7.1.7.1 DL-SCH transport block size selection

7.1.7.1.1 DL-SCH transport block size selection / DCI format 1 / RA type 0

7.1.7.1.1.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state }

ensure that {

when { UE on PDCCH receives DCI format 1 indicating Resource Allocation Type 0, a resource block assignment correspondent to physical resource blocks and a modulation and coding scheme }

then { UE decodes the received transport block of size correspondent to the read and and forwards it to higher layers }

}

7.1.7.1.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.212, clause 5.3.3.1.2; TS 36.213, clauses 7.1.6.1, 7.1.7, 7.1.7.1, 7.1.7.2 and 7.1.7.2.1; and TS 36.306 clause 4.1 and 4.1A.

[TS 36.212 clause 5.3.3.1.2]

DCI format 1 is used for the scheduling of one PDSCH codeword.

The following information is transmitted by means of the DCI format 1:

– Resource allocation header (resource allocation type 0 / type 1) – 1 bit as defined in section 7.1.6 of [3]

If downlink bandwidth is less than or equal to 10 PRBs, there is no resource allocation header and resource allocation type 0 is assumed.

– Resource block assignment:

– For resource allocation type 0 as defined in section 7.1.6.1 of [3]:

– bits provide the resource allocation

where the value of P depends on the number of DL resource blocks as indicated in section 7.1.6 of [3]

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

If the number of information bits in format 1 is equal to that for format 0/1A, one bit of value zero shall be appended to format 1.

If the number of information bits in format 1 belongs to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1, one or more zero bit(s) shall be appended to format 1 until the payload size of format 1 does not belong to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1 and not equal to that of format 0/1A.

Table 5.3.3.1.2-1: Ambiguous Sizes of Information Bits

{12, 14, 16 ,20, 24, 26, 32, 40, 44, 56}

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.6.1]

In resource allocations of type 0, resource block assignment information includes a bitmap indicating the resource block groups (RBGs) that are allocated to the scheduled UE where a RBG is a set of consecutive physical resource blocks (PRBs). Resource block group size (P) is a function of the system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.1-1. The total number of RBGs () for downlink system bandwidth of PRBs is given by where of the RBGs are of size P and if then one of the RBGs is of size. The bitmap is of size bits with one bitmap bit per RBG such that each RBG is addressable. The RBGs shall be indexed in the order of increasing frequency and non-increasing RBG sizes starting at the lowest frequency. The order of RBG to bitmap bit mapping is in such way that RBG 0 to RBG are mapped to MSB to LSB of the bitmap. The RBG is allocated to the UE if the corresponding bit value in the bitmap is 1, the RBG is not allocated to the UE otherwise.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7]

To determine the modulation order and transport block size(s) in the physical downlink shared channel, the UE shall first

  • read the 5-bit “modulation and coding scheme” field () in the DCI

and second if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

else

  • set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator to the total number of allocated PRBs based on the procedure defined in Section 7.1.6.

if the transport block is transmitted in DwPTS of the special subframe in frame structure type 2, then

set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator ,

else, set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator .

The UE may skip decoding a transport block in an initial transmission if the effective channel code rate is higher than 0.930, where the effective channel code rate is defined as the number of downlink information bits (including CRC bits) divided by the number of physical channel bits on PDSCH. If the UE skips decoding, the physical layer indicates to higher layer that the transport block is not successfully decoded. For the special subframe configurations 0 and 5 with normal CP or configurations 0 and 4 with extended CP, shown in table 4.2-1 [3], there shall be no PDSCH transmission in DwPTS of the special subframe.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.1]

The UE shall use = 2 if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI, otherwise, the UE shall useand Table 7.1.7.1-1 to determine the modulation order () used in the physical downlink shared channel.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.2]

If the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

– for DCI format 1A:

– the UE shall set the TBS index () equal to and determine its TBS by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1.

else

– for, the UE shall first determine the TBS index () usingand Table 7.1.7.1-1 except if the transport block is disabled in DCI formats 2 and 2A as specified below. For a transport block that is not mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1. For a transport block that is mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.2.

– for, the TBS is assumed to be as determined from DCI transported in the latest PDCCH for the same transport block using . If there is no latest PDCCH for the same transport block using, and if the initial PDSCH for the same transport block is semi-persistently scheduled, the TBS shall be determined from the most recent semi-persistent scheduling assignment PDCCH.

– In DCI formats 2 and 2A a transport block is disabled if and if rvidx = 1 otherwise the transport block is enabled.

The NDI and HARQ process ID, as signalled on PDCCH, and the TBS, as determined above, shall be delivered to higher layers.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.2.1]

For, the TBS is given by the (,) entry of Table 7.1.7.2.1-1.

NOTE 1: In carrier aggregation operation, the DL-SCH processing capability can be shared by the UE with that of MCH received from a serving cell. If the total eNB scheduling for DL-SCH and an MCH in one serving cell at a given TTI is larger than the defined processing capability, the prioritization between DL-SCH and MCH is left up to UE implementation.

NOTE 2: Within one TTI, a UE indicating category 0 shall be able to receive up to 1000 bits for a transport block associated with C-RNTI/Semi-Persistent Scheduling C-RNTI/P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI and up to 2216 bits for another transport block associated with P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI.

NOTE 3: The UE indicating category x shall reach the value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of category x. The UE shall determine the required value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of the corresponding category, based on its capabilities (i.e. CA band combination, MIMO, Modulation scheme). If the UE capability of CA band combination, MIMO and modulation scheme supported can exceed the upper limit of the defined range, the UE shall support the maximum value of the defined range indicated by "Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI" of the corresponding category.

Note 1. Each PDCP SDU is limited to 1500 octets (to keep below maximum SDU size of ESM as specified in TS 24.301 clause 9.9.4.12).

