Claim of US Patent No. 10,798,688

11. A configuring radio node for a New Radio, NR, radio access network, the configuring radio node comprising processing circuitry and being configured to utilize the processing circuitry to:cause transmission of a code rate indication for a user equipment to use for feedback control signaling, the code rate indication indicating a code rate for encoding control information bits of a plurality of control information types of the feedback control signaling;
the feedback control signaling representing a number I of control information bits of the plurality of control information types, the I control information bits being:
encoded with a code rate based at least in part on the code rate indication;
encoded according to a first coding scheme if I is not greater than 11 bits; and
encoded according to a second coding scheme if I is greater than 11 bits:
a number of physical resource blocks used for transmitting the feedback control signaling being based on the code rate indication; and
the feedback control signaling representing the plurality of control information types including acknowledgement information, measurement information and a scheduling request; and
receive the feedback control signaling.
