Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,101

1. A wireless transmit receive/unit (WTRU) comprising a transceiver operably connected to a processor, the processor configured to:determine at least one uplink component carrier and at least two downlink component carriers;
encode hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) information bits associated with the at least two downlink component carriers, wherein the HARQ information bits associated with each of the at least two downlink component carriers are jointly encoded;
map the jointly encoded HARQ information bits associated with the at least two downlink component carriers to one or more resource blocks that are used for reporting uplink control information; and
the transceiver configured to transmit the mapped HARQ information bits on physical uplink control channel (PUCCH) carried by a single uplink component carrier of the at least one uplink component carrier.