The PDCP SDU size of each PDCP SDU is

PDCP SDU size = (TBsize – N*PDCP header size – AMD PDU header size – MAC header size – Size of Timing Advance – RLC Status PDU size) / N, where

PDCP header size is 16 bits for the RLC AM and 12-bit SN case;
AMD PDU header size is CEIL[(16+(N-1)*12)/8] bytes which includes 16 standard AM header and (N-1) Length indicators; and

MAC header size = 40 bits as MAC header size can be
1) R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (16 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU)R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU) = for AMD PDU 8 + 8 + 16bits = 32 bits
Or
2) R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (24 bits for MAC SDU for AMD PDU, Note: Length can be of 2 bytes depending upon the size of AMD PDU)+ R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU) = 8+24 + 8 bits = 40 bits
Therefore Maximum MAC header size can be 40 bits

Size of Timing Advance MAC CE is 8 bits (if no Timing Advance and/or RLC status needs to be sent, padding will occur instead)
RLC Status PDU size = 16 bits

This gives:

PDCP SDU size = 8*FLOOR((TBsize – N*16- 8*CEIL((16+(N-1)*12)/8) – 64)/(8*N)) bits

Note 2: According to TS 36.213 Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 and the final PDCP SDU size formula in Note 1, the smallest TBsize that can be tested is 104 bits.

}

7.1.7.1.2.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.212, clause 5.3.3.1.2; TS 36.213, clauses 7.1.6.2, 7.1.7, 7.1.7.1, 7.1.7.2 and 7.1.7.2.1; and TS 36.306 clause 4.1 and 4.1A.

[TS 36.212 clause 5.3.3.1.2]

DCI format 1 is used for the scheduling of one PDSCH codeword.

The following information is transmitted by means of the DCI format 1:

– Resource allocation header (resource allocation type 0 / type 1) – 1 bit as defined in section 7.1.6 of [3]

If downlink bandwidth is less than or equal to 10 PRBs, there is no resource allocation header and resource allocation type 0 is assumed.

– Resource block assignment:

– For resource allocation type 1 as defined in section 7.1.6.2 of [3]:

– bits of this field are used as a header specific to this resource allocation type to indicate the selected resource blocks subset

– 1 bit indicates a shift of the resource allocation span

– bits provide the resource allocation

where the value of P depends on the number of DL resource blocks as indicated in section 7.1.6 of [3]

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

If the number of information bits in format 1 is equal to that for format 0/1A, one bit of value zero shall be appended to format 1.

If the number of information bits in format 1 belongs to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1, one or more zero bit(s) shall be appended to format 1 until the payload size of format 1 does not belong to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1 and not equal to that of format 0/1A.

Table 5.3.3.1.2-1: Ambiguous Sizes of Information Bits

{12, 14, 16 ,20, 24, 26, 32, 40, 44, 56}

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.6.2]

In resource allocations of type 1, a resource block assignment information of size indicates to a scheduled UE the PRBs from the set of PRBs from one of P RBG subsets. Also P is the RBG size associated with the system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.1-1. A RBG subset , where , consists of every th RBG starting from RBG . The resource block assignment information consists of three fields [4].

The first field with bits is used to indicate the selected RBG subset among RBG subsets.

The second field with one bit is used to indicate a shift of the resource allocation span within a subset. A bit value of 1 indicates shift is triggered. Shift is not triggered otherwise.

The third field includes a bitmap, where each bit of the bitmap addresses a single PRB in the selected RBG subset in such a way that MSB to LSB of the bitmap are mapped to the PRBs in the increasing frequency order. The PRB is allocated to the UE if the corresponding bit value in the bit field is 1, the PRB is not allocated to the UE otherwise. The portion of the bitmap used to address PRBs in a selected RBG subset has size and is defined as

The addressable PRB numbers of a selected RBG subset start from an offset, to the smallest PRB number within the selected RBG subset, which is mapped to the MSB of the bitmap. The offset is in terms of the number of PRBs and is done within the selected RBG subset. If the value of the bit in the second field for shift of the resource allocation span is set to 0, the offset for RBG subset is given by . Otherwise, the offset for RBG subset is given by , where the LSB of the bitmap is justified with the highest PRB number within the selected RBG subset. is the number of PRBs in RBG subset and can be calculated by the following equation,

Consequently, when RBG subset is indicated, bit for in the bitmap field indicates PRB number,

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7]

To determine the modulation order and transport block size(s) in the physical downlink shared channel, the UE shall first

  • read the 5-bit “modulation and coding scheme” field () in the DCI

and second if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

else

  • set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator to the total number of allocated PRBs based on the procedure defined in Section 7.1.6.

if the transport block is transmitted in DwPTS of the special subframe in frame structure type 2, then

set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator ,

else, set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator .

The UE may skip decoding a transport block in an initial transmission if the effective channel code rate is higher than 0.930, where the effective channel code rate is defined as the number of downlink information bits (including CRC bits) divided by the number of physical channel bits on PDSCH. If the UE skips decoding, the physical layer indicates to higher layer that the transport block is not successfully decoded. For the special subframe configurations 0 and 5 with normal CP or configurations 0 and 4 with extended CP, shown in table 4.2-1 [3], there shall be no PDSCH transmission in DwPTS of the special subframe.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.1]

The UE shall use = 2 if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI, otherwise, the UE shall useand Table 7.1.7.1-1 to determine the modulation order () used in the physical downlink shared channel.

For a transport block that is not mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1. For a transport block that is mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.2.

NOTE: In carrier aggregation operation, the DL-SCH processing capability can be shared by the UE with that of MCH received from a serving cell. If the total eNB scheduling for DL-SCH and an MCH in one serving cell at a given TTI is larger than the defined processing capability, the prioritization between DL-SCH and MCH is left up to UE implementation.

NOTE 1: In carrier aggregation operation, the DL-SCH processing capability can be shared by the UE with that of MCH received from a serving cell. If the total eNB scheduling for DL-SCH and an MCH in one serving cell at a given TTI is larger than the defined processing capability, the prioritization between DL-SCH and MCH is left up to UE implementation.

