several RRC paramters shown below and DCI 2_0.

 

SlotFormatIndicator ::= SEQUENCE {

    sfi-RNTI                                     RNTI-Value,

    dci-PayloadSize                           INTEGER (1..maxSFI-DCI-PayloadSize),

                                                                     OF  SlotFormatCombinationsPerCell,

    slotFormatCombToReleaseList       SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..maxNrofAggregatedCellsPerCellGroup)) OF ServCellIndex,  

    availableRB-SetsToAddModList-r16          SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..maxNrofAggregatedCellsPerCellGroup)) OF

                                                                           AvailableRB-SetsPerCell-r16 ,

    availableRB-SetsToRelease-r16      SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..maxNrofAggregatedCellsPerCellGroup)) OF ServCellIndex

    switchTriggerToAddModList-r16     SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..4)) OF SearchSpaceSwitchTrigger-r16,

    switchTriggerToReleaseList-r16     SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..4)) OF ServCellIndex OPTIONAL,

    co-DurationsPerCellToAddModList-r16      SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..maxNrofAggregatedCellsPerCellGroup)) OF

                                                                     CO-DurationsPerCell-r16,

    co-DurationsPerCellToReleaseList-r16       SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..maxNrofAggregatedCellsPerCellGroup)) OF

     ...,

     ]]

}

 

SlotFormatCombination ::= SEQUENCE {

     slotFormats                             SEQUENCE (SIZE (1..maxNrofSlotFormatsPerCombination)) OF INTEGER (0..255)

}

 

SlotFormatCombinationId ::= INTEGER (0..maxNrofSlotFormatCombinationsPerSet-1)

 

CO-DurationsPerCell-r16 ::= SEQUENCE {

    servingCellId-r16                       ServCellIndex,

    positionInDCI-r16                      INTEGER(0..maxSFI-DCI-PayloadSize-1),

    subcarrierSpacing-r16                SubcarrierSpacing,

    co-DurationList-r16                   SEQUENCE (SIZE(1..64)) OF CO-Duration-r16

}

 

CO-Duration-r16 ::= INTEGER (0..1120)

 

AvailableRB-SetsPerCell-r16 ::= SEQUENCE {

    servingCellId-r16                           ServCellIndex,

    positionInDCI-r16                          INTEGER(0..maxSFI-DCI-PayloadSize-1)

}

 

SearchSpaceSwitchTrigger-r16 ::= SEQUENCE {

    servingCellId-r16                           ServCellIndex,

    positionInDCI-r16                          INTEGER(0..maxSFI-DCI-PayloadSize-1)

}

 

 

maxSFI-DCI-PayloadSize                                INTEGER ::= 128

maxNrofAggregatedCellsPerCellGroup                INTEGER ::= 16

maxNrofSlotFormatCombinationsPerSet             INTEGER ::= 512

maxNrofSlotFormatsPerCombination                  INTEGER ::= 256
