Messages transmitted on the downlink PACCH may use an alternative block format. This format applies to RTTI configuration, for messages encoded using MCS-0 (see 3GPP TS 44.060). In this case, the 207 bit blocks, or 210 bit blocks in case an eTFI is included in a downlink PACCH block, are used in the downlink in the following way:

Figure 7.8: PTCCH downlink block format

The field mapping convention in this clause is that when a field is contained within a single octet, the highest bit number of the field represents the highest order value and lowest bit number of the field represents the lowest order value.

Spare bits are encoded with the binary value "0". Fill octets are encoded with the binary value "00101011".

7.9 PTCCH uplink block formats

Two alternative PTCCH uplink block formats are specified. The 8 bit (1 octet) blocks are used in the uplink in the following way:

Figure 7.9.b: PTCCH uplink block format

The field mapping convention of sub-clause 7.10 applies. In the addition, when a field spans more than one octet, the order of bit values within each octet progressively decreases as the octet number increases. In that part of a field contained in a given octet the lowest bit number represents the lowest order value.

7.9a Transport block formats (Iu mode)

7.9a.1 Generic transport block format

When FLO is used, a transport block may be of any size between 1 and 450 bits for GMSK channels, and between 1 and 1370 bits for 8PSK channels. Each transport block contains one RLC/MAC block.

<‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑‑

A TFC is defined that shall be used for signalling. It may also be used for data. For this TFC, the transport block format contains 23 octets.

7.9b EC-BCCH/EC-CCCH/EC-PDTCH/EC-PACCH block formats

7.9b.1 EC-BCCH

See subclause 7.3.1.

7.9b.2 EC-CCCH

7.9b.2.1 EC-PCH/EC-AGCH

The 11 octets blocks are used in the downlink in the way shown in figure 7.9b.1.

Figure 7.9b.1: EC-PCH/EC-AGCH downlink block format

7.9b.2.2 EC-RACH

See subclause 7.4a for the 11 bit RACH format.

7.9b.3 EC-PDTCH

See subclause 7.6.5 to 7.6.13 for MCS-1 to MCS-9 respectively for the case that no eTFI and no PAN is included in the block.

In the downlink the first three bits in the first octet are carried by the USF and the value of this field may vary between different blind physical layer transmissions (i.e. for EC-PDTCH/D/4, EC-PDTCH/D/8, EC-PDTCH/D/16).

7.9b.4 EC-PACCH

7.9b.4.1 Downlink

The 10 octets block is used in the downlink in the way shown in figure 7.9b.2.

Figure 7.9b.2: EC-PACCH downlink block format

A 3-bit USF may optionally be added to the block. A different USF value may be included in each block when several blind physical layer transmissions are used in the downlink (i.e. for EC-PACCH/D/4, EC-PACCH/D/8 and EC-PACCH/D/16).

7.9b.4.2 Uplink

The 8 octets block is used in the uplink in the way shown in figure 7.9b.3.

Figure 7.9b.3: EC-PACCH uplink block format

If the EC-PACCH is transmitted using Access Bursts, it is referred to as EC-PACCH short acknowledgement block format and follows the format described in subclause 7.7 for the 11-bit RLC/MAC block.

7.10 Order of bit transmission

On channels for normal burst transmission having a block format with an integer N number of octets, the N octets are mapped onto 8N bits, d(0) to d(8N-1), defined in 3GPP TS 45.003 clause 4 and 5 as follows:

Bit m of octet n shall be transmitted as bit d((n‑1)*8+m‑1) with m=(1..8) and n=(1..N).

On channels for normal burst transmission having a block format with a non-integer number of octets, or for transmission having a defined block format but which does not follow the normal burst transmission, the octets are mapped onto M bits, d(0) to d(M-1), defined in 3GPP TS 45.003 clause 5 as follows:

Bit m of octet n shall be transmitted as bit d(8(n‑1) + m‑1) with n = (1 .. ((M-1) DIV 8) + 1)) and m = (1 .. min (8, (M – 8(n-1))), and where ‘DIV’ is the integer division operator.