NOTE 2: Within one TTI, a UE indicating category 0 shall be able to receive up to 1000 bits for a transport block associated with C-RNTI/Semi-Persistent Scheduling C-RNTI/P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI and up to 2216 bits for another transport block associated with P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI.

Note 3: The UE indicating category x shall reach the value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of category x. The UE shall determine the required value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of the corresponding category, based on its capabilities (i.e. CA band combination, MIMO, Modulation scheme). If the UE capability of CA band combination, MIMO and modulation scheme supported can exceed the upper limit of the defined range, the UE shall support the maximum value of the defined range indicated by "Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI" of the corresponding category.

Note 1: Each PDCP SDU is limited to 1500 octets (to keep below maximum SDU size of ESM as specified in TS 24.301 clause 9.9.4.12).

The PDCP SDU size of each PDCP SDU is

PDCP SDU size = (TBsize – N*PDCP header size – AMD PDU header size – MAC header size – Size of Timing Advance – RLC Status PDU size) / N, where

PDCP header size is 16 bits for the RLC AM and 12-bit SN case;
AMD PDU header size is CEIL[(16+(N-1)*12)/8] bytes which includes 16 standard AM header and (N-1) Length indicators; and
MAC header size = 40 bits as MAC header can be

R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (16 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU) +R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU for AMD PDU) = 8 + 16+ 8 bits = 32 bits
OR
R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (24 bits for MAC SDU for AMD PDU, Note: Length can be 2 bytes depending on the size of AMD PDU) +R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU) = 8 + 24+ 8 bits = 40 bits
Therefore maximum MAC header size can be 40 bits
Size of Timing Advance MAC CE is 8 bits (if no Timing Advance and/or RLC status needs to be sent, padding will occur instead)
RLC Status PDU size = 16 bits

This gives:
PDCP SDU size = 8*FLOOR((TBsize – N*16- 8*CEIL((16+(N-1)*12)/8) – 64)/(8*N)) bits

Note 2: According to TS 36.213 Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 and the final PDCP SDU size formula in Note 1, the smallest TBsize that can be tested is 104 bits.

[TS 36.212 clause 5.3.3.1.3]

DCI format 1A is used for the compact scheduling of one PDSCH codeword and random access procedure initiated by a PDCCH order.

The following information is transmitted by means of the DCI format 1A:

– Flag for format0/format1A differentiation – 1 bit, where value 0 indicates format 0 and value 1 indicates format 1A

Otherwise,

– Localized/Distributed VRB assignment flag – 1 bit as defined in 7.1.6.3 of [3]

– Resource block assignment – bits as defined in section 7.1.6.3 of [3]:

– For localized VRB:

bits provide the resource allocation

– For distributed VRB:

– If or if the format 1A CRC is scrambled by RA-RNTI, P-RNTI, or SI-RNTI

– bits provide the resource allocation

– Else

– 1 bit, the MSB indicates the gap value, where value 0 indicates and value 1 indicates

– bits provide the resource allocation

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

If the number of information bits in format 1A is less than that of format 0, zeros shall be appended to format 1A until the payload size equals that of format 0.

If the number of information bits in format 1A belongs to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1, one zero bit shall be appended to format 1A.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.6.3]

In resource allocations of type 2, the resource block assignment information indicates to a scheduled UE a set of contiguously allocated localized virtual resource blocks or distributed virtual resource blocks. In case of resource allocation signalled with PDCCH DCI format 1A, 1B or 1D, one bit flag indicates whether localized virtual resource blocks or distributed virtual resource blocks are assigned (value 0 indicates Localized and value 1 indicates Distributed VRB assignment) while distributed virtual resource blocks are always assigned in case of resource allocation signalled with PDCCH DCI format 1C. Localized VRB allocations for a UE vary from a single VRB up to a maximum number of VRBs spanning the system bandwidth. For DCI format 1A the distributed VRB allocations for a UE vary from a single VRB up to VRBs, where is defined in [3], if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI. With PDCCH DCI format 1B, 1D, or 1A with a CRC scrambled with C-RNTI, distributed VRB allocations for a UE vary from a single VRB up to VRBs if is 6-49 and vary from a single VRB up to 16 if is 50-110. With PDCCH DCI format 1C, distributed VRB allocations for a UE vary from VRB(s) up to VRBs with an increment step of , where value is determined depending on the downlink system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.3-1.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7]

To determine the modulation order and transport block size(s) in the physical downlink shared channel, the UE shall first

  • read the 5-bit “modulation and coding scheme” field () in the DCI

and second if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

else

  • set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator to the total number of allocated PRBs based on the procedure defined in Section 7.1.6.

if the transport block is transmitted in DwPTS of the special subframe in frame structure type 2, then

set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator ,

else, set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator .

The UE may skip decoding a transport block in an initial transmission if the effective channel code rate is higher than 0.930, where the effective channel code rate is defined as the number of downlink information bits (including CRC bits) divided by the number of physical channel bits on PDSCH. If the UE skips decoding, the physical layer indicates to higher layer that the transport block is not successfully decoded. For the special subframe configurations 0 and 5 with normal CP or configurations 0 and 4 with extended CP, shown in table 4.2-1 [3], there shall be no PDSCH transmission in DwPTS of the special subframe.

NOTE: In carrier aggregation operation, the DL-SCH processing capability can be shared by the UE with that of MCH received from a serving cell. If the total eNB scheduling for DL-SCH and an MCH in one serving cell at a given TTI is larger than the defined processing capability, the prioritization between DL-SCH and MCH is left up to UE implementation.

NOTE 1: In carrier aggregation operation, the DL-SCH processing capability can be shared by the UE with that of MCH received from a serving cell. If the total eNB scheduling for DL-SCH and an MCH in one serving cell at a given TTI is larger than the defined processing capability, the prioritization between DL-SCH and MCH is left up to UE implementation.

