Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,070

1. A user equipment (UE), comprising:a receiver;
a transmitter;
a processor; and
a non-transitory computer-readable medium including computer-executable instructions that, when executed by the processor, facilitate the UE carrying out a method comprising:
receiving, by the receiver cooperatively operating with the processor, a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) in an nth timeslot, wherein n is a positive integer;
determining, by the processor, a first physical uplink control channel (PUCCH) resource index of a first PUCCH in an (n+k)th timeslot according to a first resource index offset and a minimum index value, wherein the first resource index offset indicates an offset of the resource index of the first PUCCH, the first resource index offset is obtained from higher layer signaling, the minimum index value is a minimum index value of a control channel element that carries the physical downlink control channel, and k is a preset positive integer;
determining, by the processor, according to the first PUCCH resource index, an index of a second physical resource block (PRB) on which a second PUCCH in the (n+k)th timeslot is located, and a second PUCCH resource on the second PRB; and
sending, by the transmitter cooperatively operating with the processor, the first PUCCH and the second PUCCH, wherein an information carried by the first PUCCH and an information carried by the second PUCCH meet a preset relationship,
wherein the first PUCCH and the second PUCCH carry an uplink control information,
wherein the uplink control information includes at least one type of information taken from the group consisting of:
feedback information for a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) in the nth timeslot;
a channel state information (CSI) of a downlink; and
a scheduling request (SR).
