Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,100

3. A base station configured to acquire uplink control information (UCI) from a user equipment (UE), the base station comprising:a processor; and
a non-transitory machine-readable memory storing instructions, executable by the processor, for:
receiving, from the UE, the UCI via a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH) when overlapping symbols between the PUCCH and a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) within a slot exists; and
receiving the PUSCH in non-overlapping symbols in the slot, wherein the UE drops the overlapping symbols of the PUSCH in the slot;
wherein the non-transitory machine-readable memory further stores instructions for determining that a simultaneous transmission of the PUCCH and the PUSCH is not supported before determining whether the channel collision between the PUCCH and the PUSCH has occurred.