NOTE 2: Within one TTI, a UE indicating category 0 shall be able to receive up to 1000 bits for a transport block associated with C-RNTI/Semi-Persistent Scheduling C-RNTI/P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI and up to 2216 bits for another transport block associated with P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI.

Note 3: The UE indicating category x shall reach the value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of category x. The UE shall determine the required value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of the corresponding category, based on its capabilities (i.e. CA band combination, MIMO, Modulation scheme). If the UE capability of CA band combination, MIMO and modulation scheme supported can exceed the upper limit of the defined range, the UE shall support the maximum value of the defined range indicated by "Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI" of the corresponding category.

Note 1: Each PDCP SDU is limited to 1500 octets (to keep below maximum SDU size of ESM as specified in TS 24.301 clause 9.9.4.12).

The PDCP SDU size of each PDCP SDU is

PDCP SDU size = (TBsize – N*PDCP header size -AMD PDU header size – MAC header size – Size of Timing Advance – RLC Status PDU size) / N, where

PDCP header size is 16 bits for the RLC AM and 12-bit SN case;
AMD PDU header size is CEIL[(16+(N-1)*12)/8] bytes which includes 16 standard AM header and (N-1) Length indicators; and

MAC header size = 40 bits as MAC header can be

R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (16 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU for AMD PDU) = 8 + 16+ 8 bits = 32 bits

Or

R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (24 bits for MAC SDU for AMD PDU, Note: Length can be 2 bytes depending on the size of AMD PDU) +R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU) = 8 + 24+ 8 bits = 40 bits

Therefore maximum MAC header size can be 40 bits

Size of Timing Advance MAC CE is 8 bits (if no Timing Advance and/or RLC status needs to be sent, padding will occur instead)
RLC Status PDU size = 16 bits

This gives:

PDCP SDU size = 8*FLOOR((TBsize – N*16- 8*CEIL((16+(N-1)*12)/8) – 64)/(8*N)) bits.

Note 2: According to TS 36.213 Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 and the final PDCP SDU size formula in Note 1, the smallest TBsize that can be tested is 104 bits.

DCI format 1A is used for the compact scheduling of one PDSCH codeword and random access procedure initiated by a PDCCH order.

The following information is transmitted by means of the DCI format 1A:

– Flag for format0/format1A differentiation – 1 bit, where value 0 indicates format 0 and value 1 indicates format 1A

Otherwise,

– Localized/Distributed VRB assignment flag – 1 bit as defined in 7.1.6.3 of [3]

– Resource block assignment – bits as defined in section 7.1.6.3 of [3]:

– For localized VRB:

bits provide the resource allocation

– For distributed VRB:

– If or if the format 1A CRC is scrambled by RA-RNTI, P-RNTI, or SI-RNTI

– bits provide the resource allocation

– Else

– 1 bit, the MSB indicates the gap value, where value 0 indicates and value 1 indicates

– bits provide the resource allocation

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

If the number of information bits in format 1A is less than that of format 0, zeros shall be appended to format 1A until the payload size equals that of format 0.

If the number of information bits in format 1A belongs to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1, one zero bit shall be appended to format 1A.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.6.3]

In resource allocations of type 2, the resource block assignment information indicates to a scheduled UE a set of contiguously allocated localized virtual resource blocks or distributed virtual resource blocks. In case of resource allocation signalled with PDCCH DCI format 1A, 1B or 1D, one bit flag indicates whether localized virtual resource blocks or distributed virtual resource blocks are assigned (value 0 indicates Localized and value 1 indicates Distributed VRB assignment) while distributed virtual resource blocks are always assigned in case of resource allocation signalled with PDCCH DCI format 1C. Localized VRB allocations for a UE vary from a single VRB up to a maximum number of VRBs spanning the system bandwidth. For DCI format 1A the distributed VRB allocations for a UE vary from a single VRB up to VRBs, where is defined in [3], if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI. With PDCCH DCI format 1B, 1D, or 1A with a CRC scrambled with C-RNTI, distributed VRB allocations for a UE vary from a single VRB up to VRBs if is 6-49 and vary from a single VRB up to 16 if is 50-110. With PDCCH DCI format 1C, distributed VRB allocations for a UE vary from VRB(s) up to VRBs with an increment step of , where value is determined depending on the downlink system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.3-1.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7]

To determine the modulation order and transport block size(s) in the physical downlink shared channel, the UE shall first

  • read the 5-bit “modulation and coding scheme” field () in the DCI

and second if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

else

  • set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator to the total number of allocated PRBs based on the procedure defined in Section 7.1.6.

if the transport block is transmitted in DwPTS of the special subframe in frame structure type 2, then

set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator ,

else, set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator .

The UE may skip decoding a transport block in an initial transmission if the effective channel code rate is higher than 0.930, where the effective channel code rate is defined as the number of downlink information bits (including CRC bits) divided by the number of physical channel bits on PDSCH. If the UE skips decoding, the physical layer indicates to higher layer that the transport block is not successfully decoded. For the special subframe configurations 0 and 5 with normal CP or configurations 0 and 4 with extended CP, shown in table 4.2-1 [3], there shall be no PDSCH transmission in DwPTS of the special subframe.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.2]

If the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

– for DCI format 1A:

– the UE shall set the TBS index () equal to and determine its TBS by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1.

else

– for, the UE shall first determine the TBS index () usingand Table 7.1.7.1-1 except if the transport block is disabled in DCI formats 2 and 2A as specified below. For a transport block that is not mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1. For a transport block that is mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.2.

– for, the TBS is assumed to be as determined from DCI transported in the latest PDCCH for the same transport block using . If there is no latest PDCCH for the same transport block using, and if the initial PDSCH for the same transport block is semi-persistently scheduled, the TBS shall be determined from the most recent semi-persistent scheduling assignment PDCCH.

– In DCI formats 2 and 2A a transport block is disabled if and if rvidx = 1 otherwise the transport block is enabled.

The NDI and HARQ process ID, as signalled on PDCCH, and the TBS, as determined above, shall be delivered to higher layers.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.2.1]

For, the TBS is given by the (,) entry of Table 7.1.7.2.1-1.

7.1.7.1.4.3 Test description

7.1.7.1.4.3.1 Pre-test conditions

System Simulator:

– Cell 1.

– Uplink and downlink bandwidth set to the maximum bandwidth for the E-UTRA Band under test as specified in Table 5.6.1-1 in [31] (to enable testing of up to maximum value). For Band 18, Band 19 and Band 25, based on industry requirement, uplink and downlink bandwidth set to 10MHz.

– DCI format 1C shall be used for BCCH, PCH and RAR (note).

UE:

None.

Preamble:

– The UE is in state Loopback Activated (state 4) according to [18].

NOTE: To maximize resources for DL-SCH TB size testing for DCI format 1A/RA type 2/Distributed VRB then the SS need to use DCI Format 1C for BCCH, PCH and RAR

Note 1: Each PDCP SDU is limited to 1500 octets (to keep below maximum SDU size of ESM as specified in TS 24.301 clause 9.9.4.12).

The PDCP SDU size of each PDCP SDU is

PDCP SDU size = (TBsize – N*PDCP header size – AMD PDU header size – MAC header size – Size of Timing Advance – RLC Status PDU size) / N, where

PDCP header size is 16 bits for the RLC AM and 12-bit SN case;
AMD PDU header size is CEIL[(16+(N-1)*12)/8] bytes which includes 16 standard AM header and (N-1) Length indicators; and

MAC header size = 40 bits as MAC header can be
R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (16 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU for AMD PDU) = 8 + 16 + 8 bits = 32 bits
OR
R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (24 bits for MAC SDU for AMD PDU, Note: Length can be 2 bytes depending on the size of AMD PDU) +R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for MAC SDU for RLC Status PDU) = 8 + 24+ 8 bits = 40 bits

Therefore maximum MAC header size can be 40 bits
Size of Timing Advance MAC CE is 8 bits (if no Timing Advance and/or RLC status needs to be sent, padding will occur instead)
RLC Status PDU size = 16 bits

This gives:

PDCP SDU size = 8*FLOOR((TBsize – N*16- 8*CEIL((16+(N-1)*12)/8) – 64)/(8*N)) bits.

Note 2: According to TS 36.213 Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 and the final PDCP SDU size formula in Note 1, the smallest TBsize that can be tested is 104 bits.

SS creates one or more PDCP SDUs, depending on TBsize, in accordance with Table 7.1.7.1.4.3.2-2.

3

SS transmits the PDCP SDUs concatenated into a MAC PDU and indicates on PDCCH DCI Format 1A with RA type 2 using Distributed VRB and a resource block assignment (RBA) correspondent to as specified in 7.1.6.3 in TS 36.213 and modulation and coding scheme .

If the number of information bits in format 1A is less than that of format 0, zeros shall be appended by the SS to format 1A until the payload size equals that of format 0.

If the number of information bits in format 1A belongs to one of the sizes in Table 7.1.7.1.4.3.2-2b, one zero bit shall be appended by the SS to format 1A.

The following information is transmitted by means of the DCI format 2A:

– Resource allocation header (resource allocation type 0 / type 1) – 1 bit as defined in section 7.1.6 of [3]

If downlink bandwidth is less than or equal to 10 PRBs, there is no resource allocation header and resource allocation type 0 is assumed.

– Resource block assignment:

– For resource allocation type 0 as defined in section 7.1.6.1 of [3]

– bits provide the resource allocation

where the value of P depends on the number of DL resource blocks as indicated in subclause [7.1.6.1] of [3]

– Transport block to codeword swap flag – 1 bit

In addition, for transport block 1:

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

– New data indicator – 1 bit

– Redundancy version – 2 bits

In addition, for transport block 2:

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

– New data indicator – 1 bit

– Redundancy version – 2 bits

Precoding information – number of bits as specified in Table 5.3.3.1.5A-1

If both transport blocks are enabled, the transport block to codeword mapping is specified according to Table 5.3.3.1.5‑1.

In case one of the transport blocks is disabled, the transport block to codeword swap flag is reserved and the transport block to codeword mapping is specified according to Table 5.3.3.1.5‑2.

The precoding information field is defined according to Table 5.3.3.1.5A‑2. For a single enabled codeword, index 1 in Table 5.3.3.1.5A-2 is only supported for retransmission of the corresponding transport block if that transport block has previously been transmitted using two layers with open-loop spatial multiplexing.

For transmission with 2 antenna ports, the precoding information field is not present. The number of transmission layers is equal to 2 if both codewords are enabled; transmit diversity is used if codeword 0 is enabled while codeword 1 is disabled.

If the number of information bits in format 2A belongs to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1, one zero bit shall be appended to format 2A.

In resource allocations of type 0, resource block assignment information includes a bitmap indicating the resource block groups (RBGs) that are allocated to the scheduled UE where a RBG is a set of consecutive physical resource blocks (PRBs). Resource block group size (P) is a function of the system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.1-1. The total number of RBGs () for downlink system bandwidth of PRBs is given by where of the RBGs are of size P and if then one of the RBGs is of size. The bitmap is of size bits with one bitmap bit per RBG such that each RBG is addressable. The RBGs shall be indexed in the order of increasing frequency and non-increasing RBG sizes starting at the lowest frequency. The order of RBG to bitmap bit mapping is in such way that RBG 0 to RBG are mapped to MSB to LSB of the bitmap. The RBG is allocated to the UE if the corresponding bit value in the bitmap is 1, the RBG is not allocated to the UE otherwise.

To determine the modulation order and transport block size(s) in the physical downlink shared channel, the UE shall first

– read the 5-bit “modulation and coding scheme” field () in the DCI

and second if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

else

– set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator to the total number of allocated PRBs based on the procedure defined in Section 7.1.6.

if the transport block is transmitted in DwPTS of the special subframe in frame structure type 2, then

set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator ,

else, set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator .

The UE may skip decoding a transport block in an initial transmission if the effective channel code rate is higher than 0.930, where the effective channel code rate is defined as the number of downlink information bits (including CRC bits) divided by the number of physical channel bits on PDSCH. If the UE skips decoding, the physical layer indicates to higher layer that the transport block is not successfully decoded. For the special subframe configurations 0 and 5 with normal CP or configurations 0 and 4 with extended CP, shown in table 4.2-1 [3], there shall be no PDSCH transmission in DwPTS of the special subframe.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.1]

The UE shall use = 2 if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI, otherwise, the UE shall useand Table 7.1.7.1-1 to determine the modulation order () used in the physical downlink shared channel.

If the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

– for DCI format 1A:

– the UE shall set the TBS index () equal to and determine its TBS by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1.

else

– for, the UE shall first determine the TBS index () usingand Table 7.1.7.1-1 except if the transport block is disabled in DCI formats 2 and 2A as specified below. For a transport block that is not mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1. For a transport block that is mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.2.

– for, the TBS is assumed to be as determined from DCI transported in the latest PDCCH for the same transport block using . If there is no latest PDCCH for the same transport block using, and if the initial PDSCH for the same transport block is semi-persistently scheduled, the TBS shall be determined from the most recent semi-persistent scheduling assignment PDCCH.

– In DCI formats 2 and 2A a transport block is disabled if and if rvidx = 1 otherwise the transport block is enabled.

The NDI and HARQ process ID, as signalled on PDCCH, and the TBS, as determined above, shall be delivered to higher layers.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.2.1]

For, the TBS is given by the (,) entry of Table 7.1.7.2.1-1.

NOTE: In carrier aggregation operation, the DL-SCH processing capability can be shared by the UE with that of MCH received from a serving cell. If the total eNB scheduling for DL-SCH and an MCH in one serving cell at a given TTI is larger than the defined processing capability, the prioritization between DL-SCH and MCH is left up to UE implementation.

NOTE 1: In carrier aggregation operation, the DL-SCH processing capability can be shared by the UE with that of MCH received from a serving cell. If the total eNB scheduling for DL-SCH and an MCH in one serving cell at a given TTI is larger than the defined processing capability, the prioritization between DL-SCH and MCH is left up to UE implementation.

NOTE 2: Within one TTI, a UE indicating category 0 shall be able to receive up to 1000 bits for a transport block associated with C-RNTI/Semi-Persistent Scheduling C-RNTI/P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI and up to 2216 bits for another transport block associated with P-RNTI/SI-RNTI/RA-RNTI.

Note 3: The UE indicating category x shall reach the value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of category x. The UE shall determine the required value within the defined range indicated by “Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI” of the corresponding category, based on its capabilities (i.e. CA band combination, MIMO, Modulation scheme). If the UE capability of CA band combination, MIMO and modulation scheme supported can exceed the upper limit of the defined range, the UE shall support the maximum value of the defined range indicated by "Maximum number of DL-SCH transport block bits received within a TTI" of the corresponding category.

Note 1: Each PDCP SDU is limited to 1500 octets (to keep below maximum SDU size of ESM as specified in TS 24.301 clause 9.9.4.12).

The PDCP SDU size of each PDCP SDU is

PDCP SDU size = (Total TBsize –N*PDCP header size – AMD PDU header size – – MAC header size – Size of Timing Advance– RLC Status PDU size) / N, where

PDCP header size is 16 bits for the RLC AM and 12-bit SN case;

AMD PDU header size is CEIL[(Number of TBs *16+(N-1)*12)/8] bytes which includes one 16 bit standard AM header per TB and N-1 Length indicators of 12 bits corresponding to the worst case when one of the PDCP SDU is split between the two transport blocks. If no PDCP SDU is split between the transport blocks then there will be only N-2 LIs and MAC padding will occur instead of one LI;

MAC header size = R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (24 bits for MAC SDU for RLC data PDU)+ Number of TBs R/R/E/LCID MAC subheaders (8 bits for MAC SDU for RLC status PDU) = 8 +24 + Number of TBs * 8 bits; If status PDU is not included or, MAC LI is included for MAC SDU for RLC status PDU instead of RLC data PDU, MAC padding will occur in place of unused bits

Size of Timing Advance MAC CE is 8 bits (if no Timing Advance needs to be sent, padding will occur instead);

RLC Status PDU size = 16 bits (including one ACK SQN triggered in execution X+1, due to loop back transmission in execution X and as all loop backed PDUs in execution X have been correctly received, the status PDU will carry an ACK SQN only.

This gives:

PDCP SDU size = 8*FLOOR((Total TBsize – N*16- 8*CEIL((2*16+(N-1)*12)/8) – 72)/(8*N)) bits

Note 2: According to TS 36.213 Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 and the final PDCP SDU size formula in Note 1, the smallest total TBsize that can be tested (corresponding to N=1, and PDCP SDU size of 16) is 136 bits.

The following information is transmitted by means of the DCI format 2A:

– Resource allocation header (resource allocation type 0 / type 1) – 1 bit as defined in section 7.1.6 of [3]

If downlink bandwidth is less than or equal to 10 PRBs, there is no resource allocation header and resource allocation type 0 is assumed.

– Resource block assignment:

– For resource allocation type 1 as defined in section 7.1.6.2 of [3]

– bits of this field are used as a header specific to this resource allocation type to indicate the selected resource blocks subset

– 1 bit indicates a shift of the resource allocation span

– bits provide the resource allocation

where the value of P depends on the number of DL resource blocks as indicated in subclause [7.1.6.1] of [3]

– Transport block to codeword swap flag – 1 bit

In addition, for transport block 1:

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

– New data indicator – 1 bit

– Redundancy version – 2 bits

In addition, for transport block 2:

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

– New data indicator – 1 bit

– Redundancy version – 2 bits

If both transport blocks are enabled, the transport block to codeword mapping is specified according to Table 5.3.3.1.5‑1.

If the number of information bits in format 2A belongs to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1, one zero bit shall be appended to format 2A.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.6.2]

In resource allocations of type 1, a resource block assignment information of size indicates to a scheduled UE the VRBs from the set of VRBs from one of P RBG subsets. The virtual resource blocks used are of localized type as defined in subclause 6.2.3.1 of [3]. Also P is the RBG size associated with the system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.1-1. A RBG subset , where , consists of every th RBG starting from RBG . The resource block assignment information consists of three fields [4].

The first field with bits is used to indicate the selected RBG subset among RBG subsets.

The second field with one bit is used to indicate a shift of the resource allocation span within a subset. A bit value of 1 indicates shift is triggered. Shift is not triggered otherwise.

The third field includes a bitmap, where each bit of the bitmap addresses a single VRB in the selected RBG subset in such a way that MSB to LSB of the bitmap are mapped to the VRBs in the increasing frequency order. The VRB is allocated to the UE if the corresponding bit value in the bit field is 1, the VRB is not allocated to the UE otherwise. The portion of the bitmap used to address VRBs in a selected RBG subset has size and is defined as

The addressable VRB numbers of a selected RBG subset start from an offset, to the smallest VRB number within the selected RBG subset, which is mapped to the MSB of the bitmap. The offset is in terms of the number of VRBs and is done within the selected RBG subset. If the value of the bit in the second field for shift of the resource allocation span is set to 0, the offset for RBG subset is given by . Otherwise, the offset for RBG subset is given by , where the LSB of the bitmap is justified with the highest VRB number within the selected RBG subset. is the number of VRBs in RBG subset and can be calculated by the following equation,

Consequently, when RBG subset is indicated, bit for in the bitmap field indicates VRB number,

.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7]

To determine the modulation order and transport block size(s) in the physical downlink shared channel, the UE shall first

– read the 5-bit “modulation and coding scheme” field () in the DCI

and second if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

else

– set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator to the total number of allocated PRBs based on the procedure defined in Section 7.1.6.

if the transport block is transmitted in DwPTS of the special subframe in frame structure type 2, then

set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator ,

else, set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator .

The UE may skip decoding a transport block in an initial transmission if the effective channel code rate is higher than 0.930, where the effective channel code rate is defined as the number of downlink information bits (including CRC bits) divided by the number of physical channel bits on PDSCH. If the UE skips decoding, the physical layer indicates to higher layer that the transport block is not successfully decoded. For the special subframe configurations 0 and 5 with normal CP or configurations 0 and 4 with extended CP, shown in table 4.2-1 [3], there shall be no PDSCH transmission in DwPTS of the special subframe.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.1]

The UE shall use = 2 if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI, otherwise, the UE shall useand Table 7.1.7.1-1 to determine the modulation order () used in the physical downlink shared channel.

If the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

– for DCI format 1A:

– the UE shall set the TBS index () equal to and determine its TBS by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1.

else

– for, the UE shall first determine the TBS index () usingand Table 7.1.7.1-1 except if the transport block is disabled in DCI formats 2 and 2A as specified below. For a transport block that is not mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.1. For a transport block that is mapped to two-layer spatial multiplexing, the TBS is determined by the procedure in Section 7.1.7.2.2.

Note 1: Each PDCP SDU is limited to 1500 octets (to keep below maximum SDU size of ESM as specified in TS 24.301 clause 9.9.4.12).

The PDCP SDU size of each PDCP SDU is

PDCP SDU size = (Total TBsize –N*PDCP header size – AMD PDU header size – – MAC header size – Size of Timing Advance– RLC Status PDU size) / N, where

PDCP header size is 16 bits for the RLC AM and 12-bit SN case;

AMD PDU header size is CEIL[(Number of TBs *16+(N-1)*12)/8] bytes which includes one 16 bit standard AM header per TB and N-1 Length indicators of 12 bits corresponding to the worst case when one of the PDCP SDU is split between the two transport blocks. If no PDCP SDU is split between the transport blocks then there will be only N-2 LIs and MAC padding will occur instead of one LI;

MAC header size = R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (8 bits for Timing Advance) + R/R/E/LCID MAC subheader (24 bits for MAC SDU for RLC data PDU)+ Number of TBs R/R/E/LCID MAC subheaders (8 bits for MAC SDU for RLC status PDU) = 8 +24 + Number of TBs * 8 bits; If status PDU is not included or, MAC LI is included for MAC SDU for RLC status PDU instead of RLC data PDU, MAC padding will occur in place of unused bits

Size of Timing Advance MAC CE is 8 bits (if no Timing Advance needs to be sent, padding will occur instead);

RLC Status PDU size = 16 bits (including one ACK SQN triggered in execution X+1, due to loop back transmission in execution X and as all loop backed PDUs in execution X have been correctly received, the status PDU will carry an ACK SQN only.

This gives:

PDCP SDU size = 8*FLOOR((Total TBsize – N*16- 8*CEIL((2*16+(N-1)*12)/8) – 72)/(8*N)) bits

Note 2: According to TS 36.213 Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 and the final PDCP SDU size formula in Note 1, the smallest total TBsize that can be tested (corresponding to N=1, and PDCP SDU size of 16) is 136 bits.

The following information is transmitted by means of the DCI format 2A:

– Resource allocation header (resource allocation type 0 / type 1) – 1 bit as defined in section 7.1.6 of [3]

If downlink bandwidth is less than or equal to 10 PRBs, there is no resource allocation header and resource allocation type 0 is assumed.

– Resource block assignment:

– For resource allocation type 0 as defined in section 7.1.6.1 of [3]

– bits provide the resource allocation

where the value of P depends on the number of DL resource blocks as indicated in subclause [7.1.6.1] of [3]

– Transport block to codeword swap flag – 1 bit

In addition, for transport block 1:

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

– New data indicator – 1 bit

– Redundancy version – 2 bits

In addition, for transport block 2:

– Modulation and coding scheme – 5 bits as defined in section 7.1.7 of [3]

– New data indicator – 1 bit

– Redundancy version – 2 bits

Precoding information – number of bits as specified in Table 5.3.3.1.5A-1

If both transport blocks are enabled, the transport block to codeword mapping is specified according to Table 5.3.3.1.5-1.

In case one of the transport blocks is disabled, the transport block to codeword swap flag is reserved and the transport block to codeword mapping is specified according to Table 5.3.3.1.5‑2.

The precoding information field is defined according to Table 5.3.3.1.5A‑2. For a single enabled codeword, index 1 in Table 5.3.3.1.5A-2 is only supported for retransmission of the corresponding transport block if that transport block has previously been transmitted using two layers with open-loop spatial multiplexing.

For transmission with 2 antenna ports, the precoding information field is not present. The number of transmission layers is equal to 2 if both codewords are enabled; transmit diversity is used if codeword 0 is enabled while codeword 1 is disabled.

If the number of information bits in format 2A belongs to one of the sizes in Table 5.3.3.1.2-1, one zero bit shall be appended to format 2A.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.6.1]

In resource allocations of type 0, resource block assignment information includes a bitmap indicating the resource block groups (RBGs) that are allocated to the scheduled UE where a RBG is a set of consecutive physical resource blocks (PRBs). Resource block group size (P) is a function of the system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.1-1. The total number of RBGs () for downlink system bandwidth of PRBs is given by where of the RBGs are of size P and if then one of the RBGs is of size. The bitmap is of size bits with one bitmap bit per RBG such that each RBG is addressable. The RBGs shall be indexed in the order of increasing frequency and non-increasing RBG sizes starting at the lowest frequency. The order of RBG to bitmap bit mapping is in such way that RBG 0 to RBG are mapped to MSB to LSB of the bitmap. The RBG is allocated to the UE if the corresponding bit value in the bitmap is 1, the RBG is not allocated to the UE otherwise.

In resource allocations of type 1, a resource block assignment information of size indicates to a scheduled UE the VRBs from the set of VRBs from one of P RBG subsets. The virtual resource blocks used are of localized type as defined in subclause 6.2.3.1 of [3]. Also P is the RBG size associated with the system bandwidth as shown in Table 7.1.6.1-1. A RBG subset , where , consists of every th RBG starting from RBG . The resource block assignment information consists of three fields [4].

The first field with bits is used to indicate the selected RBG subset among RBG subsets.

The second field with one bit is used to indicate a shift of the resource allocation span within a subset. A bit value of 1 indicates shift is triggered. Shift is not triggered otherwise.

The third field includes a bitmap, where each bit of the bitmap addresses a single VRB in the selected RBG subset in such a way that MSB to LSB of the bitmap are mapped to the VRBs in the increasing frequency order. The VRB is allocated to the UE if the corresponding bit value in the bit field is 1, the VRB is not allocated to the UE otherwise. The portion of the bitmap used to address VRBs in a selected RBG subset has size and is defined as

The addressable VRB numbers of a selected RBG subset start from an offset, to the smallest VRB number within the selected RBG subset, which is mapped to the MSB of the bitmap. The offset is in terms of the number of VRBs and is done within the selected RBG subset. If the value of the bit in the second field for shift of the resource allocation span is set to 0, the offset for RBG subset is given by . Otherwise, the offset for RBG subset is given by , where the LSB of the bitmap is justified with the highest VRB number within the selected RBG subset. is the number of VRBs in RBG subset and can be calculated by the following equation,

Consequently, when RBG subset is indicated, bit for in the bitmap field indicates VRB number,

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7]

To determine the modulation order and transport block size(s) in the physical downlink shared channel, the UE shall first

– read the 5-bit “modulation and coding scheme” field () in the DCI

and second if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, or SI-RNTI then

else

– set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator to the total number of allocated PRBs based on the procedure defined in Section 7.1.6.

if the transport block is transmitted in DwPTS of the special subframe in frame structure type 2, then

set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator ,

else, set the Table 7.1.7.2.1-1 column indicator .

The UE may skip decoding a transport block in an initial transmission if the effective channel code rate is higher than 0.931, where the effective channel code rate is defined as the number of downlink information bits (including CRC bits) divided by the number of physical channel bits on PDSCH. If the UE skips decoding, the physical layer indicates to higher layer that the transport block is not successfully decoded. For the special subframe configurations 0 and 5 with normal downlink CP or configurations 0 and 4 with extended downlink CP in frame structure type 2, or for subframes with the same duration as the DwPTS duration of the special subframe configuration 0 and 5 in frame structure type 3, with the special subframe configurations shown in Table 4.2-1 of [3], a non-BL/CE UE shall assume there is no PDSCH transmission in DwPTS of the special subframe.

[TS 36.213 clause 7.1.7.1]

The UE shall use = 2 if the DCI CRC is scrambled by P-RNTI, RA-RNTI, SI-RNTI, or SC-RNTI, or if PDSCH is assigned by MPDCCH DCI Format 6-1B, or if PDSCH carriers SystemInformationBlockType1-BR, or if PDSCH carries BL/CE SI messages, otherwise,

– if the higher layer parameter altCQI-Table-r12 is configured, and if the PDSCH is assigned by a PDCCH/EPDCCH with DCI format 1/1B/1D/2/2A/2B/2C/2D with CRC scrambled by C-RNTI,

– if the assigned PDSCH is transmitted only in the second slot of a subframe, the UE shall useand Table 7.1.7.1-1A to determine the modulation order (). The modulation order () used in the physical downlink shared channel is set to ;

– otherwise, the UE shall useand Table 7.1.7.1-1A to determine the modulation order () used in the physical downlink shared channel.

– else

– if the assigned PDSCH is transmitted only in the second slot of a subframe, the UE shall useand Table 7.1.7.1-1 to determine the modulation order (). The modulation order () used in the physical down
